Wishing You Luck

It's time for the wearing of the green so go dig out your green sweater from the moth balls.  What about green bagels and beer, where do you stand on those?  Those kind of gross me out.  I prefer to have uncolored Irish Soda Bread and if you can get some very lean and thin cut corned beef and then top it off with some Baily's Irish Cream...

don't forget the inside

At the Pile It On Challenge blog we're going with the green theme too.  This week our challenge #11 is St. Patrick's Day and/or Shades of Green.  It's sponsored by Simon Says who will give the winner a $15 gift certificate for their store.  So why not play along for a chance to win.
