St. Patricks Day

Tomorrow is St Patricks Day, so make sure you wear green, and although I may not be st patricks dayIrish, I like to reflect on and acknowledge just how very lucky I am! I have been blessed with so much in this life and am so truly fortunate, that my list could end up in a book. So, if you aren’t celebrating your heritage or even if you are, take a moment tomorrow to reflect on how lucky you are. There are so many people in the world who look at just surviving as being lucky. And the fact that a lot of us are fed, clothed, loved, healthy, and have a roof over our head should consider that as being lucky.

My utmost favorite thing to bake is bread, and when I found out I was celiac this is what devastated me the most. I thought that my passion of being a bread baker had been crushed and I had to take another route as a baker. Little did I know that baking gluten free bread is just as fun. I will be making this yummy GF Irish Soda Bread from The Peaceful Haven to go along with my bangers and mash (my husband isn’t a fan of corned beef and cabbage) and gluten free omission green beer. I will make sure to post a picture of my finished product on my Instagram page @bakercam19.

Enjoy everyone and Happy St. Patricks Day!
