SEEING GREEN?

Everyone is a little Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day”.

Each year St. Patrick’s day is celebrated not only in Ireland but throughout the world by Irish and non-Irish alike.

It’s celebrated at Stirling Carpet & Flooring With our festive Tree!

This Year, maybe a little Irish Coffee to send off our crew in good spirits! Now, now, it’s not what you think!

No one is going to be helping themselves to a pint or a whiskey on the job, so here is an Irish Cream recipe that can be safely enjoyed by each lass and lad – whether it be bucketing down (raining) or the day be grand.

Top your Coffee with a little Irish Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

  • In a blender, combine the first eight ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Store in the refrigerator.
  • For each serving, place coffee in a mug. Stir in 1/3 cup Irish cream. Heat mixture in a microwave if desired.
  • Yield: 3-1/3 cups and 10 servings

Truth be told

I don’t have a favourite colour! EEEK! Is that bad?

My colour preferences change monthly, sometimes….daily! But this month, maybe through St. Paddy’s influence; green is my go to.

These days, green is out (mostly) for flooring options. When I began a search for green flooring I was positive there would be ZERO findings. To my delight and surprise, I did find a few beauties! There is one in particular here that I’m crushing on. Can you guess which one?

Sláinte

“Cheers” in Irish is sláinte which is pronounced a bit like “slawn-che”. Sláinte means “health”, and if you’re feeling brave, you can say sláinte is táinte (“slawn-che iss toin-che”), meaning “health and wealth”.
