My Irish wish to you...(& GIVEAWAY- last day)

on this, St. Patrick's Day...
First, I will say - I'm not Irish...
Second, I don't drink Green anything! :)
Third, I still wish you the luck of the Irish Saint Patrick!
And lastly,
may you have
the time and luxury today
to sit upon a bouquet of green shamrocks and enjoy life...
Say what???!???
But I do like the vintage card picture,
 and, oh, to have the leisure time to just sit around...

even if you don't have the time
to just sit around in a bouquet of shamrocks,

I do have a recipe to share with you...
this WAS a hot sandwich on the German side of the family...
I made it a dip recipe
when we were invited to an Irish family's St. Patrick's day gathering.
It's quick and easy, and besides that,
it's now a favorite of many and is always,

here's my contribution to the little neighborhood
St. Patrick's day gathering:

Hot Reuben Dip

8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream or Woeber's sandwich dressing
1/2 pound corned beef, thinly sliced & chopped
16 oz. sauerkraut with juice
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (1/2 pound)
1 cup shredded marble cheese (1/2 pound)

Mix all together in a small fondue or crock pot and heat thoroughly, stirring often.  Keep warm and serve with rye bread, garlic bagel chips or tortilla chips. 

It is delicious!!!
 And don't wrinkle up your nose
because there is 'kraut in there. 
(yes, the 'kraut is the German in me coming out!)
After it's all cooked up and hot and juicy,
you don't even know the 'kraut is there--promise!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you from this English/German gal.

I think I'll stitch a little something green today!
How about you?  A little green stitching for you, too?
