March Madness Day 15: Dinner with the Berrys

So, some of you may or may not know, my classmate Darcy has been married to her Irish husband (like for real Irish, not just my great great great great grandparents were Irish but straight off the boat Irish) for almost 4 years now.

When Darcy returned my notes that she had borrowed to me, she invited Cassie and I over for corn beef and cabbage with mashed potatoes.

....first of all it was DELICIOUS! Darcy made it from scratch!
...second we had a wonderful time learning all about Irish superstitions and traditions

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day :)

Here is what we learned:

  1. You cannot hang masks on the wall because ghosts will hide inside the masks and remain in your home
  2. You cannot open your windows when it is foggy outside or the "coachman on a horse drawn carriage  that collects people for death will be able to enter your home (her said the name but I cannot remember it...and google is not helping me out). 
  3. Spiders are good luck and prosperity inside your house, therefore you cannot kill them
  4. Anything with iron is good for you
  5. Guinness has iron, therefore it is fine to drink it while pregnant (apparently)
Overall it was a wonderful, unplanned evening full of laughter, good friends and plenty of laughter
