A strange blend of shyness of pride and conceit and a stubborn refusal to bow in defeat. She spoiling and ready to argue and fight, yet the smile of a child fills her soul with delight. Her eyes are the quickest to well up in tears and her strength is the strongest to banish your fears. Her hate is as fierce as her devotion is grand and there’s no middle ground on which she will stand. – unknown
This week at Herma’s we are enchanted by all the Easter Chocolate and cute cuddly rabbits and tulip girls that have just recently arrived. Not only are we excited about Easter, however…St. Patrick’s Day is only one week away. A great time to celebrate in hope for better days.

St. Patrick’s Day Food Ideas
These delicious, easy-to-prepare food ideas are not only special because they are traditionally enjoyed in Ireland, they are also perfect meals to enjoy during the last days of winter.
Transform the Village Grocer’s Beef, Beer & Onions by making it over into an Irish Stew for St. Patrick’s Day. Add Hak’s carrots and peas, also potatoes (boiled, sliced and quartered).
Bangers and Mash
Place the Village Grocer Mashed Potatoes on a plate with two Village Grocer Sausages on top. Pour a mixture of gravy and broth over the food and you have a delicious Bangers & Mash. Add a can of Jean Nicolas’ Peas for something green.
Tip: Herma likes to add olive oil and/or melted butter to her mashed potatoes for smoother consistency.
Enjoy each of these dishes with a nice tall glass of Guinness as you make a toast to the Emerald Isle.
