With March, came a beginning and an end. I completed my student teaching experience. The students created a scrapbook for me, and wrote poems. It was a time of laughing. Of crying. Of cheering them on, and letting them go.
It also marked the beginning. A break from teaching. A chance to reevaluate where I am and where I want to go. And it involved a vacation in Central Oregon.
Since March was busy, I was also late in enjoying the traditional Irish festivities during St. Patrick’s day. Thankfully, I still got to enjoy them, by making a traditional Irish Colcannon. Complete with barbequed pork loin, and carrots.
William was my master barbeque man.
The following morning, we used the leftovers to make fried-colcannon patties. Which turned out to be nearly as delicious as the original from the evening before.
All in all. This meal was worth the wait.
