You Can Call Me Lucky

In Cooking & Crafting, Motherhood, Parenting by Jen33 Comments

Last night I happily pulled out my lucky four leaf clover socks from the back of the drawer, because now that Valentine’s Day is over and done (whew) I am ready for St Patrick’s Day! I love this holiday, because A) I am actually Irish. I even have a green eyed daughter. B) The food is amaze-balls!

So let’s kick off this celebration of all things Irish here on JENerally Informed with a new printable. Tah-dah!

March Printable!

Feel free to print, pin and use this printable for any March related plans you have. In fact I would love it if you pinned it. Print your copy by clicking HERE.

And now lets talk about the food.

If you have never cooked corned beef and cabbage before, make some. Do it now. I make a crock pot of corned beef up every single year and because I would rather eat mine than take pictures of it here is a recipe that is exactly similar to the one I make.

The very best recipe for corned beef and hash!

Or check out this corned beef hash breakfast nachos recipe from my friend Tamara Like Camera!

I really, really love being an Irish, Mexican American. 

Now let’s talk about those dang little Leprechauns….

Basically, they have been successfully avoiding me my whole life and I really feel like I could do lots of great things for the world with a pot of gold. Your evasion is not cool guys.


If you want this to be the year when you finally catch one of the “wee little folk”, then check out these adorable Leprechaun trap ideas from POPSUGAR.

And lastly, I would like to add a warning to anyone who tries to pinch me on March 17th.

Bring it. I’m ready.




Go ahead and share this post, you know you want to!


  1. Hah! Love your final statement. That’s usually what I’m thinking when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day. You better NOT pinch me.

    That’s cool you are actually Irish though! Makes the holiday much more exciting, I would imagine. Around me, we just get a lot of green beer.

  2. I love St. Patrick’s Day and being part Irish I love that my family has always celebrated. Also, my husband is all Irish and my in-laws actually go all out for this day, so definitely married into the right family for this one. Totally going to print out your printable, too. Thanks Jen :)

  3. I’m not Irish but it’s Scarlet’s favorite holiday! And she wants the limited edition clovers-only Lucky Charms box. Also, corned beef and cabbage. Also, nearly spring. Also, the socks are something I use year-round for scary things – like flying and photo shoots.
    Thank you so much for the shout-out! Makes me happy! I hope people have great breakfast nachos.

      Who doesn’t want those Lucky Charms?! I just saw someone turn them into this delish pudding thing! I don’t think they cook much with Lucky Charms in Ireland, but I am game to try it :)

      I saw an article last week that wearing bold and mismatched socks means that you are smart. Since it is almost 85 degrees here (already) I have now returned to my traditional sandal footwear. Now would wearing my socks with sandals make me smart or just look stupid? Decisions, decisions….

  4. I love St. Patrick’s day too. I love, love, love corned beef and cabbage too. We’re having that at one of our favorite yacht clubs this year. Can’t wait and hubby makes some great corned beef and cabbage too.

    Have a fabulous day Jen. ☺

  5. So cute! I have always thought it would be fun to make some Irish Soda bread, but I never do. Maybe this is the year!

      I have tried to make it and mine is lumpy and dry. Or is that how it usually is? I don’t know, but my failures at making it previously still keep me away, but the corned beef is so yummy that I keep coming back for more every year!

      I think everyone should be an honorary Irish clan member on St Patrick’s Day, it makes it all so much more fun!! So you can be a part of mine :)

      Have a great one!

  6. Hi Jen, now that’s where you get your humour from! I must check out Tamara’s breakfast Nachos, it looks interesting and I could see myself getting caught in the Leprechaun trap long before any Leprechauns actually show up!

    1. Hey maybe we are cousins! My kids have recently found this relative finder site and they love finding out all the people we are related to like the President, some outlaws and Amelia Earhart.

      Glad you liked the printable!
