Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! ….and book bargains galore. Roxanne Rustand
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Do you celebrate the day in a way special for your family? Parades, a party, or just trying to remember to wear something green? It’s just the two of us at home now, and we aren’t into any festivities, but I do make corned beef with cabbage, red potatoes, onions, and lots of carrots, plus Irish Soda bread. And if grandkids are here, rolled-out cookies with lots of sparkling sugars (mostly green.) Now, need to find shamrock cookie cutters!
FINAL PURSUIT, the third inspirational romantic suspense in my MONTANA SECRETS series, is now up for sale. Free to those who use Kindle Unlimited, or on sale for just $3.99. CLICK HERE for more info, or to buy!
A quick blurb: A violent criminal has been terrorizing her small Montana mountain town. Deputy Megan Peters is working hard to identify him and bring him to justice…but now he has turned his sights on her. Could he be Scott Anders, the only newcomer in town? Should she believe her instincts…or follow her heart?
And, just in case you’d like a bit of early Christmas spirit (or a story set in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day) here is AN IRISH CHRISTMAS BLESSING. CLICK HERE to learn more, or to buy for only 99 cents!
A quick blurb: Eve goes to Ireland for the Christmas season to help an old friend run her Shamrocks & Shivers Antiquarian Book Shoppe. She figures the two months will be a dream come true. A quaint little village, with centuries-old buildings made of stone. Narrow winding lanes. Picturesque. What’s not to love?
But then her friend has been called away for an extended family emergency before Eve gets off her plane, and now she has to sort out a stranger screaming upstairs, a crazy dog, a mouthy parrot, AND an utterly handsome man with a broken ankle who has taken up residence on the main floor of the shop….

HERE’S A SUPER EASY, FAMILY FAVORITE RECIPE!
Even the left-overs are good, whether hot or cold. I’ve been making this for over ten years and I don’t remember the source, but do know that I made a number of adjustments to the original. Now that I’m thinking about it, this will be our supper for tonight!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts moderately flattened to uniform thickness (not too thin)
Peanut oil for the electric skillet
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan (not the dry kind in a shaker can)
1/2 cup flour
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1. Combine dry ingredients in a shallow dish
2. Combine eggs and milk in a separate shallow dish.
3. Dip chicken thoroughly in the egg mixture.
4. Roll pieces in the dry mixture.
5. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.
6. Gently lay pieces on a rack for 10 minutes, for the coating to “set.”
7. Heat peanut oil to moderate high temp in an electric frying pan, cook until chicken is golden on both sides, and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees.

SWEET SUMMER DAYS
LUCK OF THE IRISH—SUPER MARCH MYSTERY SALE
All my best to you,
Holiday themed books seem to be the right choice to immerse yourself in the spirit of the holiday. No special foods for Easter – unless you count Hot Cross Buns.
I do like to read holiday books because they put me in the mood for that holiday. We always have ham for Easter.
I enjoy reading holiday books all year long. We usually have ham and mashed potatoes for Easter dinner. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
I do enjoy holiday themed books… year round I will read whichever I am in the mood for.
Yes I do enjoy holiday themed books because I love to read! My daughter always fixes Ham on Easter dinner with mashed potatoes ,gravy, green beans, and dinner rolls, and a pie, and cake!
