Making the Most of St. Patrick´S Day

Yes, St. Patrick´s Day has come and gone but the meals kept coming.

St. Patrick´s Day landed nicely on a Friday this year. Both the kids were in school, which meant that my husband and I could enjoy a lunch out to ourselves. We decided we would head to O´Leary´s in Brookline, MA. We had been there several times previously. My favorite foods to order at O´Leary´s are the Guinness beef stew (the best meal on the menu!!) and the seafood stuffed mushrooms. Sadly, the seafood stuffed mushrooms are no longer on the menu. While those are my go to options, my husband and I opted to share a bowl of soup and fish and chips (Dublin style) since we were having another Irish inspired meal in the evening. As an aside, I love O´Leary´s and give it a four Om star rating.

Visiting the Maryland Athletic Club – Harbor East

My family recently returned from a wonderful visit to Maryland. We were blessed with sunny weather and 70 degrees during our stay. We had the good fortune of staying at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Baltimore, a suitable place for families in a prime location.
