The kids loved the warm weather. They were able to play outside in their T-shirts.
This weekend wasn't just about enjoying the warm weather, though. It was all about good food as well. We had a potluck dinner with friends on Saturday and a traditional Corned Beef dinner with relatives tonight. Since Saturday was St. Patty's Day, I had to make this:
It's a Chocolate Guinness cake (Nigella Lawson's recipe) and it's incredible. It's my most requested cake.
It's a good thing I ran 10 miles today, because I certainly ate my share of good food this weekend.
Obviously, we had a great weekend. It was so warm and sunny and springlike. But, the most exciting part is that our entire week is going to be like this.
I know the wether will get cold again. We won't go as low as we were a few weeks ago, but we will probably drop back down to the 40's again for a few weeks. After all, it's not often that it gets this warm in March. So, we're going to enjoy it while it lasts. The week will be spent playing at the playground, taking walks, grilling, running outside, and soaking up the sun (with plenty of sunblock, of course). Even though it won't last, it will certainly help us get through the last few weeks of winter/spring weather. It's just nice to have temperatures in the double digits.
