Happy St. Patrick's Day Parade!

You'll have to head downtown early if you want to see the Plumber's Union dye the Chicago River green for St. Patrick's Day. That takes place at 10:45 am and the location has been moved this year. Head to the Columbus Drive bridge or upper or lower Wacker between Columbus and Lake Shore Drive. The Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade starts at noon, and the map of the route is at the left. The parade will also be carried on WGN Channel 9 and WLS Channel 7.

Last year I made some Irish soda bread using this recipe. I didn't use any caraway seeds though, and used a vinegar and milk substitute in place of the buttermilk. Since everyone loved it, I might make some more this year.

While St. Patrick's Day isn't until Tuesday, today is a great day to begin the celebration!
