In my monologue, I talked about Irish Soda Bread. If you want the recipe, here it is…and enjoy!
- Mama Morrissey’s Irish Soda Bread. Here’s the recipe
- 5 cups of flour
- 6 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups raisins
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 cups buttermilk
- dash of salt
- Mix all the ingredients well. Pour into a cast iron skillet. Start baking at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake for 1 hour.
- Cool for one hour before cutting into slices. It’s really good with melted butter.

My quotes for today were about spring cleaning and came from Gretchen Rubin of the Happiness Project and Singer Jill Scott.
“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Lower the bar.
Actually spending ten minutes clearing off one shelf is better than
fantasizing about spending a weekend cleaning out the basement.” – Gretchen Rubin
“I did an internship at the Arden theater company in Philly after dropping out of college.
I was earning $165 a week building sets and cleaning the toilets.
Cleaning toilets is a good way of getting in touch with your creativity.
That’s when you find out if you got anything going on in your head.” – Jill Scott
May you get ready creative this weekend but do it in small chunks 🙂 and thinking of VICTORY!
