Happy Birthday, Aubrey

Aubrey has managed to drag his birthday celebrations out as long as humanly possible. He had a week's worth of festivities and well wishes. Last night marked the end when I finally was able to make him his favorite Irishy birthday dish...Horseradish Shepherd's Pie. Oh yes, you've seen this recipe before. But THIS time, the flames on the pie were intentional.

We listened to very Irishy music and slammed pints of Guinness. It was all very authentic, mmm hmm, definitely. To round out Aub's current obsession with all things Irish, I gifted him a couple tickets to see the legendary Shane MacGowan of The Pogues in Kansas City on October 25th. Did you know Shane MacGowan once ate Volume 3 of a Beach Boys album because he thought he was convincing the Russian Ambassador of the worthlessness of American Imperialism. Huh? What? That's what I said. But, the dude's got something. He really does.

And you can find out what it is! If you can't get to Ireland for a pub crawl, this might be the next best thing. Tickets are still on sale here for their American Tour dates near you. If you go to the one in KC, look for the horribly out of place short mexican girl... that'll be me.

Happy Birthday, darling!
