Me: "I'm going to start dinner in a little while."
Tuck: "Can I help you, Mama?"
Me: "Thanks, but there's nothing really to help with, Tuck. I fill a pot with water and then boil the heck out of the meat and vegetables."
Tuck: "This is going to be a great dinner, then. You know why?"
Me: "Why?"
Tuck: "Because you can't burn water, Mama!"

With the luck of the Irish, I'm hoping that I don't reduce the boiled dinner to ashes. In the meantime, while we are waiting for it to bubble into delectable mushiness, I'll share a few of our stories from our podcast, Night Light Stories. Each of them have a leprechaun character or are related to St. Patrick's Day in some way. 

From our house to yours, we hope you enjoy (and not burn) 
whatever festive meal you make today!
