In light of the COVID-19 precautions...

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand sanitizers that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Avoid close contact with anyone who appears sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then toss the tissue in the trash.

Talk to your doctor if you develop symptoms.

Stay home if you develop symptoms.

Avoid nonessential travel to areas with active COVID-19 outbreaks.

If you are caring for an older adult:

Know what medications are needed and help them have extra.

Monitor food and medical supplies and have a back-up plan.

Stock up on non-perishable food to reduce shopping trips.

If a loved one is in a care facility, monitor the situation, ask about the residents and know the protocol if there is an outbreak.

NY Daily News' Irish Soda Bread - Margaret Ullrich

Okay... tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day and you want something easy - and cheap - to mark the occasion.

Irish Soda Bread goes well with a corned beef and cabbage dinner, or anything else.  

And the cops will love you.  

Here's the Irish Soda Bread recipe that I clipped from The New York Daily News fifty years ago.  

                        Irish Soda Bread
grease cookie pan         
preheat oven to 375ยบ           
bake 45 min. + 10 min.

3 Cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Stir in 
   1/2 Cup currants or raisins 
1 1/3 Cups buttermilk

Knead on a floured board 
Shape into a round loaf
Place on greased pan
Cut a cross on top
Bake 45 minutes
Combine for glaze
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons hot water

Faith and beggorah!  'Tis a fine recipe.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
