Let it snow. Let it snow. Let it snow and then some – Political Stew – Irish Stew Recipe

Downtown Minneapolis MN on Sunday

This was the beginning of snow season, which will continue on and off throughout the week. So far we have had 21 plus inches of snow this week.

You may note the bicyclist in the first photo. We are not wimps here.

Yesterday Senator Amy Klobuchar held a rally to announce her plan to join the crowd vying for the post of President of the U S of A in the snow, with blustery wind. Lots of peeps showed up in support. I caught the event on Facebook.

Political stew is my way of describing all the varied elements that the candidates bring to the party. It is a metaphor for all the issues that the candidates claim as issues to address in their platform to run for President. What do you want to see in the next President?

Senator Klobuchar is getting flack from comments from a former staff person (complaints) about her treatment of her staff. Yeah. She’s a tough boss.

Tough enough for the biggest position in the world? You betcha!  There are many candidates on the Democrats list. It’s a big gamble.

What ever happens, this is the weathering of Amy Klobuchar.  If you are not into politics in America, then you can skip this. She’s a moderate, who works to get things done. I have done the job “without fear or favor”.  Says Senator Klobuchar.

While I am impressed with the other candidates, I am looking into all the candidates records and experience.  Time will tell where the cards fall.

Meanwhile, here’s an Irish Stew recipe , which I posted in the second year of my food blog for St Patrick’s Day.

Irish Stew – It Is Still Winter in The Northland

Years ago, I watched a friend make Irish stew with beef. For my stew I bought lamb. Lamb is hard to find in the grocery store. Around St. Paddy’s Day I looked for some to make a ‘bit o’ stew’.

And so it goes…keep the watch fires burning.

This is a little tribute to Mom who passed away on this day some years ago. A beautiful Irish colleen, who delighted the world with her charm and warmth. A fighter for causes and politics in her time. She was a woman ahead of her time, who was full of courage.

    I think you have had enough snow….time to move toward spring now! We’ll be watching your Senator too….husband likes her, I hadn’t heard of her. A woman President, I hope I see it in my lifetime! Hugs about your mom too…..

    wow! look at all that snow! I can’t believe someone was bicycling in it. Isn’t it slippery? Moderate is a good stance I think because it’s important to see all sides before deciding something big and I think they try to do that.
