Default St. David's Day

Today is St. David's Day, St. David being the patron saint of Wales. Since
my husband is Welsh, I thought that I would wish a happy St. David's day to
any expat
or pat Welsh. I only wish I had some nice leeks to make leek and potato
soup.
Next week when I go shopping perhaps.
Have a very nice day,
Sue

Default St. David's Day

Misremembered; I don't have the text in front of me. It's from a flyting about
Wales:

"Ten cooks," he said, "one wedding sees."
"Yes," came the answer, "each man brings his cheese."

My Welsh cookbook, which quotes this, has disappeared. :-(

Wow, I'll have to tell my mother-in-law. Her dad's name was David and
they're of Welsh descent. And now our family has another David, my
almost-6-month-old baby. In future years we will make some potato and leek
soup on this day!

Thanks for posting that.

Chris
