Personal Notes:
This recipe was submitted by David's best friend's Mother and our next door neightbor/friend. When Dave was a little boy he loved Ann's Mother (considered her Grandmother Kennedy) and when she went to Ireland, Dave asked her to bring him back an Irish girl. Well, I guess he did it on his own!!
