The Green Dinner

We had our St. Patrick's Day dinner or our Green Dinner on Sunday.  It was just me and my girls and my sister's family.  With my mom out of the country the Green Dinner just isn't the same.  This is the 3rd year without her.  Seriously Mom, when are you coming home?  I am just awaiting another extension.

Anyways, onto the food since that is the best part.

The feast!

Pot of Gold Mac & Cheese

 Rainbow on a Stick

 The Green Drink. Yum!

And a party isn't a party without streamers.

The reason that I love St. Patrick's Day the most is because for us it is centered around food and family.  What else do you need?

I forgot about my love for steamed cabbage!  It is the cheapest thing to make and healthy too.  Well, I add butter and salt to my cabbage so maybe not super healthy but super good.
This is the only time I really eat corned beef but I love it!

The kids followed a golden trail to find a pot of gold (actually pot of Rolos which to them is better than gold.) and then went on a hunt for leprechaun gold.

It was a fun night.

Hope you all had a fun St. Patrick's Day too.

Preview of what's to come:  While at my sister's I got some pictures of her actual ribbon "drawer" along with her amazing craft room.  As soon as I get everything together you will be amazed too.
