We're not Irish, but we like any excuse to celebrate a holiday (and my family looks forward to anything that offers a break in the monotonous routine of cold cereal for breakfast). My specialty (my only breakfast specialty)...food-colored, shaped pancakes. I had to use coconut flavoring for the syrup so that it would lend itself more easily to the green hues. As for dinner, we have long abandoned the tradition of tinting stroganoff and noodles green (to this day, Jason still cannot eat stroganoff) and have opted for a more palatable "Pot O' Gold Soup." Hmm...maybe I enjoy holidays so much because they all seem to center around food!
Spencer and Audrey did marble painting for preschool using paints in varying shades of green. Brevin graphed Lucky Charms and constructed a leprechaun hat complete with blazing orange, construction paper hair. Jason even wore an obligatory mint-green shirt to work. Yes, it seems that going green is "all the rage" these days!
