I admit it. I am not one of those mom's who goes nuts over holidays. Sorry to disappoint. It's exhausting to try to add a holiday on top of what we're already doing. BUT deep inside (very, very, deep) I want to be one of those moms who is perfect and on top of things. Maybe someday. This year, as with every holiday that comes up, I had big ambitions to make this the biggest St. Patricks day ever! It wasn't. And there were so many ideas that I couldn't get to most of them. I did manage to tell them to throw on something green before we left for church, so. . . success!
But one thing that I did do, that I have been doing for many years is making a green dinner. In the past, I just put food coloring in whatever was on the menu. In recent years, though, I've tried to actually serve things that are green. This year's menu: zucchini quiche, broccoli, and green biscuits.
I realize it doesn't look super appetizing, but it's GREEN! and that' what I was going for.
Gasp! Iggy's not wearing green! I'll pinch those cheeks for us, shall I?
Happy St. Patricks Day!
