Saint Patrick’s Day has always been a festive day in our family. Elaborate construction of leprechaun traps, scavenger hunts, shamrock kisses and a menu of green-colored food! Last year I served only green-colored food all day and my kids talked about it fondly all year long. Here are a few ideas to add to your Saint Patrick’s Day menu. Pick a few and make a whole day of green meals!
Green Fruit • Granny Smith Apples • Kiwi • Honeydew Melon • Green Grapes
Other Green Foods • Pea or Broccoli Soup • Pesto • Spinach Wraps • Spinach Pasta • Green Veggie Chips • Pistachio Pudding • Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Green Chocolate Chip Cookies • Made like you normally do but with green food coloring and mint chocolate chips • Make ice cream sandwiches with these and some mint chocolate chip ice cream!
Green Food Coloring • Add a little green food coloring to any soft, light colored food • Remember that one drop can go a looong way • Add it to… Milk Mashed potatoes Scrambled eggs Homemade bread or biscuits Apple Sauce Rice Crispie Bars White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese Ranch Dressing Vanilla Yogart Whipped Cream
How will you turn your Saint Patrick’s Day menu “green” this Thursday?
