We’ve been squeezing in as many of our favorite green eats and treats as possible this week, and will continue to do so straight through the weekend. Here’s what’s on the menu…
Corned beef sammies are a crowd favorite for the whole family. We just get our corned beef sliced for the deli (Daddy-O makes his own), some swiss cheese and a loaf of rye bread and it makes for an easy and hearty meal.
These creme de menthe brownies are a St. Patrick’s Day staple. They are truly amazing and no store bought look alike tastes anywhere near as good.
I tried Shepherd’s Pie for the first time last year when teaching John’s class about our Irish heritage. The class gobbled it up and then I made it again at home the same week. This is on our Friday night menu this year.
These decadent Black and Tan Brownies are another favorite, especially when served along side my hearty Guinness beef stew with a side of Irish Soda Bread (in store at Trader Joe’s and Fresh Market now!).
With the arctic air this week, Shamrock hot chocolate has been a welcome after school warm up! These are so cute and easy to make for many holidays. I love to serve them with a box of limited edition Lucky Charms with green clovers!
What are your favorite eats this week? I’m taking the littles to an after school St. Paddy’s Day party Friday and plan to bring a veggie tray that looks like the Irish flag with carrots, broccoli and cauliflower and a green goddess dip. (Who is this girl all of a sudden taking veggies to a party?!)
