No, I did not host a potluck brunch for a group of leprechauns yesterday, but I did for some of my very favorite people.
For years I have been waking up at the crack of dawn to go to St Patrick’s Day parades and later pushing my way through crowded, noisy bars filled with festive (read annoying) drunkards. It was fun and all in my 20s, but at 32 I have officially had enough of it!
All I ever REALLY wanted to do is celebrate the day with food, drink and friends – and that is exactly what I did this year!
Everyone had such a joyous time that they requested it become an annual event – sounds like a perfect plan to me.
Everyone had to bring something to share that involved at least one green ingredient.
- SHAMROCK GREEN MIMOSAS!
- Mushroom & Scallion Breakfast Strata
- Key Lime Pie Cups
- Ranch Guacamole with Green Guacamole Chips
- Waldorf Salad
- Pistachio Ambrosia Salad
- Corned Beef & Cabbage
- Chocolate Guinness Cookies
What St Paddy’s Day treat did you enjoy this weekend that involved green ingredients?
Maybe I’ll add it to my list for next year!
