So we go the silly route, with an all-green meal. If you're looking for something more appetizing than mashed potatoes tinted with green food coloring, these might help you out:
- Pasta with Popeye Sauce or Lemon Balm Pesto
- Rainbow Burritos
- Kale Soup
- Crunchy Marinated Green Beans
- Persimmon and Fennel Salad (substitute green apple slices, following a suggestion from reader Heather)
- Broccoli Salad
- Leprechaun Cookies
What do you serve for St. Patrick's Day? We'd love to hear about in the comments!
And finally, congratulations to Jennifer, the winner of our first giveaway. (Jennifer, I'll be sending you an e-mail.) She'll be getting a copy of our first recipe collection, just in time for spring. Thanks so much, everyone, for enthusiastic support. We're so glad you're enjoying the ideas we share here -- and sharing your own as well.
