Now What Color?

Yesterday was full of green! We started off the morning eating green eggs. Of course we had to read the book Green Eggs and Ham after breakfast! Brodie wasn't sure what he thought of the colored eggs but then decided they tasted ok.It was another beautiful day so after breakfast we headed to the Zoo! We had a really good time there. We ate lunch there on a bench watching the monkeys. After the Zoo we headed home and the little boys rested for a bit. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon outside playing.For dinner I made some Irish Stew. The younger 3 kids weren't fans, but the older 3 thought it was pretty good. I also made some Irish Soda bread and green lemonade. We ended the night with green rice krispie bars. It was a very Happy St. Patrick's Day at our house. Hope yours was just as enjoyable!

I made green eggs last year for my oldest and now he requests them all the time.

This post makes me want to go to the zoo.

I didn't even think of green rice krispie treats. Those look good!

I love your St. Patrick's Day menu! The green rice krispie bars are especially ingenious. I'll have to remember to try that one next year :)

Your St. Patrick's Day menu sounds wonderful! I'm really curious about your Irish stew recipe -- what was it? I've been going to try one and haven't done it yet.

We had our usual corned beef and cabbage and carrots and potatoes. I tried a couple of soda breads, but wasn't totally happy with the results. I think I'm on a quest for the perfect Irish soda bread now!

Love, Mom

I made 2 different kinds of soda bread. We liked both of them, but they are one day breads. They get pretty dry after the first day.

My stew recipe you can find here:
