Its been quite a break from this here blog o’mine. But that’s ok. Instead of wallowing in my own self mommy pity, I have enjoyed my family time, for I know it is a precious time that will soon be a distant memory as soon as *pilot season* starts.
Luckily for us, St. Patricks Day was on the calendar, so the kids and I had a fun time celebrating our Irish Leprechan day. We started by eating a big bowl of Lucky Charms or Fruit Loops. Both good sugary-and-delicious-red-dye-40-once-a-year-choices. Next up was a fun rainbow craft where the kids glued the left over Fruit Loops in the right order and cotton balls on the clouds, which of course I forgot to take a picture of. Whoops.
Then I had to make my usual green eggs, but this time I decided to make them IN toast, which the kids really enjoyed.
Since green food was the agenda of the day, we decided to make Mint Chocolate Chip cookies. And my oh my were they a hit!
This was my first time making them and I think this might become a new tradition I brought them to our bible study group that met that night and they were happily enjoyed by all the big kids at heart as well.
Considering we don’t usually eat dinner with the kids tuesday nights due to our bible study group, I had our semi traditional Irish feast later on the week. Nobody was the wiser. We ate overly salted corned beef from good ole Costco and steamed cabbage seasoned with butter and salt. I was shocked when even sweet Little Rascal had his fair share. All in all, we had such fun with one of my favorite holidays.
