Top O The Evenin' To Ye, Lassies!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not feeling well tonight (recovering from the altitude/weather change from GA to NC again... my body just doesn't like change), so I have to make this a quick post. I wanted to share our festive dinner... take note - the pics aren't very good, but they were quick and the kids were hungry!

My family isn't big on the whole "corned beef & cabbage tradition" to celebrate St. Patty's Day, so we improvised and had steak, smashed potatoes, broccolli & cheese, cottage cheese, applesauce and milk...with a little green food coloring to boot!
If they hadn't seen me add the green food coloring, my children wouldn't have had anything to do with eating all the Green Goodies I had made for them.
Turns out they are good sports and they had just as much fun eating the green stuff as I had had making it green!
My hubby is on the Atkins diet again, so he didn't have all the green goodies that the rest of us enjoyed, but he entertained the idea and encouraged the rest of us to enjoy! I hope you had a wonderful St. Patty's Day & wish you the best of luck with your year to come!
Another Random Fact About Me:
I got married the DAY AFTER I graduated from High School... we'll be celebrating 9 married years in June.
Thanks for peeking in... I'll be clickin' my heals all the way to the bed tonight (leprechaun style)! I'm off to dreamland!

That's funny! You always said green is your favorite color! Is that the same headband Kailynn had on yesterday morning? It was so good so see everyone - thank you for coming!
