Honour St. Patrick’s Day #stpatricksday #paddysday

Let’s commemorate the patron saint of Ireland 🇮🇪 with the festive green colour.  It doesn’t have to be with green beer!

I’m not Irish, nor do I have any Irish blood in my veins, but that doesn’t mean I can’t take part in the fun.  Did you know that the shamrock is a piece of clover that is used as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity (the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit)?IMG_0502While we can dive right into the festive fun with all the regular leprechaun and, luck of the Irish type of fun, I prefer to keep it subtle and simple.

I usually try to incorporate more green foods into the day’s meals like:

  • avocado
  • green grapes
  • lettuce
  • asparagus
  • brussels sprouts
  • broccoli
  • kiwi
  • green apple
  • pears
  • zucchini

… to name just a few!

Have fun with it!  You can always set up a buffet-style dinner and have everyone sample a bit from all the different dishes.  So go overboard with it.  You can be a wee bit Irish.
