Top o' the morning to ya! The wearing of the green, banishing of snakes, picking out your lucky four leaf clovers. I'll be wearing some green, usually a pair of shamrock earrings that I got in the 80s when I was a teacher in Columbia. The kids love that stuff.
Today I am participating in a lovely blog hop, where you visit various blogs on a similar theme. Our hostess is Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen blog. Head over there and you will see a lot of fun posts on St. Patrick's day, early enough that you still have time to try a craft, or make a meal, or make this delicious Shamrock Shake!
This delightful treat will be so tasty on St. Patrick's Day and won't ruin your healthy eating plan. All you do is combine 1 c of almond milk (1 point) with 2 T sugar free, fat free pudding mix (1), 1 t vanilla, 2 T fat free cool whip (1) and ice, about 8 regular sized cubes. Add a few drops of green food coloring and a smidgen of mint (NOT peppermint) extract. Blend together and pour into a mug. I usually set the mug into the freezer for 10 minutes and then enjoy!
Do you do a lot of decorating at home with St. Patrick's Day? I usually have a decoration on the front door and do a little something with the fireplace mantel and I have a really cute sequined shamrock box that sits on the end table. That's usually all I do because the next holiday is EASTER and I really like to decorate for Easter!!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
