St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl

Yum
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!

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!!
