St. Patrick’s Day Food For Your Family

Green Eggs and Ham is not the only meal that includes the color mainly known for mold, grass, and money. Items such as pancakes, cupcakes, bread, soup, and drinks of every kind can be green quicker than you can say “Catch me lucky charms, they’re magically delicious!”

Traditional St.Patrick's Day Meal of Cabbage, Bacon and Potato

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the saint’s religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. This day has been celebrated as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the season of Lent, Irish families would conventionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. When prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived, people would dance, drink and feast.

Traditionally, the St. Patrick’s day meal would be bacon and cabbage. Here is a great recipe from Epicurious.com.

If you aren’t sure you want to go to all that effort, consider turning your family’s favorite food green for a fun family celebration:

– French Toast
– Milk and Cereal
– Pasta
– Ice Cream
– Juice & much more

The easiest way to change your favorite foods green is to buy food coloring. With a couple of drops of green magic, your families’ favorite foods will be St. Patrick’s Day approved. Food coloring can be purchased at most grocery stores and special recipes can easily be found many places online. To make the day even more exciting, ask for help making these special items from you husband, kids, or you can do these activities on your own. Don’t limit your self to normal food on this day. Celebrate and enjoy with treats but don’t forget to go green!
