St. Patrick's Day

On St. Patrick's Day, the Leprechaun came to visit our house by leaving his usual trail of pennies from the side of the bed to some location. Bennett loved picking up the pennies!
 It lead the boys to the living room where they found their "pot of gold" of green treasure!
Aaron found mint Oreos, a green drink, green gum and green Pringles. Bennett on the other hand found some green zucchini and some green broccoli. Don't be fooled, he was thrilled! He loves that stuff!
 But he also love sharing Oreos with Dad.
We had a green dinner that night and though it wasn't completely green or used any food coloring, we still loved it.
We made homemade salsa and cilantro tomatillo ranch dressing.
And then we had green cilantro lime rice, with green lettuce and had homemade Cafe Rio salads. So yummy! Love this new tradition!
For dessert we had a yummy pistachio cake that is a recipe Aaron's family makes and he has been wanting for a while! It was so yummy!
We had a great day and thankfully no one got pinched! ;)

  1. You are such a fun Mom/wife! I love the penny idea. Bennet really looks like he will take a bite of that zucchini! So cute.
