Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hi gang!  Today is one of my favorite childhood events.  St. Patty's day!  I always made sure I had a very small amount of green on me so I would be "mistakenly"  pinched for not wearing green.  I would then take my rightful pinches on the poor soul who pinched me.

You know the drill...I think everyone does the same thing around 3rd - 6th grade.

Anywho, enjoy these green photos to celebrate the occasion.

Broccoli.  Need I say more?  Sometimes I throw some of this stuff in my green smoothie.  Seriously.
Let me introduce you to the Cotton Candy Lantern from Barbocoa. You heard me right.  It is cotton candy spun around a little tea light sized brownie candle.  My daughter and I and some friends got it after a  David Archuleta concert.  It is delish.  See that chocolate swirl on the plate?  You take a piece of cotton candy and dip it in the chocolate and place it on your tongue.  Seriously so good.  Speaking of good; a David Archuleta concert.

Do you remember this pie?  It is a Chocolate Chip Mint Oreo Ice cream Pie.  It is perfect to serve for a St. Patty's dessert (or any other time).  As you can tell, I couldn't wait for this piece to set up. Just make an Oreo Pie crust with 16 crushed Oreos and 2 Tbs. melted butter, mix together and press into your pie plate.  Let set in freezer for an hour or so.  Then, scoop in your favorite ice cream (or two). Ideally, Let ice cream set for one to two hours and serve.  I like to drizzle a little chocolate sauce before serving.  Yum.

My companion every morning.  The infamous green smoothie with chocolate coin chasers (wink).

I just load my Blendtech with any fruit or vegetable I have on hand and blend it up with a little agave and chia seeds.  De-lish!

I hope you have a great St. Patty's day.  And don't forget to wear green! xoxo
