Today I've got Bible study and trip to the grocery store. I've got lots to buy as it is my monthly "stock up" trip. I've got a few extra things on my list, thanks to Pinterest.
I love looking on Pinterest for food ideas for holidays. St. Patrick's Day is no different. I think I'll make the green treats above, only try cake balls instead of the truffle recipe that was provided. Do you know I've never made cake balls?! I bought some green candy melts and some white almond bark. I think the girls could have fun making them.

I am going to make green pancakes like the above for breakfast. I am also going to make cupcakes. Although, I may try white cupcakes so as not to over do it on the green dye :) Did I tell you I finally broke down and purchased some cake decorating tips? I am excited to try them, although a tad nervous that my cupcakes will look um...not like the picture. I don't think the family will mind if I practice on them. For dinner I'm planning on making smokey cheese & potato soup I found in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. They made toast croutons from a shamrock cookie cutter and spread them with pesto and floated them atop the soup. Very pretty. I guess I kind of get into holiday themed foods.
I just like to take every opportunity to celebrate!
