St. Patricks Day Memorable Meals  
By Dian Thomas

To me the fun thing that you do with your family for the holidays adds the extra spice to life. Holidays are great times to turn from the usual to create memories with your family that will last forever. St Patrick's Day is like no other holiday. It's all about being green.

Here are just a few ways that you can add fun to that day that is coming up next week.

Magic Green Milk

Pour 2 to 3 drops of green food coloring in clear milk glasses. When the children come into eat, pour milk in the glasses. The milk will swirl green like magic.

Shamrock Pancakes

Add green food coloring to your pancake batter and cook in the shape of shamrocks.

Green Potatoes

Blend green food coloring with the milk for mashed potatoes.

Shamrock Pizza

Shape a shamrock on a large pizza pan or baking sheet with three circular pizzas and one thin, rectangular one for the stem. Mix equal amounts of green food coloring and water and brush on outer edges of crust. Shake grated cheese with remaining food-coloring mixture in a closed plastic bag or container. Top with family favorites (each leaf can be different) and bake as usual.

Green Fruits and Veggies

There are lots of green fruits and vegetables you can add to your green dinner table. Look around the grocery store for green fruits, including apples, kiwi, green grapes, honeydew melon, Bartlett pears, and limes. Green veggies are plentiful, to. You can pick from asparagus, avocados, green beans, lima beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, collards greens, cucumbers, kale, lettuce, okra, green olives, green onions, green peppers, parsley, peas, spinach, Swiss chard, and zucchini. You could also serve spinach dip or spinach pasta with green pesto. Open your mind and turn you imagination loose as you stroll the aisles in preparation for you green St. Patrick's Day meals.
