Hello my friends,
ten or so years ago I decided that I would downsize a little and did away with my St. Patty's Day décor.
It doesn't stop me from decorating with a little bit of green for the month of March.
I gathered some of my favorite greens for a spring garden themed vignette.
The two larger plates were recently gifted to me by a dear friend. The other items I picked up at yard and estate sales,
and thrift shops.
This morning I texted the kids wondering if anyone was up for a 'Green' dinner. A couple of the kids too. As luck would have it they already had their meals planned. I just baked bread, made fresh limes to drink and green beans almondine.
They did all the rest.
Our daughter, Karrah had put corned beef in the crock pot before going to work this morning. Later she added carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. YUM! So delicious!
Samantha made the traditional Colcannon Irish mashed potatoes.
Buttery and so delish!
I set a simple table with my green and white striped plates atop cabbage placemats.
I missed getting a photo of the bread I baked today, but this is photo is of my 1st attempt with my sour dough starter. Today's bread was even more yummy than the first. I added dried herbs and sunflower seeds to the round artisan loaf.
The fresh lime sodas were served in pint jars.
Karrah made cupcakes and Sam made Irish shortbread cookies.
I feel so lucky to have such a fun and loving family!
May the luck of the Irish be with you today and every day!
I have to share this cute thing my cousins daughter
