Feeling Lucky

We had a fabulous St. Patrick's Day yesterday, and I have the pictures to prove it! Well, the first half of that is true anyway. I did have the pictures to prove it, but somehow they got deleted since taking them yesterday. Thankfully, Derek took a couple of pictures on his phone, so we have a few photos to commemorate the day, although not as many as I'd hoped for!

We started off a "Top O' the Mornin" Breakfast inspired by this post over at eighteen25. They have some beautiful free printable tags for each breakfast item. Our "Top O' the Mornin" Breakfast Menu included:

St. Patty's Pancakes - green pancakes


Shamrock Syrup - maple syrup  

Chocolate O' Hersheys - chocolate syrup  

Lucky Charms - Lucky Charms cereal

Magic Clover Dust - green sprinkles

& Clouds in a Bottle - whipped cream (in a can)

Pot O' Gold Eggs - scrambled eggs

Rainbow Fruit Salad - colorful fruit salad

Pinch-proof Potion - green milk
We had leftover pizza for lunch (not very glamorous, but it's true). However, we did have a special leprechaun treat waiting when we got home from church. They left a card saying "THE LEPRECHAUNS WERE HERE!" and an assortment of green treats.

Emma enjoyed feeding her new green duck some leftover green pancakes (yes, we do try to eat up all of our leftovers!) while the pizza reheated in the oven.

For dinner we had some fun Shamrock Toasties! All you need is a green pepper, some cheese, and a few English muffins. 

To make one, slice a green pepper crosswise near the pointed end to get a small, three-lobed shamrock shape. (If your pepper has four lobes, you've got a lucky clover instead!) Cut another small slice for a stem.

Toast half an English muffin, then top it with a slice of cheese and the pepper shamrock. Place the muffin on a tray and broil it in the oven until the cheese is melted.

What new St. Patrick's Day treats did you make with your family this year?
