I like doing Holiday dinners for my family just to make things a little more fun and breaking up the meal monotony. For St. Patrick’s Day, I always do some kind of a “green” dinner. I have done the traditional corned beef and cabbage. The kids don’t like it too well, but I think it’s pretty good if you cook it right. Here are some “green” things I do to go along with it:
Green Veggie Tray
Green kool-aid OR
Green sherbet with Sprite
Last year I did a “lite” dinner because we didn’t want the corned beef and cabbage thing. So here is what I did:
This included Zucchini Bisque Soup (it’s YUMMY!), Green Salad, Green Veggie Tray,
Shamrock Corned Beef Sandwiches (recipe to follow) and
It was a fun, lite meal that we could all enjoy!
If you are looking for cute breakfast ideas, I found these two:

And THIS one. Aren’t they darling? I may try one of these this year. I really like the rainbow fruit idea! Usually it is best for me to do a dinner, though, so I have a little more time to prepare it.
Here is the recipe for the cute Shamrock Corned Beef Sandwiches:
The first thing you need to do is to remember to order green bread from your grocery store bakery the day before you make them. Then you can pick up your fresh green bread on St. Patty’s Day.
First, put your softened cream cheese and some mayo into a bowl with about 1-2 teaspoons of grated onion. I can’t remember if I put any other seasonings in here. I think the corned beef is quite salty, so I didn’t. But if you taste it and it seems a little bland, then add a little bit of seasoned salt to it.
Have a great St. Patty’s Day dinner!
