We celebrated yesterday with friends, family and neighbors! I think I tried every version of corned beef and cabbage known to man, and had my first Irish Car-bomb since college! This mama still has it (not really, not really at all!).
I made this easy, fairly healthy, and festive rainbow fruit platter! Within minutes it was attacked by all the kids, and I was happy to see they went for the fruit before the “clouds” and “gold”.
I used strawberries, Cuties, pineapple, kiwi and blackberries. You could definitely use cantaloupe, honeydew, green or purple grapes, blueberries, and mango as well. The marshmallows were clouds but whip cream could also be fun, and I used Rolos as the pot of gold!
I hope you all have a lucky and SAFE St. Patty’s Day weekend!
Tired of the same old boring salad for lunch? I was too, and wanted to try something a little different yesterday. I am constantly eating fruit throughout the day, but I’m not sure why I never thought to put some on my salad come lunch time! This was such a nice change to my usual all veggie salad and will become a regular addition to my weekly lunches! It was SO good I think I’ll be having it again today!
2 large strawberries sliced
1 small “cutie” tangerine peeled and divded
1/4 green apple cubed (sliced up the rest for the kids)
A tablespoon of raw sunflower seeds
A tablespoon of dried cranberries
2 pieces of Trader Joe’s grilled sliced chicken
Top with a little EVOO and balsamic vinegar
