St.Paddy's Day Collage

Are you wearing your green today?

I hope you’re way cooler than I am and have some actual St. Patrick’s Day plans for the weekend.  Yeah, our plans include watching basketball (fun) and yardwork (not so fun).  We’re living the exciting life around here!  Whether St. Patrick’s Day is your cup of tea or not, I never turn down fun foods or drinks.  Here’s my round-up, if you need some last minute ideas:

  1. The Midori Sour, my all-time favorite drink from my college days.  Ahhhhhhh, sweet memories.
  2. Coconut Irish Cream Truffles are my new best friend.  I can’t tell you how many of these I’ve eaten in the last week.
  3. Mint Brownie Grasshopper Pie in a Jar.  It’s pie.  In a jar.  Made from a brownie mix and cool-whip.  Sooooo easy.
  4. The Shamrock-tini takes only two ingredients, perfect for those situation where complicated drink mixing might just be…well, too complicated.

And here are some other great things I’ve spotted from some of my fave foodie friends–it’s not too late to give some of these a try:

Irish Cream Coffee Cupcakes from The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen

 Triple-Treat Grasshopper Mint Brownies from The Domestic Rebel


Fudge Mint Popcorn from Inside BruCrew Life

Bailey’s Pudding Shots from Crazy for Crust

Thin Mint Diet Coke Single Serve Cake from Something Swanky

Shamrock Shakes from Sugarcrafter

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Irish Whisky Frosting from The Comfort of Cooking

Have a wonderful Saturday!
