St. Patricks Day Food

Here is what we are planning for food on St. Patrick’s Day:

* Rainbow cupcakes

Make a white cake according to the box.  Separate the batter into 6 equal bowls. Make each bowl a different color with food coloring, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet one to each bowl.  Place spoonfuls of batter into the cupcake liner and fill 1/2 full.  Bake and frost!

* Shamrock Shakes

2 cups vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup milk

1/4 t mint extract

8 drops green food coloring

* Green Food: add food coloring to cereal milk, pancakes, eggs, mashed potatoes, etc.

Isaiah told me at dinner, he thought he didn't like green milk as much as white...hmmm

* For adults: Bailey’s Cake.  This is fabulous! I omit the nuts.
