Guyz, are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day, or are you READY for St. Patrick’s Day?!
…great me either.
Seeing as I’m not much a beer fan anyway, SPD doesn’t really do much for me….other than da FOOD.
But come on, are you really that surprised?
Maybe I’m jumping the gun a little early, but I LOVE corned beef and cabbage. Growing up, my mom would make a boiled dinner every year, full of carrots, cabbage, taters, and salty McSalterson corned beef.
Drinking Guinness and wearing green like the straight up quarter Irish gal I am. Since everyone is at least 50% more Irish on St. Paddy’s Day, that makes me pretty much straight outta Dublin.
Call it the luck o’ the Irish in me, but I actually managed to sneak something green into every meal without even trying! Thankfully only carrots change my skin color, or else I might start looking like I have a chronic case of dysentery with all the green I’ve been eating.
Let’s have a look-see shall we?
Breakfast Breakfast was a hugh-jass omelet packed with spinach, garlic, and salsa. Frozen spinach is where it’s at since I can pay less than a dollar for more spinach than I can even handle. Fresh spinach takes me like a day to eat.
I love how perfect collard leaves are for wrappage. I stuffed a few leaves full of my lemon pepper tuna mixed with chickpeas. It’s like a handheld salad! Snack
Oh my gosh I can’t get enough of these little oat bites that I made this weekend. Just enough sweetness, and of course a good dose of peanut butter to fill my daily quota.
Okay, so it’s not green, but I did say “meal” didn’t I? 😉
[ 2 cups oats + 1/2 cup peanut butter + 2 T flax + 1/2 cup sunflower seeds + 1/4 cup applesauce + 2 T maple syrup + cinnamon. Mix & roll into balls. makes about 14]
Dinner Dinner was the usual suspect, a salmon pattie with some more lemon pepper seasoning, on top of a bed of broccoli with some pasta sauce. Because that just makes everything better.
I did have some cabbage, carrots, and turnip for the traditional boiled dinner, which on top of Guinness made me a big old bloat baby.
But I just can’t resist! Until next year cabbage baby.
