This year's Saint Patrick's Day dinner was a tribute to green!
As I walked down the aisles of our local grocery store this week I stumbled upon the corned beef and cabbage section. You know how grocery stores devote a portion of the store to any up coming holidays on the calendar? I think that is just so helpful. Especially for me at this time in my life when I can't seem to remember anything, let alone an Irish drinking holiday. Anyway, as I walked past the Easter section into the corned beef and cabbage section, the vision of red raw meat seared my eyes. I nearly lost my lunch as I stood gazing at the stacks and piles of uncooked corned beef. It was right then and there that I decided that our St. Patty's Day dinner would be a tribute to green- minus the meat this year...
I immediately hauled shopping cart over to the produce section (a much less gross section of the grocery store if you ask me). I bought every green thing possible and never gave another thought to the traditional Patty's Day fare.
Our vegetarian dinner consisted of Spinach tortellini and various other green non-meat things. Here are some pictures of our delicious dinner-
