Happy St. Patty's Day!

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-


  1. I don't even see a belly!!! Dinner looks yum.

  2. We need a picture of your baby bump! Clothes on, please! Dinner looks good and our traditional New England boiled dinner was awesome. I chopped it up today and added beets for Red Flannel Hash. It was good, but of course I'm not pregnant, and meat sounds good! xxoo

  3. Thatta girl! Keep feeding that Irish boy healthy food.
