Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I hope you all are gettin your green on this weekend. St. Patrick’s Day makes me love being American. I love that we just take other countries holidays, dumb them down, fatten-them-up, and call it good. And why not? It’s fun. Who doesn’t need more fun in their life??
I’ve never been to Ireland and have no idea how they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day over there, but I’m guessing it’s different than how we do it. I’m pretty sure it involves less green. Probably less dyed-green-milk, dyed-green-pork-chops, and dyed-green-rivers, and probably a lot more beer-drinking. Do I have any Irish readers? Maybe you should educate us on what you folks do over there.
In the meantime, I am here to provide you with my New Favorite Thing. It just so happens to be green, but I am telling you this stuff is AMAZING. I wish there were a way to make it look more beautiful, since we eat with our eyes first. But trust me on this one. These Sour Patch Grapes taste like candy. I can honestly say that I prefer these to Sour Patch Kids. 2-year-old Charlotte absolutely loved these, and I can’t wait until next year when she is a bit older. I will make them and tell her that a Leprechaun surprised us with some Leprechaun Candy. This is such a fun and easy treat for kids!
