Hello! Welp, this morning started off on a green note.
Gluten Free Ancient Grains Waffles topped in Key Lime Greek Yogurt, 1/2 a sliced banana, and sprinkle of chia seeds.
Is anyone else celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with anything and everything green? I’m hoping you are nodding yes, you know, just in case the pinch monsters are out there looking for you.
I’m trying my best. I’m not quite feeling myself today, so my original plans of cooking up something Irish may or may not happen. There’s talk of Scott cooking his famous Corned Beef and Cabbage, but there is a home game tonight… so I don’t see that happening either.
It’s a serious bummer, since we take this Irish holiday pretty seriously around here. Obviously.
If I happen to get over whatever kind of head cold is trying to bring me down, I will be looking at some of these last minute Irish dishes to make later on!

All right. I need to get going before I get sucked into the black hole we call Pinterest for hours.
What’s on your dinner menu tonight?
Anything Irish? Do share!
Ha. I’m actually making Gina’s Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage. It’s cooking away right now! Also, I’m planning on making her soda bread muffins. I made them last year and they were delicious 🙂
Too funny! Love that! You might have just inspired me to go grab the ingredients and get to work later this afternoon. Soda bread muffins sound so good too!

I’ve got nothing Irish going on, sadly! I will probably be having ketchup with dinner, though – if only that disgusting green ketchup from a few years back was still around, hey? Have an awesome day! 🙂
Haha, oh man!! I never tried that… there’s something about green condiments that I just can’t do. Enjoy your ketchup!

Omg I love that little puppy hat! I hope you feel better! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Hehe, I can’t even remember where that came from! Thanks Erin, you too!
The blackhole pinterest – so accurate, haha!! I seriously haven’t celebrated St. Patty’s in at least 3 years. Actually, 3 years ago I WAS suppose to attend a sweet St. Patty’s party (because the 17th was actually on a Saturday – score!), but the day before it, I took a pregnancy test that told me I would not be able to enjoy all things alcohol-related, so I had to cancel my plans so no one would immediately find out the news! haha
Today is actually my grandpa’s birthday so maybe I can just try and party it up with him next year haha
Haha, right? SO true. Awww, little Nia! I bet your friends understood once the news was out. <3

I totally didn’t do any leg work to make a festive dinner and am really bummed now! I have been sick the past few days and it definitely caused all of my ideas to go down the drain! These dishes all look mouth watering though, so maybe this weekend! Hope you feel better!
