I warned you all that my blog was going to be flourishing with St. Patty’s Day ideas, huh. Oops, St PATRICK’S Day. My son does not like it when I shorten it to Patty’s 🙂
Rainbows are a huge part of the St. Patrick’s Day fun due to the enchanted idea that if you can just follow a rainbow to its end, you will locate a leprechaun’s hidden pot of gold. The leprechaun is then supposed to award you 3 wishes. What would you wish for? My 9 year old son said he’d only need one wish and he’d ask for a replicator. Such a Trekkie.
Here are some foods we have created in honor of Irish rainbows.
Veggie Kabobs – red peppers, carrots, yellow peppers, cauliflower, green peppers, and purple cabbage
Fruit rainbow – strawberries, cantaloupe, banana, green grapes, blueberries, purple grapes, marshmallows and Rolos
Same as above, only served on a small plate for an individual person
I should really include these, because they are not technically a rainbow food, but aren’t they cute! Little Irish flags made from green peppers, cream cheese and carrots.
