Rainbows of Food

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

Rainbow soup – red: tomato soup, orange: carrot soup, yellow: squash soup, green: pea soup, blue: cheated with cauliflower soup and a touch of blue food coloring, purple: purple cabbage soup

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.
