Happy GREEN Day!!!


We had our annual GREEN dinner last night since Alan had the day off. We had Alan's friend Dan and his son Easton over which was fun. This dinner is always so weird to me. When I cook there's usually a theme. Like if we're having tacos I'll make guacamole and salsa to go with it or if it's a roast we'll have potatoes and a steamed vegetable. Hamburgers would have a side like chips and corn on the cob. They GO together. Our green dinner never makes sense but oh well! The kids pick out a bunch of things they can think of that's green and we cook it all up.
This year we brought back last years favorite shepherds pie (green mashed potatoes on top), paired that with a side of asparagus and chips and guacamole. To drink we had green Gatorade. We followed that up with mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert.
Today I have had the pleasure of changing 2 green poopy diapers so far and it is only 3:00 in the afternoon. GOOD TIMES!

i like your green dinner idea...maybe i will remember to do that next year cuz i really hate the traditional corned beef and cabbage and so we never do anything festive.
