In celebration of the coming holiday, the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day we hosted our friends, the Seagers, for a green lunch.
Everything on the table was green: shamrock jigglers, grapes, granny smith apples, kiwi, potatoes with parsley and oregano, pumpkin bread (not green, but leftovers I was trying to get rid of), black bean breakfast burritos made with bright green eggs, 7-UP, and green rice krispies for dessert. With 10 kids between us, we opted to avoid all green foods that came in the form of vegetables.
In honor of the celebration, everyone, except for Colin and myself, wore green.
We didn't want the other colors to feel left out.
Maybe next time we'll take up a bit more of a challenge and celebrate chartreuse instead.
