Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day??   When my kids were little we always had corned beef and cabbage for dinner and watched Darby O’Gill and the Little People.  It was a welcome break after a dull and dreary Ohio winter!  They loved the little people and I liked it because a very young Sean Connery was in it!

This year I’m still fixing the corned beef and cabbage….even though it will take days to get the smell out of the house! But I also found a great little recipe for Shamrock Shakes that I’ll be trying too.

McDonald's Shamrock Shake Copycat Recipe
(makes 1 giant shake, or 2 generously sized shakes)
3 cups good quality vanilla ice cream
1 3/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Green food coloring, if desired
Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! 

May the sun always shine on your windowpane,

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain,

May the hand of a friend always be near you,

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you!
