Irish You A Happy Day!

Happy Thursday!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Happy first day of March Madness!
March 17th is always one of my favorite days of the year :)

I always make sure to celebrate the little bit of Irish heritage I have with all things green!
I typically will have one of my many Irish socks on.
And if I can't find something to wear to work, I will just throw on my shamrock scarf!
I picked this bad boy up a few years ago at Sears for less than $5!
It isn't just me who has to rock green on St. Patrick's Day...X must wear it too!

We even picked up this fun/silly hat one year at Target :)

As for food, we have made green pancakes and added some Lucky Charms marshmallows on top,
drank green milk or adult beverages,
and I typically make Shepherd's Pie (similar recipe) for dinner and dye the mashed potatoes green :)
 One year we went out for dinner and grabbed the green pasta that Skyline Chili makes only on St. Patrick's Day.
I wish every day could have a certain color or theme assigned to it! lol!

This one was too funny not to share ;)

Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?
Do you wear green or change the color of your food?
Do you have any Irish recipes?
I would love to give them a try!
