St. Patty's Day

I love that St. Patrick's Day fell on a weekend this year. I was able to do a lot of really fun things.

I made a few of my mom's amazing Irish Soda breads for home and work. I literally eat them for breakfast the whole week that it is in the house! I love the crunchy bits.


I had my cub scout Den meeting scheduled on St. Patrick's Day so I made one healthy and one treat for snack time. I found tons of ideas on Pinterest as usual! I had picked up the St. Patrick's Day picks in my travels some where.


Not only were they super green and adorable but the Lucky Charms on the cup cakes were AMAZING!


These green fruit skewers were super easy I threw them together in a few minutes!


I bought these ridiculous mustaches for the Cub Scouts to wear as well as some silly Irish saying pins. Seriously the pins were 8 for $1 at the Christmas Tree Stores and the boys loved them! 

  
Talk about cute!


The piece de resistance was the slow cooker corn beef that was cooking all day. The house smelled amazing all day.  I halved the recipe but we still had a ton enough for Brett to have leftovers for lunch! This is pictured on a turkey platter.


 You can find all of the recipes on my St Patrick's Day Pinterest page.

Happy pinning!
