Yes, the Leprechauns were at our house and busy at work making everything green and rainbowie for us and boy did we love it!
My kids woke up to a trail of gold leading them to cute St. Patrick's day shirts and a festive breakfast of green pancakes, green butter, and green juice.
For lunch they had friends over and we had a great lunch of green mac 'n cheese and rainbow jell-o. They topped it all off with fun rainbow and gold cupcakes.
Dinner was fun. With fun decor, green enchiladas, green beans, rainbow jell-o and fun cupcakes, how could you go wrong?!
Here's my yummy Creamy Enchilada Recipe. It is SUPER simple and SUPER yummy. I got it from my great sister, who is an amazing cook.
2 C shredded chicken
1/2 C chopped onion
2 TLBS butter
1 can evaporated milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 C sour cream
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
Dip tortillas in sauce, stuff with meat mixture. Roll. Cover all with 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese and 1 4 oz can of chopped green chilies. Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. (add green dye to sauce before dipping tortillas to change color)
The jell-o takes A LOT of time, but it's not bad if you have things to do between letting layers set. Needless to say it was a late night on the 16th! :) Get the recipe here.
The cupcakes were SOOOO fun to make. I couldn't find the airhead treat that she used, but these twizzlers were a good alternative. I made them with funfetti cake to give them a rainbow feel.
And these gems were inspired by a friend who did this with oreos for us as a treat for Christmas. It just seemed like it was totally appropriate for an Irish Occasion! :)
