Happy St. Patty's Day

I was planning on skipping the green meal this year. Both boys had practice til 7:15 and it made more sense to do something quick than to make a big ordeal out of the day. Emily didn't see it that way, it is St. Patrick's Day which means we eat a green meal.
Totally unprepared we headed to the store after dropping the boys off at practice. Wandering around the store we came up with this meal.

Green tea and chipotle lime tilapia(not exactly green but there were green flecks of cilantro so it did the trick).

Cucumbers, roasted asparagus and broccoli and french bread with green butter.

Chocolate cake with green frosting for dessert. Looks scrumptious doesn't it?

I am so happy that the kids love our traditions and they aren't just something that I get a kick out of doing. Anytime I try to skip something at least one of them makes sure that I do right and, in the end, I am always glad they set me straight.

That is amazing! My girls wanted me to make a green dinner but I was really lacking in imagination. Way to go! :)
