Over the Rainbow Dinner

We're not Irish, but I imagine that my boys must think that if you ARE Irish, you must wear green a lot, clean up after leprechauns ALL the time, eat green food daily, {last year we had green spaghetti, green milk, broccoli... you get the idea.} OR, if they're not eating green food, they must eat everything in the shape of a rainbow! :) Because that's what we did tonight! My boys are visiting their dad for the weekend, so we got to celebrate our St. Patrick's Day supper a little early. {Lucky them!} Here is what we enjoyed:




I had seen some of the fruit rainbows out there, but I wanted one with mostly dinner food! Soooo...

This rainbow is made of:
RED: Corned Beef {of course!}
ORANGE: Carrots
YELLOW: Pineapple
GREEN: Peas
BLUE/PURPLE: Grapes
{Yeah, I cheated and skipped blue because we don't eat blueberries plain. But the grapes looked like both colors on our BLUE plate.} ;o)
CLOUDS: Mashed Potatoes

My boys loved it! And I must admit, I did too! 
You know what else I loved? Using PicMonkey for the first time for that photo above! I'm still playing around on the site, but so far I'm liking how quick and easy it is to use! {Have you tried it yet?}

Well, that's it! We aren't doing much more for St. Patty's Day, other than having Lucky Charms for breakfast tomorrow! And maybe a leprechaun will mess up their room... ;-) 
What fun things do you do for St. Patty's Day?

I love it! What a fun idea! There are so many cool foods you could add, and it's so healthy with all the colors.
