In just one day shy of two weeks, we’ll all be wearin’ the green! Ever since our trip to Ireland many years ago, we have a special place in our hearts for St Paddy’s Day. HB and I clearly  remember sitting at the Rock of Cashel, where St Patrick is purported to have administered. What an awe-inspiring moment that was!

In celebration of everything Irish… here’s a fun and healthy treat for your kids or grandkids to share on their lucky Shamrock Day!

It’s so quick to fix – simply, clean and slice celery stick into narrow strips. Fill your favorite shamrock cookie cutters with peanut butter. That’s all there is to it! I said, easy – didn’t I?

How about putting on a couple of ki- friendly, Irish-themed movies while enjoying your healthy treats? Might I suggest Darby O’Gill and the Little People or Finian’s Rainbow… both available on Netflix.

Do you have any special family traditions in your home to celebrate St Paddy’s Day? I’d love to hear!
