Happy St. Patty's Day!

Hope everyone has a GREAT St. Patty's Day! Here's what we have in store:

Green jello snacks! Unfortunately, I don't have any St. Patrick's Day cookie cutters, but I do have spring ones..so we're going to have tulips, some other type of flower and butterfly jigglers!

Fun St. Patty's coloring pages! You can print them here! And we're making a cute green puppy out of a shamrock!

We were going to do a St. Patty's treasure hunt, but that was a little too ambitious to come up with late last night..however it's something to keep in mind for next year! I just have to gather the materials ahead of time..chocolate coins, multicolored tissue paper!

And finally, for dinner, we'll be having "Scalloped Cabbage"--recipe below:

Scalloped Cabbage (can be made into a main dish by adding meat, see notes)

2 qts of cabbage (one small-medium head of cabbage--ON SALE at Kroger thru Wednesday for 19 cents a pound!)
1 can cream of celery soup
1/4 cup milk
1 cup cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsps melted butter
salt and pepper, to taste
ground beef, turkey or chicken-optional

Boil cabbage in salted water for approximately 5-7 minutes. Drain.
Add cream of celery soup. Mix in milk, cheese and salt and papper. (If you are making into a main dish casserole: Brown beef and mix into the cabbage mixture.)
Melt butter in microwave and toss with bread crumbs.
Put cabbage mixture in baking dish and cover with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 til mixure is bubbly and cheese is melted.
