St. Patrick's Day

Stephanie and I love family holiday traditions--especially where food is concerned. We've come up with a few of our own since being married: cinnamon rolls and hot cocoa for breakfast on Christmas day, heart-shaped pizza and orange julius for Valentine's Day dinner, and green eggs and ham (with a bunch of green side dishes) for dinner on St. Patrick's Day, to name a few.

As chance would have it, we were in Chicago yesterday during their famous St. Patrick's Day parade. We decided to skip out on the parade, partially because of the frigid wind, but also so we could spend more time checking out the museums. So this year, we celebrated the holiday with our usual all-green family fun dinner.

Stephanie and I were looking through family photos the other day and realized that our St. Patrick's Day tradition is our oldest tradition--we've done it every year since being married!

Here are some pictures from tonight.

This year's fare: green eggs and ham (as always), green mashed potatoes with green gravy, garlic lemon roast cabbage (yum!), and green milk.

I do like green eggs and ham! I do, I like them Sam-I-am!

You guys are so creative. You definitely inspire me to want to be better at establishing family traditions with our little family.
