We’re not Irish.  We don’t know much about Ireland.  I’m not even sure why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  But, I do know it’s a great excuse to for a family tradition.  I love me a good tradition!

Several years ago, an old college roommate of mine posted about a fun thing she did on St. Patrick’s Day with her family.  (Shout out Shauntae!)  And, we totally stole it and have been doing it ever since.  So, welcome to the 2013 Gee Green Dinner!  In honor of St. Patty’s day, we have a dinner made of all green foods – some natural and some courtesy of a bottle of food coloring!  This year included:

Green pizza rolls

Salad

Green jello with green whipped cream

Green apples

Green soda

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  🙂
