Celebrate With Some Green Treats

With St Patrick’s Day this Friday the 17th, we thought it would be fun to give a few green foodie creations to celebrate with neighbors, friends and family!

It must start with…

Homemade Green Beer

Add a colorful touch to your St. Patrick’s Day celebration by making green beer.
Place 2 drops of green liquid food coloring in the bottom of a beer mug or glass.
Add your favorite beer. No stirring needed. Green beer. Two drops seemed to be the right amount to get a nice olive-green sort of color. Three drops resulted in more of a kelly green shade.
