March is gusty, muddy, blustery. This is the month
For flying kites, roller-skating, rattly nights.
Wear something green on St Patrick’s Day.
Robins sing, “Spring is on the way!”
And bears wake up from their winter’s sleep.
One of my favourite holiday’s is St Patrick’s Day. What started off as a university tradition of “Beer Quest” with my good friends, has now evolved into a fun holiday with the family. I found this recipe for Shamrock Toasties on the Disney Family Fun website and not only is it simple to make, but it is a healthy after school/daycare snack.
1 Bell Pepper
1 English Muffin
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1) To start, slice 1 green bell pepper crosswise near the pointed end to get a small, three-leafed shamrock shape. (If the pepper has 4 leaves, you’ve got yourself a lucky clover!) Cut a small slice for the stem.
2) Toast half an English muffin, then top it with the shredded Cheddar and the pepper shamrock. Place the muffin on a tray, then broil it until the cheese is melted.
