St. Patrick's Day...Blue?

Did you know that St. Patrick's Day color was originally Blue.   That would be weird, we would be getting blueberry shakes at McDonald's rather than shamrock shakes.  I much prefer the latter.  Green  is said to represent balance, harmony, growth & nature.  I believe this is a good representation  of this day and going into spring. 

St. Patrick's Day was also called St. Patrick's Feast..which is how we still celebrate.  Lots of green beer, Corned beef and cabbage and people everywhere come up with interesting green food.  I decided to make green cupcakes this year...

Yummm, these might be my favorite yet.  What a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
