For St. Patrick’s Day.
Though, it is far removed from being a real green day here in Louisville today. We woke up to about 4 inches of snow.
But, as you can see, roads look wet, not icy. That is my only concern when we get snow— how are the roads?
Especially, this morning, I had planned to go early into Wally World (about 2 miles from our house) to get boxes, as well as pick up some green cookies for Mary’s Kindergarten class’ Green Day Buffet.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Mary’s teacher had asked the parents to send in “edible green food to share.” They had to bring 10 individually wrapped food items. I saw some green sugar cookies last Friday but I felt they would be stale by Monday, so I went early this morning to get them.
Except the store no longer had them. Instead, I was lucky enough to find 6 donuts with green icing.
Otherwise, it would have been 10 servings of pickles or 10 packets of cucumbers – both favorites of Mary’s, but, as she said, not everybody likes them. So, we cut these up in half, put them in sandwich bags, with 2 pieces left over for Mary to snack on later.
