St. Patrick's Dinner

St. Patty's Day has come and gone and we managed to get everyone dressed in green yesterday so no one got attacked by the pinch-eager children.  We also managed to have our traditional "Green Eggs and Ham" dinner.  I also requested the kids come up with anything else green that they wanted...zucchini and green jello (I mean, hello, we're from Utah).

I bought some great Black Forest ham, cut in nice, thick slices.  I popped it in my crockpot on low for the afternoon and it was perfect by dinner.  

The ham accompanied the nice, green deviled eggs.  I don't use a recipe for these, but the kids love them with Miracle Whip and dill pickle relish.  I just add a few drops of food coloring for the green effect.

The zucchini was sauted with a little butter and Lawry's Season Salt.  I cook it until it just starts to become opaque, still crispy.

The jello was a great ending to the meal. The kids love it with "stuff" in it, so I just added fruit cocktail when I put it in the fridge.

We had limeade to wash it all down.  I didn't get a picture of it, sorry!  It was so good we drank it all before I thought about it, but if it helps we're having Strawberry Limeade tonight... maybe I'll take a picture of that, or not!

You are such a fun mom! The dinner looks fabulous. I could only muster the energy for green pancakes with green whip cream and green milk...hmm.. I'm boring!
