· Green Morning: For the adults in the family, add 2 or 3 drops of coloring to Egg Beaters to whip up a green omelet, and load the insides with green peppers, broccoli and scallions. If you are really adventurous, bake your own green bread by just dropping two drops in the bread mix. Also, try adding a couple drops to whipped cream cheese – stir thoroughly and serve on toast or a bagel.
· Green No No’s: Forget about adding the green milk to your coffee; this will just result in a cup that looks like a cross between mold and moss.
· Pack It Up Green: Load up your children’s lunch boxes with lots of green – everything from celery sticks, green juice (try coloring a light colored apple juice), and green cheese (a light colored cheese is recommended here as well).
· Shamrock that Sandwich: Put a slice of Swiss, mozzarella, white colored cheddar or Monterey jack on top of ham or other sandwich meats. If you prefer vegetarian, try Light Life Smart Deli Turkey, Bologna or Ham varieties. Before you close up the sandwich, take a clean new paint brush and add a few drops of food coloring in a saucer. Paint a shamrock, smiley face, or even your child’s name on the top of the cheese. Let it dry, then leave the top slice of the bread off and saran wrap the sandwich for a surprise when they open their lunch box!
· Patrick’s Pudding: For a fun and colorful after school snack drizzle 1 or 2 drops of green food coloring over Snack Packs Vanilla pudding. For those with an extra sweet tooth, add a touch of Reddi Whip with a handful of green sprinkles.
· Shamrock Your Sides/A Green Alternative: If pasta isn’t your thing, how’s chicken or fish? Drizzle 1 drop over your meal. For sides, add 1 or 2 drops of food coloring to mashed potatoes, white rice or a light colored sauce.
Congrats Kate on winning! 🙂
