Happy Day After St. Patrick's Day!!
This day is completely unimportant, but I figured I'd use it to share a bit about my St. Patrick's Day since I was unable to make this post on the actual holiday.
If you know anything about me then you'd know that I loooooove holidays and I always do my best to dress accordingly - but I have nothing green... well, I mean, nothing that FITS anyways. I have two green sweaters and a green skirt but they're all too small - but my favorite green eye shadow still fits.
I enhanced the color in the first photo so you can see what a pretty green it is but the photos still aren't very accurate. It's a bold shimmering emerald that is out of this world.
Since going out drinking and partying is out of the question for a few more months, we stayed in and just watched crime investigation shows on Netflix.
For dinner I made scotch eggs with green hollandaise sauce, green mashed potatoes and broccoli.
Never had hollandaise on scotch eggs? You're missing out! Give it a try! As gross as it all looks, it was pretty fantastic.
All this green madness was followed up with my famous handmade strawberry shortcake. And by "handmade" I mean I used my hands to assemble it.
It's so easy to make. You want the recipe? Here it is: fresh bakery angel food cake, strawberry glaze, fresh strawberries and whipped cream. So simple!
So how was your St. Patrick's Day?
