St. Patrick's Day

 We started our day off with a stack of rainbow pancakes.  Bananas were added for clouds and we counted the pure maple syrup as our pot of liquid gold.  To make the rainbow I added food coloring into my favorite pancake batter and cooked as usual.  For next time I might find a way to flavor the pancakes different flavors.  That way we can have a rainbow of flavors too! We had our traditional dinner of corned beef and cabbage. This year I tried roasting the cabbage instead of steaming it.  I used this recipe of Martha Stewart's, except I used fresh rosemary instead of the caraway or fennel seeds. I will definitely cook cabbage this way again. We ended the day with a drink of lemon lime soda with a scoop of lime sherbet floating in it.
