the minty green treat
I’m not Irish, but I still wonder how I will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with my kids. When I’m a mom, will I dye toilet bowl water and gallons of milk green just for their amusement?
Why wait until I have wee ones to get creative? Maybe tonight I’ll make myself this Shamrock Shake, which was inspired by the McDonald’s original:
