"And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day" - Mary Elizabeth Blake

I like to get into the spirit of holidays, so last year, my roommate and I decided to get "creative" and make a green meal. Usually blogs show you the most beautiful photos of food and meals, but not this one. This experiment was absolutely hilarious, and I think the photo below shows why:

Yup, those are two plates of all green food. Here's how we accomplished this gastronomic "delight":
  • Broccoli - innately green, fail-proof, nutritious and delicious
  • Mashed potatoes - instant potatoes was mistake number one, but too much food coloring led to the most unappetizing of colors
  • Chicken with Spinach - a) Spinach, also green and nutritious, therefore, success b) Chicken, coated in green-dyed egg and panko, tasted much better than it looks, I promise!
I'd rate the aesthetic appeal of the meal at about a 3, I'd give the taste a 7, and the overall experience a perfect 10! 

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY and a cyber pinch to those not wearing green!
