Calling all leprechauns! Wow! St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. Does it seem to you like we were just celebrating Christmas? I guess time flies when we’re having fun, and St. Patrick’s Day is certainly all about fun. I love the way we can count on most Americans to suddenly become Irish (if only just for a day) and don their favorite shade of green. I just happen to be a wee bit Irish myself, thanks to my Pritchard ancestors. I only know that because in addition to my love of cooking, I’m also a genealogy nut. But whether you’re Irish, or just claiming to be, you might just want to celebrate on the 17th by serving up some of these minty Shamrock Shakes. Your friends will turn green with envy!
