No Green Beer Here! March 24, 2010

Saturday night our Mighty Eagles Patrol got together for a St. Patrick’s Day party at the Doucette’s.  It was a potluck event and everyone had to bring something green to eat.  Alvin brought shepherds pie with the mashed potatoes on top tinted green.  I made corned beef casserole.  I put on a pan of boiling water and dumped some green  food coloring in.  The egg noodles picked up the green coloring wonderfully.  I added the cream of chicken soup, corned beef and cheese, and baked it.  Dar brought fruit salad with the whipped cream colored green and the Doucettes had green frosted cake and green slushies.  The food was all fantastic even though it looked thoroughly disgusting!

We fit in some scout stuff- working on first aid- and then the boys played videogames and ended the evening with a snowball fight with the last remaining snow on the ground.  It was a fun evening!
