Easy St. Patrick's Day Breakfast and Dinner

For an easy St. Patrick's Day breakfast last year we had these "pots of gold." We used toast as our "pot" and scrambled eggs as the "gold."

A tricky little leprechaun also turned our milk green (with a few drops of green food coloring), so that added to the fun of our breakfast meal.

For St. Patrick's Day dinner, we had the traditional corned beef. I cook my corned beef in a Crock-Pot with apple juice and a little bit of water (instead of beer), and then season it with the seasoning packet that comes with the corned beef.

1. Fill bottom of crockpot with about 1" of apple juice & water.
2. Put corned beef brisket in crockpot.
3. Top with seasoning packet that it came with, along with garlic, salt, and pepper to taste.
4. Cook on low for about 5 hours.

We did not have cabbage with our corned beef as many people do, since no one in our family likes cabbage. Instead, we just served this corned beef with mashed potatoes, some of our favorite green vegetables, and and Irish Soda Bread.

For dessert, we decorated shamrock shaped sugar cookies with green frosting and sprinkles. For more St. Patrick's Day desserts, check out some of our treat recipes here and here.
