Are You Eating Something Green for St. Patrick’s Day? (Mar. 11, 2010)

Check out this article from Whole Foods Market’s blog for some great green recipes! I’m excited to try the Creamy Asparagus soup (maybe I can actually get Bryan to eat asparagus)! I think it will go great with the Corned Beef Brisket I’ve been waiting to use. If anyone has a good St. Patrick’s Day recipe, please post it in the comments section below. Thanks!
