In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day I decided to whip up a quick batch of something green and festive.
I read somewhere that originally the color blue was associated with Saint Patrick. He used the three leafed shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to non-believers. Eventually over time, shamrocks and the color green became synonymous with the Irish holiday.
Rather than drinking pints of alcohol, I’ll be partaking in the consumption of a lot of green sugar. I’ll be taking these delicious little Green Velvet Donuts to parties this weekend. This is simply a red velvet cake that has been dyed green. When I lived in Chicago, I was so eager to see the Chicago River dyed green for this holiday. Its funny how the ordinary can become so extraordinary with just a little change of color.
No matter how you celebrate this Saturday, I hope its a good one.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
