Green Food for St. Patty's Day - What is the Appeal?
I know, I know...there's colored food for all sort of occasions, such as red hearts for Valentine's Day and all those pastels for Easter. Of course there's the patriotic colors for Independence day and the fall colors for Thanksgiving, but there is something not right about green bagels and cupcakes and pound cakes and dyed vanilla shakes and heaven knows what else.
I just don't get the appeal other than maybe for some sort of party for kids to celebrate...
Anyone care to share?
