Want to make your own green beer for your St. Patrick's Day celebration? It's easy! Just buy some light colored beer (Bud, Coors, Miller) and add a couple drops of green food coloring. Done. Easy, huh.
For a kid-friendly beverage, lime sherbet and lemon-lime soda makes a frothy and delicious concoction.
If you're interested in a more traditional Irish food festival, I suggest Shepherd's Pie and Corned Beef Hash.
Make this Food Network Corned Beef dish in your slow cooker and dinner cooks while you head to Thunder in the Valley or another fun activity on Saturday.
I love Martha Stewart's healthy Shepherd's Pie. It's made with ground turkey instead of ground beef and she uses parsnips and potatoes for the mashed topping.
Still hungry? Check out Beer and Cheddar Soup from Food & Wine.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
