St. Patty's Day!

I may not be Irish but I can still celebrate St. Patty's Day, right?  If only to avoid being pinched!

And for the food!

Lucky Charms- eaten the RIGHT way! Seriously- does anyone like the actual cereal in Lucky Charms?

And, of course, there's the Shamrock Shake

But this is what I want for breakfast!

Any excuse for pancakes, right?!

Mine may not have come out as pretty as the picture but they were pretty tasty :)

I halved the recipe since it's just my husband and I.  Here it is:

2/3 Cup Flour
1/2 Tablespoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoons Salt and Baking Soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup egg beaters (or one egg)
1 Tablespoon butter melted and cooled
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of mint extract
2 drops green food coloring
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Combine the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately and then mix together.  Stir in the chocolate chips last.  Then just throw them on the griddle like normal pancakes.

Top o' the mornin' to ya!
