Let me start out by saying that I am not Irish, none of my family is Irish, heck I don’t even have an Irish Setter so for me to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is quite a stretch. Like most American’s I will be sporting green apparel and at times I will even do my favorite Lucky Charms leprechaun impression.
Normally around our house the St. Patrick’s Day celebration begins with a traditional breakfast of ham with scrambled eggs. The eggs of course have been laced with green food coloring making this a breakfast of “Green Eggs and Ham”. This year though we broke with tradition and instead had green instant oatmeal. It just wasn’t the same but there was a reason why I broke with tradition.
