4 Days of 4 Leaf Clover Ideas

on March 11, 2012

Today kicks off “4 Days of 4 Leaf Clover Ideas”.  St Patrick’s Day is upon us.  Only a few days away and plenty of time to have some fun in the kitchen and at the art table with the kids.  I’m excited.

Day 1 starts off in the kitchen, where this SuperMama was inspired by Will Cook For Food’s “Shamrock Cucmber Tea Sandwiches” http://www.willcookforsmiles.com/2012/03/shamrock-cucumber-tea-sandwiches.html.

I made some changes and swaped out some of the ingredients.  I tend not to give my girls cream cheese very often.  Probably because I don’t really eat it.  So I went with hummus (which they LOVE).  The nice part about St Patrick’s Day themed food is that green is a common veggie color.  If it’s presented in a fun way, kids might be more likely to try a bite or two.

Ingredients:

2 whole wheat English muffins or

4 oz of hummus

2 T shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

12 slices of cucumber

4 thin slices of green pepper

Fresh parsley (I kept this on for the presentation and took it off when they asked me if it was a leaf)

Directions:

1. Split the English muffins in half and cut out shamrocks in the muffin halves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Spread hummus and sprinkle cheese on top

3. Place 3 cucumbers on each leaf. Use the green pepper slice as a stem. Place a parsley leaf on top of the sandwich.
