Meet the Sullivans: St. Patrick's Day + Our Weekly Menu

St. Patrick's Day + Our Weekly Menu

Hello there! I hope you had a nice weekend. As I'm writing this I'm already starting to feel like it was forever ago, which it pretty much was because it's already Wednesday afternoon.

On Saturday we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with family! It's always been a tradition in Keith's family to have a big party of the holiday and now my mom and sister join us too. Everyone has a fun time hanging out, playing games and enjoying each others company, and maybe an Irish Car Bomb or two. ;)


I had the boys dressed in matching shamrock t-shirts (thanks, Old Navy!), but completely forgot to get a picture of them together -- they were both too busy having fun with everyone. We only managed to get Owen to stop playing basketball for a split second to take this picture before he ran back over to play again.

Owen was really into the whole idea of making a leprechaun trap this year, so in the week or two leading up to the day he and I worked on making his creation. I let him take the lead completely on deciding how he wanted to whole thing come together and just helped him execute it with the tape and collecting the supplies, etc.

Luke enjoyed his first taste of corned beef and ate two servings! He's a great eater and it's such a relief.

We got a nice family photo! We've taken one each year for at least the last 5 years and I'm always to happy to have them to look back on. The kids have all grown so much!

Traditional St. Patrick's Day food has really grown on me over the years. I definitely don't cook it through the year, but I always enjoy it on the holiday. I made Irish Soda bread again this year and it was fantastic!

Speaking of food... here is what's on our dinner menu for the week. Nothing too fun or interesting. I bought pretty much everything at Costco, which means there is little to no prep work all week -- hooray!

Monday - Italian Meatballs, Pesto Tortellini and Green Beans
Tuesday - Rotisserie Chicken, Cesar Salad and Brown Rice
Wednesday - Salmon, Asian Salad and Brown Rice
Thursday - Pioneer Woman's Pot Roast over Cauliflower Rice
Friday - pizza!

Hope you're having a great week so far!
