St. Patrick's Day Greens!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Let’s get ready to celebrate the Irish and paint the town green!

 

Did you know the Irish are known for their veggies?! So, in addition to dressing in green this year, why not plan a green-themed spread full of delicious green veggies!

 

The pot is plentiful when it comes to green-themed recipes – all perfect to prepare and enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day. Libby’s® Fruit and Vegetables makes it simple and easy to incorporate your favorite greens, like green peas, beans, or asparagus, into your spread. Each variety of Canned Vegetables offers smart nutrition, as well as helps save you time with the veggies already peeled and sliced. With Libby’s® your prep will be easier than you can say “Erin go Bragh.”

 

For some St. Patrick’s Day party tips to help make hosting simple and easy:

  • Great food
  • We all know the success of a party is contingent on good food. Prepare recipes you’re familiar with and can be made in bulk so there’s plenty to go around.
  • Simplify
  • Keep it simple and serve no more than three dishes you know will be a crowd pleaser. Anything more can be overwhelming, both for you and your guests.
  • Use as much help as you can
  • Rather than doing everything on your own, ask family and friends to bring a dish or festive decoration to the party. It will take stress off your plate and get everyone involved.
