Rainbow Dinner

Since the Leprechauns turned our breakfast green in the morning, and left a trail of gold for us after church, (which lead to a box of Lucky Charms --Hello lunch!) We decided to have a rainbow themed dinner in honor of St. Patrick's day. Of course, the main course was corn beef and cabbage but the rest of it was as rainbowy as we could make it.

Rainbow fruit platter
Washed and cut by me arranged by Camille and Natalie
Rainbow ice cubes 
(Fail --Seriously I failed at making ice cubes.....embarrassing......I added WAY to much food coloring to the ice cubes so when water was pour is it leeched the excess color and resulted in black water. Lesson learned, I'll try it again with some adjustments. Like don't add food color drops into each individual cube. Mix up some colored water then pour into the trays.)

Rainbow Jello
Pain in the butt--it took me all day Saturday to put this together but tasted good. We will be having jell-o today for lunch and dinner and possibly tomorrow too. Everyone thought it was fun so I might do it again next year.
and of course some
Rainbow Bread

A special thanks goes out to pinterest from which I steal all my good ideas.I'm not creative enough to come up with ideas like this on my own but I like to try out others great ideas. 
(Well, the jell-o shamrocks were an original Karen idea but don't get use to those!)

On Friday Camille sported shamrock hair to school. 
 No shamrock hair happened on Sunday because I had a early meeting before church and had to speak in Sacrament meeting.

Fun! I would have done the exact same thing with the ice cubes - added a drop to each cube.
