The Irish heritage comes from my Dad’s side.
We are a lot alike me and my Dad.
We both have red hair.
We both like to cook.
We both love to be innovative.
We both like beer.
When I was little I remember my Dad using this:
She’s going on 50 I think.
She looks pretty hot if you ask me.
If you notice, it says “cocktail mixer”.
I treasure this gal.
I never hide it in the cabinet.
She’s been on display in our kitchen since we married.
My sister would love to steal it.
She thinks I hog all the good stuff.
My parents used her for several things, including but not limited to:
potato pancakes (can you believe that?)
Now we can add Shamrock Shake to the list.
Have you ever tried one?
It may seem as though I am obsessed with Mc Donald’s since starting my
Blog Bulge series. I assure you I am not, but every March I do take my girls to Mc Donald’s for a Shamrock Shake. This year I decided to make my own version.
Pour into blender:
2 Cups Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
2 Cups Fat Free Milk
1 1/2 Teaspoon Mint Extract (peppermint)
6-7 drops of green food coloring
Blend for about 2 minutes. This makes 2 large 16 oz. servings, or 4 small 8 oz. servings at 145 calories per 8 oz. serving.
