St Patty’s Day Lucky Charms Breakfast March 17, 2013

Jamie says: Happy St Patrick’s Day, and top o’ the morning to you!

Thanks to my parents for the awesome St. Patty’s Day care package, I had a festive breakfast this morning that included some green (pistachios) and pot o’ gold (or at least a marshmallow one).

I liked having the smaller size container of Lucky Charms instead of the whole box.

Just add milk (fat free milk, that is)

I enjoy Lucky Charms once a year for this Irish holiday. They bring me back to when we used to go on ski trips in North Carolina when I was little. (I’m really surprised I can remember that.)

The frozen bananas had a large marshmallow-like consistency.
