Anyway, my celebration of St Patrick's Day was wearing green and spending a few hours in Chicago. It started with the Potluck of the Irish at work on March 15th. I wanted to make something for the holiday and so thanks to Pinterest, I got the idea of making Green Mint Chocolate Chip cookies. I basically just made my usual chocolate chip cookie dough and added green food coloring and mint chips instead of chocolate chips. I don't work with food coloring usually, so I wasn't exactly sure how much to use. I put in a few drops to my dough and it seemed like enough as it was a nice green color, but when they baked, the cookies looked normal on the bottom and slightly green on top. I definitely think I could have used more food coloring. I'll know for next time. Either way, they tasted great and my co workers enjoyed them too!!

Kristin and I then walked along Michigan Ave, got some tea to warm up for a bit and then went shopping. It was a fun Sunday afternoon and St Patrick's Day!
