Eat Your Greens!

Happy Thursday! I've been working so hard this week it's hard to believe it. After a relatively easy summer of herding the minnies, I'm back to the reality of work! WHEW. Things are going well and I'm looking forward to students returning to class on Monday, but it's busy busy busy for me.

Today I want to play along with the lovely Trish for her Pink and Green Thursday and share some gorgeous green images with you. Surprisingly, I like my greens and so do my minnies, but most kids don't like to be told, "Eat Your Greens." Of course, I'd much rather enjoy some of the green goodies here...

These green cupcakes are so delicious! Jump on the cupcake craze at your next party with these easy to decorate cupcakes that look amazing.

And these mint cupcakes make the perfect end to an elegant dinner. They would decorate a dessert buffet, too! I love to use food as decoration at a party.

I went to a butterfly launch with the minnies and it was such a positive and beautiful experience. Many people also do this at weddings. What a perfect favor these cookies would be!

Here's another treat to tempt your sweet tooth. A chocolate lover's dream!

Cucumbers? Of course! I love cucumbers so much and they are such a healthy treat. Sprinkle sliced cucumber with a little chile powder and lime and you've got a tropical treat. Cucumber water is also so refreshing.

This sure isn't cucumber water but I had the most interesting drink a week or so ago. It was called a Green Lantern and had some "spirits" in it along with mint and cucumber. Oddly, it was very mild and tasted like a sugary cucumber water. Dangerous!

Of course traditionalists would drink this minty drink from a silver cup, but you get the idea...

They really should sell the grasshopper Oreos all year long, don't you think?

Wishing all of my lovely readers a perfectly beautiful day filled with all things happy.
