I haven't celebrated St. Pat's in a while, certainly not a parade since I left Savannah. I used to have some awesome parade parties when I lived on the parade route. Maybe I'll treat everyone to some of my "green" baking treats that I used to prepare for the parties. Although since this parade starts much later it won't be for breakfast like I did for the Savannah parade. Hmmm, what to make? :click:

Stephanie, as you recall, in Savannah the tradition is green eggs and grits for breakfast. Then for drinking is green beer. Not much on the beer anymore, my taste have changed since those days. You could make Mint Julips.

At my parade parties I used to make green grits and green cheese biscuits, scrambled eggs, bacon, and Bloody Marys to start. Then I'd throw on a pot of beef stew for lunch later. Of course I always had a full bar and a keg in the courtyard that I made sure was tapped by 7 a.m.

Since we are DRIVING I doubt that adult beverages would be appreciated or allowed until after the paraded is finished and we are parked. My personal traditional beverage of choice after parking will be an Irish Kiss.

I'm still thinking about making the green cheese biscuits (Paula Deen's recipe + food coloring) + something more appropriate for lunchtime. I think a ham would be really good with the biscuits to make little sandwiches (hint hint MrSig, the ham smoking King :king1: :wacko: ). Maybe I can make some "green" potato salad as the token side item. Homemade stuff made colorful (not old store bought stuff past expiration).

I might go to this one instead of the one in Hollywood. This is something new with a new city. I'll have to check with the War Dept. :)

I believe that the application for the club to participate has been submitted. The online form that Dino linked lets the parade organizers know how many of us are actually participating with our group. Just fill out your info and put down that you are with SFJC.

Dino, correct me if I am wrong here. It seems you have confused some people with not quite enough instructions. :biggrin1:
