In the afternoon we had errands to run and people to see, but we had only one thing on our minds....Shamrock Shake! Fast food is not something you'll see often around here, but a Shamrock Shake is an annual March tradition. I tried making homemade, healthy substitutes last year with frozen yogurt and mint extract, but honestly, nothing compares to the real deal. We shared a medium, and it was worth every slurp.
Dinner was a Saturday night favorite: grilled cheese and green apple paninis. I started making these a few years ago to pair with my butternut squash soup, but we love the flavor combination so much that we eat them even when we're done with butternut squash for the year.
