Happy St. Patrick's Day & Giveaway Winner

I'm not sure if the weather has been as annoying everywhere else, like it has been here in good ol' Kentucky. But I am praying that the snow is over and warmth is on it's way for a while. I hope each of you are staying warm and safe during this unpredictable season.
*Blowing Out The Candles*
The middle of March is an exciting time for our family because it begins the season of birthdays. It begins today, occurs about two to three times each month until the end of August. Actually in a couple weeks my hubby will be turning 30, I'm not really sure that he is as happy about it as I am about planning it. I am not looking to do very much, just something small here at the cabin. 
*Extra St. Patrick's Day Fun*
We had our St. Patrick's Day dinner yesterday and I took a few shots of the yummy things I made. We can't really do traditional Irish foods, because of our low sodium and gluten free diet. We had a hearty warm soup, old fashion pistachio desert salad and Fizzy Lemon Lime Punch. It was a very tasty meal.
To make the fizzy lemon lime soda punch you need 1/2 a container of frozen lemonade concentrate and lime as well, one two-liter of sprite, two cans of water and a lemon & a lime. Combine all wet ingredients. Slice up the lemon and lime for a garnish.
Super fizzy and delish.
This next recipe is one of those seventies throw back desserts, I know you remember it being on grandmas table. Pistachio dessert salad, aka Watergate salad. One box of instant pistachio pudding, one can of crushed pineapple un-drained, one cup of mini marshmallows and an 8oz tub of cool whip (thawed). Combine pudding mix and pineapple, allow to set in refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Then fold in cool whip and marshmallows. Best if eaten on first day made.

I was so sad to realize I only had THREE ladies enter my calendar contest, but it's much better odds for them! 33+ percent chance of winning, I'd love those odds! My son drew the name out of a hat and the winner is....
