We are not Catholic but I believe my child benefits from being immersed into the Irish traditions since she will most likely live her childhood here. So yesterday we attended a day of fun activities at the Belfast City Hall including, as you can see above, face-painting, tattoos, arts and crafts, snake petting and traditional storytelling. Emma loved it all, especially the storytelling time, the magic of the fairy stories, the flute playing and the good craic.
This morning I decided to celebrate, healthy style, the occasion myself. I made myself a lovely smoothie with pear, avocado, pineapple, fresh basil leaves, coconut milk and spirullina powder, to make it nice and green. I served it into a Murphy’s stout mug :-).
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
