St. Patrick’s Day is a week away, and this green Spinach Egg Bake is a great way to start the day. If you have picky eaters, they don’t have to know it contains spinach, since the leafy green is blended up.
An easy way to make fun food for young kids is to cut it into fun shapes, such as the shamrock shown above. I like this Cookie Cutter and Stencil Set for the variety, the large size of the cutters, and the extra detail that the stencils add.
If you don’t have a shamrock cookie cutter, any shape such as a star, flower, or even a circle helps add variety and fun to a meal.
