Lucky Lil' Leprechaun Gumdrops
Can't you just see them doing the jig or maybe hunting for that pot of gold?
My little guy is just waiting for his lucky kiss!!!!!!!
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
May the friendships you make,
Be those which endure,
And all of your grey clouds
Be small ones for sure.
And trusting in Him
To Whom we all pray,
May a song fill your heart,
Every step of the way.
On to the recipe! This one is from Melissa's Cuisine
