6 Saint Patrick’s Day Lunches

Cute Food St Patrick's day

Last year I shared 7 St. Patrick’s Day lunches including some old ones. This year I created new cute food for St. Patrick’s Day. I love making cute shaped food for any holiday or occasion. This food includes a shamrock, Claddagh ring, Irish flag, Leprechaun, sheep, and a tortilla chip in the shape of Ireland.

Shamrock Hand pie food

This was a simple but satisfying meal to make and eat. I made the hand-pie with pie crust, a shamrock cookie cutter, cooked broccoli and cheese.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Broccoli and Cheese Shamrock hand-pie

Top Right: Pistachios with little shamrocks drawn with food safe marker

Bottom Right: Kiwi

leprechaun cheese

Recently I have enjoyed garnishing with  cheese art. I made a mermaid, fox head and now this leprechaun. I was inspired by this coloring page. My leprechaun has a deep wrinkle on his face (crack in the cheese) but I think that it adds to his character.

Container: Book Bento Box

Contents: Quinoa, Broccoli and Cheese Casserole, white and orange Cheddar cheese, food safe marker

Ireland Country Shape Food

I am not sure how successful this is but I tried to make a Ireland country shaped tortilla chip to top this Mexican rice meal.

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Contents: Lettuce, rice, black beans, tomatoes, onion, cheddar cheese, tortilla cut in the shape of Ireland and browned in a frying pan with cooking spray.

claddagh ring food

When brainstorming new Ireland / St. Patrick’s day themes to try this year, I remembered the Claddagh ring. The fingers turned out a little strange but I still like it.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top: Cheddar cheese quesadilla with food marker details

Bottom Left: Sugar snap peas

Bottom Right: Green grapes

Irish Flag Snack Food Idea

I made this little Irish flag themed snack for my husband. I wanted it to be different than this Irish Flag so we came up with different food he would eat in green, white, and orange.

Container: Small divided snack container

Top: Sugar snap peas, cauliflower, orange cheddar

Bottom Left: Ranch dressing

Bottom Right: Green grapes

Sheep stencil food

The stencil is supposed to be a sheep and her lamb.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Broccoli

Top Right: Mandarin oranges

Bottom: Quinoa with Parmesan and hot paprika (I used a stencil to create these sheep)

What are you making for St. Patrick’s day this year?
