If you've been reading a while, you know that St. Patrick's Day isn't my gig. It used to be that I hated the throngs of drunk people who would swarm the city as I tried to make my way home (or to the bar where I'd try to quietly meet up with friends), but those days are long over. (After work drink—ha!) Now the issue is—get ready for it—dyed green food and drink. It annoys me, because gross.
Yes, seriously. It grosses me out enough that I'm writing about it.
It's not that I don't like green food (spinach rocks!), it's that I don't like green food that isn't meant to be green—and is very green thanks to artificial food color. Like I said: gross. But naturally green food? I'm not a total scrooge. I can get down with it! And the best way to make things green the honest way is to add matcha green tea powder. Because then it tastes like green tea, too, which is meant to be green.
