This year who needs the corn beef and cabbage, or the beer calories to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Last year we recommended the traditional St Patty day feasts, but this year we are saving calories and keeping it simple.
To make sure you don’t get pinched this holiday, the chefs at Vintage Grocers came up with a fun recipe using items sold at the market. Their Green Machine Pizza is made up of some of our favorite greens like pesto, spinach and broccoli – so it’s healthy AND delicious!
