The Organized Life, March Paint Bucket

I know we are all happy that March 1 is on the horizon,

and Spring is on it’s way!

St. Patrick’s day is an important holiday at my house,

no I’m not Irish, but my grand, CC, was born on St. Patrick’s Day

She’s definitely a cute and mischievous leprechaun!

According to Wikipedia,

“The introduction of the potato in the second half of the 16th century

heavily influenced Ireland’s cuisine thereafter and,

as a result, is often closely associated with Ireland”

The flavor/theme of the month is Potato

  1. Good morning, Jenna! Potatoes are a staple at our house and we love a simple baked potato and every other way they can be prepared! There are so many interesting offerings in your March Paint Bucket and I know they will all be delicious. Happy Sunday ☔️

    I am so looking forward to March! You have a plate full of creativity lined up, Jenna. And who doesn’t love potatoes? “It’s MR. Potato Head to you….” (as told to Woody in Toy Story). A friend of mine asked just yesterday…who ever thought we’d be living in an age where we’d be reassigning gender to a plastic potato???

    • I agree Rita, that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard lately, and that is saying a lot in this new age of ridiculous!

      • lghiggins says:

        And how many companies are just toeing the line with this craziness? Heaven forbid, if this mess should reach French or Spanish speaking countries where nouns have genders for no apparent reason. What will the PC police do with that? I guess instead of Cancel Culture they will impose Cancel Language.

  3. Martha says:

    Always so fun and festive here!

  4. Great post Jenna with lots of yummy food. This is a crazy world right now. Mr. Potato head?
    Looking forward to seeing your posts for the Traveling Tote and then St. Patrick’s day blog hop.

  5. March! The month of spring! And all this inspiration for a feast!

  6. Pretty blooms and a touch of the Irish! I’m going to like March!

  7. Shannon@Belle Bleu Interiors says:

    Jenna, I’m so happy spring is almost here, and I’m looking forward to your yummy recipes! Take care, and enjoy your week!

  8. Rainbow noodle salad sounds really good Jenna! Time for me to lighten-up a bit on the calories… Happy March:@)
