It's Easy Being Green!

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

Whether green conjures up pictures of handsome froggie troubadours or idyllic back-to-nature love-your-planet initiatives...

Or the intense need to dress up and celebrate being Irish, no matter who you are or if you can even find Ireland on a map...

Fields of greens like lucky shamrocks that hold the key to luck, treasure and wee forest creatures.

And fields of salad greens that hold the key to health, vitality, and longevity.

We are going Green this week - and it is easy!

Cook up any of Nigella's dishes from cocktails, salads, mains, sides, or desserts - whatever makes you think green - and post it by March 21st.

Green for the planet, for St. Patty's Day, froggies, veggies or tender leaves.. there is lots to celebrate in this green world!

Just put up my mustard pork chops. It was a stretch to make them green, but I was having a mustard craving! What's a girl to do?
