St. Patrick's Day Lunch {with Cracker Recipe}

Three more days until St. Patrick's Day! We cannot wait for corn beef and cabbage and are happy to have a couple more days to pack a lot of clover and green in our lunchboxes!

We packed our yubo today filled with a corn muffin with fruit leather detail, some No Bake Oatmeal Cocoa Cookies from yesterday, two clover shaped sandwiches with green dye-free tortilla and mayo and mustard on the side and some home made clover shaped Ritz crackers.

Home made Ritz Crackers you say? You think they were extremely hard to make, took hours to bake and are only to be attempted on a long weekend? Wrong!

I found the recipe for the home made Ritz crackers on Instagram. The very talented Stefanie Newcomb (aka @stefanienewc) posted the recipe. She is an amazing belly, birth and baby photographer (find her website here) and also happens to make amazing lunches and food art (check her Facebook!). Well, and she posted a short, simple recipe and had me intrigued.

The kids and I were so pleasantly surprised on how simple they were to make, how much the kids could help and how very very yummy they were. So without further ado, here is the recipe I have been raving about:

Home Made Ritz Crackers
(Recipe courtesy of Stefanie Newcomb)

2 cups of flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
Pulse in food processor, then add
6 tbs margerine
2 tbs oil
1/2 cup of water 

Combine all in food processor. Roll out as thin as possible and cut out with cookie cutters.
Bake 10-12 min at 400 degrees. After baking brush with some melted margarine and salt if desired.

Thank you for sharing this recipe, Stefanie :)
