The month of March is pretty dreary here in the frozen tundra, also known as metro-Detroit, Michigan. Actually, I'd have to say March is normally my least favorite month. This is because while its still typically still freezing Winter, all the stores have set out the Spring clothes, other parts of the country have thawed and people are spending time outside, sometimes Easter is in March and its always cold (two years ago it snowed! It was colder on Easter than on Christmas that year!), and its just gray outside! The old saying, "March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a lamb" has not been true in recent years, as March has just been plain cold from start to finish.
However, one amazing thing does happen in March....Shamrock Shakes arrive at McDonalds! I don't know if you all love these shakes as much as I do, but oh how I love them! First of all, the color! What else could brighten up an otherwise dreary March day than a mint green shake? Also, I love the flavor! Its not too minty, but also more refreshing than a simple vanilla shake. I rarely have shakes, or McDonalds for that matter, but when March rolls around, I might have 10 shakes! Cheers!
