It’s almost St.Patrick’s Day…one of my favorite days of the year. I am half Irish, but in my heart, I’m 100%.  Both my maternal grandparents were born and raised in Ireland, and I am determined to go back there someday. I am beyond proud of my heritage, and I remind my children of it constantly.

Today’s Friday Favorites kicks off with one of the best places to grab a quick, delicious meal.  Let me introduce you to Green Leaves to Go in Agawam, Massachusetts. Owners and sisters Rose LaFleur and Lois Rossi make their gourmet creations inside Nina’s Cookies in Feeding Hills, Massachusetts. In the morning, they serve up a breakfast sandwich that keeps you full till Noon. For lunch, take your pick of fresh salads or sandwiches. One of their specials the other day was a sweet citrus salad – mixed greens topped with a scoop of our cranberry walnut chicken salad, Vermont cheddar & a medley of chopped apple & oranges soaked in fresh squeezed lemon & honey. How good does that sound? Whether you opt for take-out or you’re providing lunch for the office or an event, Green Leaves to Go is a must try. Once you go there, they will become your favorite…I guarantee it.
