To make the chips: cut out shamrocks from spinach tortillas. Brush both sides with a little olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little salt and bake for 7-10 minutes at 350.

I love to make desserts! Sean told the kids I was Willy Wonka, and Brad was "Mr. Wonka"! LOL

Rebecca:

Yes, the kids went nuts and they are both still talking about it. Miles is ready to go back. I'm afraid they will now expect the same from me, but, there is only ONE Palma:)

Everything looks so great. And fun.
