    Wow! These ideas all sound amazing! I especially love the Lucky Charms Ice Cream Sandwiches – what a creative and fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I’m definitely going to have to try that one out. And the Reuben Salad sounds like a delicious twist on a classic sandwich. I’m curious – have you ever tried making a vegetarian version of the Reuben Salad? I’m always looking for meatless options, and I think that could be a tasty one. Thanks for sharing these ideas!
