Since today is his birthday (and it's almost over, yikes!), the kids and I decided to have a Dr. Seuss Day. We started off by reading some of his books: my personal favorite is The Cat in the Hat, but we didn't leave out One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish or Fox in Socks (another one of my favorites!). We played a Cat in the Hat inspired game called Cat in the Hat I Can Do That!- which is so cool and so much fun. We had the kids as young as 2 and as old as 33 playing and laughing and winning (we all won, of course!)
However, the day just wouldn't have been complete without our Green Eggs and Ham - this is one of the first books I ever remember reading. One magical day my own daycare provider was flipping through those pages saying "I am Sam. Sam I am" and it just clicked. A whole new world had opened up for me and I was hooked on books.
Anyhow - I digress. We read (a very worn and tattered version) of the Green Eggs and Ham and then got down to the dirty business of making and eating our own green eggs and ham. Well...green eggs and turkey ham.
We started off with eggs...separated the yolks from the whites....you'll also need green food coloring (my picture is crooked, and I'm too darn lazy to fix it....live with it peeps!)
Then, I added a few (4-5) drops of food coloring to the whites and mixed it up. (oops, another upside-down pic!)
I put the green whites into the pan, and then topped them with the yolks.
While the eggs were cooking, my daughter helped to paint the (turkey) ham...just a little food coloring and water (a few teaspoons).
Once it was all together, we had us a "Green Eggs and Ham" meal!!
Now....to think on how to make something equally cool tomorrow.....
