Green Eggs & Ham Lunch

As part of our Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day celebrations, we made a Green Eggs & Ham lunch!

Of course, before you present a plate like this, you need to read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham!  

(affiliate link):

Then ask your kiddos, "What about you?  Would you eat green eggs and ham?"

I had all sorts of wonderful responses like, 

"No way!  I do not like green eggs and ham!"

"Maybe.  Maybe I would try them."

And my favorite:  "I would have to try them.  And after I taste them I would decide if I liked them or not."

Too fun!!

Make your own Green Eggs & Ham:

1.  Roll pieces of ham up and poke a toothpick through them.  Refrigerate them until you're ready to serve.

2.  Make green eggs, boil the eggs, peel the shells, and cut each egg in half lengthwise.

3.  Pop the yolks out and mash them.  Add a little mayonnaise, salt, pepper, mustard, and green gel food coloring to the yolks.  Stir it all together.  

4.  Scoop little spoonfuls of green yolk back into the egg whites and refrigerate them until you're ready to serve.

Ta da!  Green eggs and ham!  We served them with giant cat-in-the-hat-fruit-kabobs--look for a post with a picture tomorrow!

Happy Educating, Carla
