Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one

The Speck

Dr. Seuss’ birthday was last Friday.  I was super excited.  I was so excited that I purchased ham to eat alongside my green eggs.  I planned a few fun activities for Liam and got several books from the library.  It’s been great fun to introduce Liam and Sylvia to the likes of  Hop on Pop, Horton Hears a Who!, and Green Eggs and Ham.  I planned a whole afternoon of fun, crafts, books and invited my aunt to participate.  She used to teach elementary school  and I thought it would be fun for her.

In the end, I think everyone had fun.  Liam loves the movie Horton Hears a Who! so I let him watch that while I dyed the eggs and roasted cauliflower.  I will be the first to admit that when I say “planned”, I mean while I was up nursing Sylvi in the night, the thought popped into my head that this would be fun.  So I didn’t get to make this meal the way I plan to next year.  That being said, I only used 3 drops of conventional food coloring to do 8 egg yolks.  They were a little pale, but considering that Sylvi was eyeballing them, I figured it was ok.  Next year, I am going to try one of these methods.

No! I do not like green eggs and ham!

The ham.  I don’t like ham.  I never eat it and I was a little worried about how I was going to eat our sandwiches.  But then!  I thinly sliced apples and onions and sauteed them in some olive oil until they were tender.  I put a scoop in each sandwich before grilling and the result was perfect.  As a matter of fact, I’d eat it again without question.

In conclusion, “I do so like green eggs and ham! Thank you! Thank you, Sam-I-am!”
