Green Eggs and Ham

March 2, 2016 will be the 102nd anniversary of  Theodor Seuss Geisel's (aka Dr. Seuss) birth. Some fans will be eating green eggs and ham in his honor.

Personally, I found scrambled eggs sauteed with a little spinach or other fresh green (like radish tops) to be delicious. So, here's my recipe: Heat frying pan on medium low, add a pat of butter (1 Tablespoon) and melt, meanwhile...break open 3 eggs into a bowl, beat with a fork, add a little water (1/4 cup or less), pour into frying pan. Rinse, pat dry and finely chop about 1/4 handful of  fresh greens (spinach, radish tops, or parsley). Toss into the frying pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (I prefer cayenne pepper) and stir around until the mixture has thickened and cooked through. Serve with Ham.

Also, in honor of Dr. Seuss, I'm sharing my poem "Naptime":

Let’s snuggle together with some crackers and juice,

And turn the pages of my Dr. Seuss

 

We’ll read about creatures big and small,

Watch their antics and have a ball.

 

I’ve been reading since I was four,

We’ll read a little and then

Read some more.

 

About ships and spoons and

Cats and owls,

We’ll slide with verbs and

 Skip with vowels.

 

We’ll play in water both wide and deep.

We’ll slosh and splash

And then drift to sleep.
