Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! In honor of the auspicious occasion, everyone in Kindergarten brought in a fave Dr. Seuss book today and had to fix green eggs and ham for homework.
I (wisely) decided that this was a wonderful job for TubaDad to oversee and delegated myself as camera woman, standing far back from the action and enjoying a soothing glass of wine to distract me from the eggs raining down onto my freshly cleaned floor and counters.
You think I jest? It was like a serial egg killer was loose in our kitchen.
Oy. Let’s just say that out of a dozen eggs, we did manage to get enough to feed four people (barely). But my wine was lovely...
Luckily the little egg assassins are cute. (And no, I’m not quite sure why Ro wanted to dress up as a cupcake for dinner. Whatever...)
After the egg slaughter, they did a pretty good job of mixing, stirring, coloring, cooking...
I really couldn’t get past the green color, but I think I was the only one bothered by it:
Mmmm, mmm, anyone hungry?:
In the end, our green eggs and ham dinner was enthusiastically received. Ro gave it two thumbs up and even ate seconds of the eggs:
And Ree gave it a thumb and a half up (the girl takes her ratings seriously, I think Tangled got the same rating):
And TubaDad and I were pretty dang happy that we had hot biscuits to make “hamwiches” so that no one could really tell how much green eggage we actually consumed.
Thanks for the laughs Dr. Seuss, and thanks TubaDad for humoring me and wearing the hat. You’re tops in my book.
