“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” -Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You
My favorite childhood author? Dr. Seuss. No doubt about it.
Today would be his 108th birthday! What better way to celebrate than reading your favorite Dr. Seuss books like…
And eating Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast! (without the green food coloring, though).
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! These "green eggs" are actually just scrambled eggs full of vitamins! I promise you don't taste the spinach at all.
- Big handful of spinach
- Sliced Ham
- Put your eggs and spinach in a blender, and blend until smooth and green.
- Heat a skillet to medium heat and lightly grease to keep the food from sticking.
- Pour the egg mix on the pan and scramble until cooked through. Place on serving plate.
- Lightly brown the sliced ham until warm, and place next to eggs on plate.
- Read some Dr. Seuss books while enjoying your festive breakfast!
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” –Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go!
In elementary school, we always celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The cafeteria served their own green eggs and ham (thinking back now, that sounds disgusting! and rubbery!). We dressed up as Dr. Seuss characters with crazy hats, hair, and socks, and then read a few of his books. His birthday is a day I like to celebrate every year (my birthday is the day after, so it is double the celebration).
My favorite Dr. Seuss book:
“Oh the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all.” –Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go!
My little brother likes green eggs and ham, too!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
What is your favorite book by Dr. Seuss?
