Make green eggs and ham? Yes, you can, Sam I am. Get your kids in the kitchen and make this recipe for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Getting your kids in the kitchen is so much fun and so educational too. I remember my daughter wanting to help me cook starting at about the age 3. Trust me, it was a mess in my kitchen, but we both laughed and had so much fun, it was worth it.
Dr. Suess was one of my daughter’s (and my) favorite authors. I kept all of my Dr. Suess books and passed them on to her. My daughter and I would snuggle up and read each of the books over and over. Her favorite book was Green Eggs and Ham. So, I decided to come up with a recipe for green eggs and ham.
