Green Eggs and Ham: A Dr. Seuss Breakfast



I looked around my kitchen this morning and found that it was a complete disaster. Dishes piled high in the sink for me to wash and crumbs were all over the counter. I had had a dinner party the night before, and I always follow the advice of my great grandmother: “The dishes can wait till tomorrow; they will still be there, but your guests won’t.” As I slipped my hands into a pair of rubber yellow gloves to wash the dishes, I wished The Cat In The Hat would come and clean up this mess in a matter of minutes. That would have been grand, but since he did not, I enjoyed a plate of Green Eggs and Ham. I did have one little trick up my sleeve–I made these eggs green with a delicious spicy sauce that you wouldn’t believe.

  • 1 – jalapeno
  • 1 1/2 – cups cilantro (washed)
