Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

Today is the Dr. Seuss' Birthday!!

My kids love Dr. Seuss Books!!


Our Favorite is Yertle the Turtle.

When I got my e-mail newsletter from Barbara Beery @ Kid's Cooking Shop, I knew that I would love to celebrate with my kids by cooking up Green Eggs and Ham Scramble and Pink Yink Ink Drink.

Both recipes were very easy to put together and I was so excited about the amount of fruits and veggies that were in them!! While I left out the pesto (I forgot it at the grocery store) I am thinking about trying out this recipe again...It would make a great late night supper or late Sunday Brunch.

We give these recipes

Green Eggs and Ham Scramble - 4 spoons.

Pink Yink Ink Drink - 5 spoons.




1 teaspoon butter

1/2 cup fresh spinach greens, washed and dried

1/4 cup smoked ham, diced

1/8 cup scallions, chopped

3 eggs, whisked

1 heaping tablespoon Basil Pesto

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spinach, ham, and scallions to the skillet, stirring with a wooden spoon to combine.
  2. Cook for 2 minutes, and then pour the eggs over the spinach mixture. Allow the eggs to begin to set. Stir in pesto, salt, and pepper and cook until eggs are cooked evenly.

Dr. Seuss's Pink Yink Ink Drink


½ pint fresh or ½ cup frozen blackberries or blueberries

1 cup milk or vanilla soy milk

6 fresh strawberries (green tops removed) or ½ cup frozen strawberries, thawed
