Green Eggs and Ham

We are a family of readers, and both of my girls are often creatures of habit in terms of the books they choose for us to read. One of their recent favorites, Miranda’s in particular, is Green Eggs and Ham. It was, therefore, not especially surprising that when I asked the girls one day if there were any meals they’d like for us to have soon, Miranda announced, without a moment’s hesitation, “Green eggs and ham!”

I don’t think I’m innately a super fun mom – I don’t do Pinterest, I routinely have to explain to nurses offering a choice of stickers that my girls have no idea who any of those characters are, and we’re much more likely to spend our Friday nights at local art shows than at any child-centered event. However, I figured if Miranda wanted green eggs and ham, that I could do 🙂

The girls helped me scramble some green eggs, and into the pan they went!


We rounded out the meal with a bit of homemade bread, carrots, and pineapple and dug in!


Unfortunately, the verdict was not especially positive. “I do not like them, Sam I am!”


But we had fun giving it a try 🙂
