#bookcook – Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham: The book contains only fifty words due to a bet with Seuss’ publisher that he could write a book for children under 225 words.

    We didn’t have Dr Seuss when growing up, so when I hear about one of the books, it’s usually the first time for me. It’s amazing that this one was written over a bet 😀 (and of course he won!) That looks like a crazy meal, but it also looks good 😀 did the recipe work and taste good?

      I have done green eggs and ham a few times, but not this specific recipe. I picked it because it looks less gross in the pictures. Most of the time, to me at least, the ham looks like it is rotten if it is bright green. lol The variations I have done on this have been tasty. It is basically a deviled egg with food coloring so you cant go wrong.
