Green Eggs and Ham

David's birthday breakfast request: Yes, my boy is 17, but he does enjoy a bit of whimsy! Without David, life would be much less ... er ... interesting.

If you ever feel like eating Suessically, I have a few tips for you.
I starting painting the ham with food coloring, but it was too dark. Then I painted it with dye mixed with water, but that was too slow. Then I dipped each slice in dye and water, and it was just right! (If you have them, wear gloves or you may have green fingers for a long time. In fact, I got dirtiest while opening the bottle of green.)To get just the right shade, I colored the eggs with some blue dye before adding more green drops. Have fun!
