Good day everyone!
We had green eggs for breakfast this morning in honor of the day. A little idea I stole borrowed from Dr. Mom Online. Her eggs turned out much more green than mine, but it was fun anyway!
I used 8 eggs (farm fresh from Rolling Hills Farm) and about 5 spoons full of zucchini pesto (I had some in the freezer from last time I made it). Then I just fixed them like I would any scrambled eggs.
Note: The picture does not do the eggs justice. They were definitely more green than they appear. That being said, just add more pesto for more ‘green’.
My 2 year old was not having the eggs. However, I took her toast away and wouldn’t let her have anymore until she took one bite of eggs. She finally gave in and took a bite. She got her toast back, but then it just sat on the plate while she ate the eggs! She loved them. My boy loved them too. He said, “I love these eggs! Can you make them like this every time you make eggs?”
We will continue our St. Patrick’s Day later with some studying on the holiday and what it’s all about. The study will include how much dye is used to dye the Chicago River and whether or not it is good for the fish. (By the way, according to this site, they use 40lbs of vegetable dye)
I hope you enjoy your day!
