Do you like green eggs & ham?
I do! I do! I do like Green Eggs & Ham! Well, perhaps not green ham, but green eggs, yes ma'am I do.
That Sam I Am may have drove the poor grouchy looking fella nuts in one of my favorite books, but I must say, That Sam I Am was really on to something!
Green eggs that is.
|Our rainbow of eggs|
|My two favorite colors, dark brown & the pretty sea green egg....wish the colors showed up better.|
Granted, only the shells of my eggs are green…the yolks being a rich yellow/orange shade… If I had a critter of an unknown species hounding me to try eggs with green yolks the odds are good I would have become hostile, so I can’t say I blame ol’ grouchy for being annoyed!
Not to mention the green meat to boot!! I'm positive I would have passed on green meat of any variety..
But.....I can also sympathize with That poor Sam I Am…..
Had you be given the task of marketing green yolked eggs, you too would have had come up with catchy scenarios & rhymes to try and have your product sampled..
Now, if only That Sam I Am had what I have…green eggs truly worth marketing.
My 6 year old daughter was home from school with a respiratory infection and wanted one of her favorite foods for breakfast…. “Slimey eggs cooked the easy way” Which translates into fried eggs, over easy.
She wanted 3 eggs, one dark brown, one white and one green…so I went out to visit the chickens and see what they had to offer. Luck was with me, we had a beautiful green egg.
Cracked it open and much to my surprise, look what I found:
Yep, not only is my green egg far superior to those conjured up by the great Dr. Suess, it’s also double yolked! How cool is that?!?
BTW- My daughter claims that green shelled, double yolked egg perfection was the very best “Slimey egg cooked the easy way” ever!
Eat your heart out Dr. Suess!
