Do You Like Green Eggs & Ham?

Would you try them in a muffin tin? Would you eat them with a grin?
Sprout did! She ate them with a grin. 
Her Seuss inspired green eggs & ham were a win! 

Muffin Tin Monday! I decided to participate in the unofficial Dr. Seuss theme. Here is Sprout's Seussilicious muffin tin meal:

Goldfish grahams with a couple of gummy fish represent One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. The Cat in the Hat's iconic red & white striped hat is made of mozarella & gala apple slices. The 3 cheese trees (with tree trunk bento picks) are from Fox in Socks, & have chocolate sprinkles for fleas :)


The Cat in the Hat's Thing 1 and Thing 2 are made of strawberries with mozzarella heads and chocolate sprinkle faces, topped with cream cheese (coloured blue) for their crazy hair.


Sprout had to have Green Eggs (scrambled of course, that's how she prefers her eggies - fine with me, it's much easier to colour scrambled eggs!) and Ham (dyed green by soaking it in a dish of water and food colouring while the eggs cooked). And green tapioca Oobleck, ew!


And just like the Yink, they had pink ink to drink (strawberry milk).
Here's Sprout eating her green eggs & ham :) 


Happy (early) Birthday Dr. Seuss!

This was such a fun tin to make! Birdie & Sprout knew right away what the theme was. They loved the tin as a whole, they just weren't completely keen on everything in it. Even though I assured them that the Oobleck was just pudding with food colouring, they wouldn't touch it ... but I have to admit it didn't look very appetizing... The thing that I thought they wouldn't like - the green ham - Sprout gobbled up with without hesitation - go figure! Birdie didn't get any ham, she's gone off meat again - but she did eat all her egg :)
