On Wednesday morning Monkey wasn’t feeling well but she decided she wanted green eggs and ham instead of the ham and cheese omelette I wanted to make. She also begged to help. I figured I’d let her try cracking the eggs for the first time.
You can see from the picture above that the first egg ended up on the floor. I didn’t get mad, I just told her that it’s ok and we have all cracked a few eggs the wrong way. I helped her crack the rest and Little Man got to help crack one, too. Another cool experiment with this breakfast was that she got to see how blue and yellow makes green.
We used 8 eggs and about 5 drops of blue food coloring to get the color that we did. I try not to use a ton of food dyes or buy foods with dyes in them anymore, but we are trying to be a family of moderation and a few drops here or there are ok to us. The kids were excited to have their green eggs and ham.
Just ignore Monkey’s face, as I said, she was not feeling well. She ate her eggs up with no problem and half of her toast. She didn’t even touch the ham. The boys loved the meal that their sister and I made.
