A Splendiferous Dr. Seuss Breakfast

When my sister and I were young our mother used to make us green eggs and ham and we thought it was the coolest thing ever. It wasn’t for Dr. Seuss’ birthday…I’m pretty sure no one thought to celebrate it back then since he was still alive at the time. It was just a random green eggs and ham breakfast…and we loved it!

Dr. Seuss’s Birthday was on Wednesday March 02 and we celebrated with a splendiferous Green Eggs and Ham breakfast.
Splendiferous Dr Seuss Breakfast

We had green scrambled eggs and green vegetarian bacon (which we call “facon”) colored with food coloring. We had our bread butterside up and drank Moose Juice (orange juice) all foods that I mentioned here.

I set out place cards that read “Here”, “There”, and “Anywhere” that I printed out on cardstock using the Grinched font.

I put down a red tablecloth and polka dot birthday hats that I got at Target. I found the white and blue plates at Target in their Easter dinnerware section (available in store only). The lines are sort of squiggly and right away they reminded me of Thing 1 and Thing 2, so I thought they’d be perfect for our Seuss breakfast. I got the cute little Cat In The Hat cup for Adaline on Amazon using my Swagbucks so it was free 🙂

Adaline seemed to really enjoy her Seuss breakfast. She kept calling the eggs “broccoli-dot”, which is how she says “broccoli”…I’m not sure why she adds the “dot” to the end. Dot or not, she ate her green eggs 🙂 During breakfast she kept pointing to the book and saying “Ham!” and “Sammy-Sam” (Sam I Am). She seemed pretty excited about it.

The hats were actually left over from Adaline’s birthday party. I had bought them for the adults to wear, but nobody did…partypoopers 😦 Adaline didn’t leave her hat on for too long, but definitely longer than I expected!

Have you ever had Green Eggs and Ham?

  1. That’s really cute! 🙂 You should have invited Ben over for breakfast since it was his birthday too. I’m sure he would have worn one of your hats! haha


    • I know, I actually thought of inviting Ben over too…but I thought he had to work. And then I’d probably hear about how it’s so messed up that I celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday, but I’ve never had a party for him…
      I couldn’t handle the drama 😉

      I think he was the only one at Adaline’s party wearing a hat!


      • Haha he did have work, but it was in the afternoon. But you’re right, you would have never heard the end of it.
        “You love Dr. Suess more than you love me.” Blah, blah, blah. 😛


  2. Following from Friday Blog Hop – Would love a follow back!
    I loved Green Eggs and Ham – so did my girls when they were little. Dr Seuss offered so many good stories.
    Love to you

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kelly!
      I’ve always been a Seuss fan and I was so excited this past month when my daughter began to show interest in some of his books. I think we have many Seusslabrations in our future 🙂

      I’ll be visiting you soon!


  3. I love this! We’ll usually have green eggs and ham for St. Patricks, but I LOVE that you had a Dr. Seuss breakfast for your little girl. She is adorable, by the way. You are a great Mama. Happy I came across your blog. Janae


    • Hi, Janae…so glad that you found me 🙂
      I was thinking about whether or not I should repeat the Green Eggs and Ham for St. Patrick’s Day or try something else. I haven’t made my mind up yet. We loved when our mom would make us green eggs and ham when we were little so it was kind of a special moment for me to do that for my daughter.

      Thanks for stopping by, I’ll be visiting you soon!


  4. This is so cute. I think I’ll mark the Dr. Seuss birthday on my calendar and try some form of green eggs and ham next year! Now to find a natural way to color them that doesn’t ruin the flavors.


    • Thanks, Sharon! I’m so glad that you stopped by. I’m actually going to be looking into a bunch of different ways to make green eggs and ham for another post that I’ll (hopefully) be getting up this month. But off the top of my head I’ve heard of people using spinach, cilantro, or pesto to add green color 🙂


  5. I used to do that for my kids too

  6. Years ago when we did Atkins there was a recipe that was entitled green eggs and ham. It was broccoli and garlic sauted in olive oil and than you add the scrambled eggs,adding the ham near the end. The broccoli turns everything slightly green. You wouldn’t have to use food coloring anymore.

    See, your daughter really was on to something, calling it broccoli!
