Yesterday was Dr. Seuss’ birthday. This isn’t something I expect the majority of the population to know but if you are an elementary school teacher, you know (except me who had to ask). During the day a conversation came up between a co-worker and I. She said that it is tradition at her house to eat green eggs on March 2nd to celebrate. She also said her middle school child still loves green eggs after all these years. I inquired about how she made them green and she told me food coloring.
I started thinking, there had to be a better way. I mean you can’t protect a child from ever having dyes and chemicals in their food but to actually put a dye into their meal, I don’t know that that’s a good thing. So today I messed around for about five minutes and wound up with naturally green eggs.
Got your 3 x5 index card ready? First you take two cups of spinach and put it in a food processor. Pulse the spinach until it is in little chunks (scraping down the side two or three times). Then add three eggs to the food processor. Move those blades until the liquid is frothy and green. Pour the frothy green liquid into a cast iron skillet. From this point you go like you would normal scrambled eggs. I added some salt and pepper, onions and red pepper to mine. I then put it on seven grain toast and ate a green egg sandwich. It is that simple. Any Dr. would be proud (even one whose specialty is ludicrous rhymes).
If you don’t know who Rita Ora is, you should. She is a 21 year old UK artist who recently signed to Roc Nation (yep, Jay-Z is a fan)/Columbia Records. Her latest single “R.I.P” features Tinie Tempah and is a funeral for a failed relationship. “R.I.P” makes it easy to see why Rita Ora is exploding right now. It combines the move your feet feel of a club with a catchy chorus. Keep an eye on Rita, oh the places she will go.
