Scrambled Green Eggs and Ham

Dr. Seuss’ birthday is coming up on Friday March 2.  My mom has the same birthday as Dr. Seuss, which I think is great because she is a kindergarten teacher.  I loved reading Dr. Seuss books as a kid, they were the  one of the starts of my love of reading.  I want to continue that tradition with my son Aaron and we have already read him a few Dr. Seuss books.   
When I was a kid, Green Eggs and Ham was one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.  I like the idea of making food that goes with a story that you’ve just read.  I think it allows kids to interact more with the book and learn more from it.  I would like to do that with my son when he is older.  In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, I made my version of green eggs and ham.  Since I only like scrambled eggs, I scrambled the eggs with diced ham and added green food coloring.  This is a great way to get children involved in reading. 
Scrambled Green Eggs and Ham

6 large eggs
1/8 cup soy milk (can substitute regular milk)
1/4 cup diced ham
3 drops green food coloring
1 tablespoon butter

1.    Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the soy milk, diced ham, and green food coloring. Continue whisking until all mixed. Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter.  Pour the eggs into the skillet and scramble them while they cook.  Cook until they begin to brown.
