Green Eggs and Ham
This has to be the most famous Dr. Seuss inspired dish. Scramble a few eggs, add a couple of drops of blue food coloring to the mixture and cook as usual. You can serve a warmed up slice of ham with it, and if you want to go all out, brush the ham with a little green food coloring. Try adding either biscuits or mashed potatoes with this dish. Add a little food coloring (either green or a complementary color like red) to the biscuit dough or the finished mashed potatoes for even more fun.
Pink Ink for The Yink
The Yink in “One Fish, Two Fish” love to drink pink ink. Make your own version by combining a few strawberries (either fresh or frozen and thawed) and some milk in a blender. Add a few drops of red food coloring if the “ink” isn’t pink enough.
This snack was inspired by “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.” Prepare several different colors of Jello according to package directions and pour each flavor into a shallow pan. Use a fish-shaped cookie cutter to cut the Jello into fish shapes. (If you don’t have a fish-shaped cookie cutter you could also just cut fish shapes with a knife.) You can also add small pieces of fruit to the Jello mixture before it cools. This is a great way to sneak an extra serving of fruit.
