Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

One of my favorite quotes is from Dr. Seuss...

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

That's something every current and former (raises hand) chubby people pleaser needs to commit to memory. Methinks.

Today is his birthday and for years as a teacher I would make Green Eggs and Ham in the classroom to celebrate. Here's the grown up version I make. I made a slightly different version this morning to celebrate:

Shelly's Green Eggs and Ham

1 Green Onion, diced
3 slices Ham (Boars Head Cold Cut), diced
4 Eggs, beaten
2 Tablespoons Store bought Pesto Sauce

Saute onion and ham. Pour eggs over and scramble. When almost cooked add dollops of pesto and scramble in.

I did a report on him in college. did you know he wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet that he couldn't write a book using 50 words or less...but he did...he uses less than 50 words in GEAH...all the repeating helps...lol.
