Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! {and Yink’s Pink Ink Drink}

March 2nd, 2012 · 3 Comments

We’re big fans of Dr. Seuss around here. The boy has been looking forward to PBS Kids’ Cat-in-the-Hat-a-thon all week — and, he even has the day off school so he can camp out in front of the tv in his pjs to watch. Meanwhile, I made a Seuss breakfast: Lorax pancakes, green eggs and ham, and pink ink. You know, of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish:

This one, I think, is called a Yink.
He likes to wink, he likes to drink.
He likes to drink, and drink, and drink.
The thing he likes to drink is ink.
The ink he likes to drink is pink.
He likes to wink and drink pink ink. — Dr. Seuss

This breakfast smoothie is fast to whip up. And the best part — it’s all natural, no food dyes needed.

natural green eggs and ham

What’s the most read Dr. Seuss book in your house? Ours is probably Green Eggs in Ham, but One Fish Two Fish gets a lot of air time as well. Most exciting is that the boy is just about ready to start reading them to us — can’t wait!

    What a great breakfast in terms of healthiness and fun. I think we’ll have to read a Dr. Seuss book to the kids and have the colorful meal – sure looks more appetizing than green eggs and ham 😉

    It looks so delicious. Dr. Seuss is a good idea I think. I will try it. Thank you.
