We always try to make green food on St. Patrick's Day. This one is my daughter's favorite.
-Peggy Hamilton

What You Need:

  • Green food coloring
  • Ingredients for scrambled eggs

What You Do:

  1. Make scrambled egg batter the way you normalyl would (we add a little milk or cottage cheese).
  2. Add a bit of green food coloring until you get a shade of green you like.
  3. Cook.
  4. Eat.
  5. We use this as a vehicle to talk about how much of our perception of food is visual, and how just because something looks different it doesn't necessarily taste bad. We try eating it with our eyes open and with our eyes closed. At first it was hard to eat, but now my daughter asks for colored eggs all year long, and we often try different colors.

A literature activity that works wonderful with this recipe for green eggs is to read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham. For school systems that use the Essential Curriculum this activity can be adapted as a "Reading to Perform a Task" lesson by making a step by step chart for cooking green eggs.
