Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

My favorite doctor (besides the Doctor, of course) is, and has always been, Dr. Seuss. Generations of children learned how to read with fantastical, whimsical classics like The Cat in the Hat and Hop on Pop. We learned to try new things alongside Sam I Am, we became aware of the environment thanks to the mistakes of the Onceler, we learned about the downfalls of tyranny with Yertle the Turtle. And when we grew up and had children of our own, we snuggled them up on our laps and explored our favorites again through their eyes.

March 2 marks the 109th birthday of our favorite children's author. Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Princess says her favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Sneetches. I'm thinking that will have to be a lunch theme for tomorrow maybe. For today she has The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham.

Cat is is a ham-and-cheese sandwich made with the CuteZCute sandwich cutter and stamp set. The famous hat is mozzarella cheese and tomato slices. She also has apple slices, a pink frosted cookie, strawberry chunks, and blueberries.

Green dyed hard boiled egg and ham fans - delicious!

For Bean, The Lorax and Horton Hatches the Egg.

She has Horton's speckled egg tucked into a nest of ham with star crackers around. She also has strawberry pieces and apple slices.

Ham-and-cheese Lorax sandwich, with a celery and frosted cookie Truffula tree and blueberry Barbaloot fruits.

  1. How did you dye the egg inside? I've only ever died the Easter eggs

    1. The same way, actually. I mixed together vinegar, water, and a few drops of food coloring and then dropped in a few eggs. I let it soak for a few minutes while I made the sandwiches, then I rinsed them with cold water and... done!

  2. Awesome. Thanks! I attempted to do your cat and the green egg and ham...yours looks better though :)

  3. I LOOOOVE, i pinned, I shared (^_^)
