Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday. David had snack day, so we made some treats that matched a couple of his books. We made green eggs and ham with two pretzel sticks, a little bit of white chocolate melted on the sticks. Then I added a green sixlet candy to the chocolate.
The Lorax guys are made from a Nutter Butter cookie. I added candy eyes (to make them stick, I used some of the melted white chocolate leftovers from the pretzels.) Then I added a yellow frosting mustache.
For dinner, we had pancakes that were turned into the Cat in the Hat hat. I used Redi-whip and strawberries to add the accents to the pancake.
Basic pancake recipe:
1 1/3 cup flour
1 1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons softened or melted butter.
Whisk together and pour in a heated skillet.
Only one of the kids wanted to have the green eggs. I just scambled some eggs with a little green food gel.
