I thought I was making a rare in-road towards Mom Of The Year, not only cooking my kids a hot breakfast but also linking it to one of their favorite books. Little did I know that I was opening a can of worms, so to speak, since my little brood (do two qualify as a brood?) was not satisfied with mere GREEN eggs and ham.
So in case any of the rest of you have the type of kids that always want a little something extra, whose creativity in their requests knows no bounds, be forewarned:
1) "Blue" eggs turn out green again, since yellow + blue = green. I think multiple bottles of blue food coloring would be required to actually turn eggs blue.
2) "Purple" eggs are really more of a yucky brown.
3) Yellow eggs are pointless.
4) "Pink" eggs really turn out more orange. I'm sure you can figure out the legistics of why. Pinkish-orange eggs look really disgusting, like raw guts. (Or as someone else said, a little reassuringly, like shrimp.) Even I had trouble convincing myself that they really tasted the same as regular eggs.
