Funny how a particular dish can bring back a flood of memories. This one is quite innocent and pure. It involves my days as a Sitter. One of my favorite tasks; perhaps, I shouldn’t call it task, because I enjoyed reading to the tiny tots, it didn’t feel like work. One of the books was Dr. Seuss’s ‘Green Eggs & Ham.’
The children would harp “Read it again!” I believe Dr. Seuss real name was Theodor Seuss Gersel. He was born in on March 2, 1904.Although he passed in 1991, his stories still come alive by children and adults alike.
I guess his birthday was on my mind as I prepped and cooked green eggs without the ham. Although I didn’t have ham in-house, I was determined to cook green eggs. With that inspiration in mind, I reached for the main ingredients:
First, I sautéed kale in a little olive oil flavored with finely chopped onions and crushed garlic. This was then added to food processor along with a generous handful of parsley. To that, I added a drizzle of olive oil and made a quick pesto mimicking the green.
With a little olive oil and pat of butter in skillet, I did a scrabble with two eggs under low heat. A piece of gouda cheese was added for a creamy and added flavor. This melted in a couple of minutes. Pesto was then stirred in with scrambled eggs. Dr. Seuss would’ve approved.
Served green eggs with chopped tomatoes and toasted English muffins.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
