EoMEoTE#10 – The Cat in the Hat hits town

by Jeanne on August 26, 2005

in EoMEoTE

I’m your host

With the most –

Will you bring me eggs on toast?

You can get them from a can,

You can fry them in a pan,

You can put them on a flan.

With a man

Called Stan.

Use your hands, use your legs –

Who cares – just make toast and eggs!!

It’s the end of the month and you know what that means…  It’s time for the End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza!  Despite seriously considering a Beowulf theme, in the end I relented and went with the redoubtable Dr Seuss, he of Green Eggs and Ham fame.  See – it’s easy!! 

Let your imagination run totally wild, but just remember the two fundamental rules:

1. There must be eggs.

2. There must be carbohydrates (bread, crackers, potatoes, pancakes, waffles… I’m not picky!)

Make it, snap it, eat it, blog it – sometime before next weekend would be good.  Then send me an e-mail or a link (I’m afraid I don’t feel a ripple in the Force every time an entry is posted…!) and I’ll include you in the roundup.  For neophytes, here’s a potted history, and here’s the Harry Potter roundup from last time.

So go!!  Find a bloke named Stan and get cooking!! ;-)

Now this I can so *totally* do! I may have to borrow some of Alex’s books for inspiration…don’t worry; I’ll wait till he’s asleep. I’m a good Mom, I am.


Andrew August 26, 2005 at 8:25 pm

wot?! No ripple in the force on each entry – you are missing out love…


Lady Amalthea August 28, 2005 at 4:43 am

Yay! Something fun and exciting and kid-inspired (just like the delightful Harry Potter theme)! I’ll do my best to participate and think up something fun.


sarah August 28, 2005 at 8:55 pm

I am so tempted to render Al Pacino from his Oscar-buying role onto a pancake or perhaps a corn tortilla that I could later sell on eBay, since he might look like Jesus…and dye some eggs green and serve up “Green Eggs and Ham,” but the fact is, my printer is out of ink and it’s not feasible.
So just let your imagination picture my version of “Green Eggs and Ham” for a few moments.
I’d seriously like to do something about this, since this book is all the rage with the toddler in our house right now. Oh, the commentary we manage to sneak in about organic eggs and celebrity gossip.
I am so glad I found your lovely blog. Especially the farmers market bit.

I have attempted a bit of egg and bread. I have also attempted a literary masterpiece (er, maybe not). I couldn’t find Stan, though.
I look forward to Beowulf month.


Stephen August 30, 2005 at 4:06 pm

Hey there Jeanne…more fun as usual!…no problem getting my eggs to go green (with a little spinach and zucchini mixed in) but damned if I could find any green ham…so fell back on lobster as usual (here in Maine they grow on trees!)…considered Photoshopping a green eggs and lobster concoction but rhyming with lobster (aside from mobster) is a tough one…anyway, here it is: http://www.stephencooks.com/2005/08/lobster_zucchin.html
Thanks again for hosting EoMEoTE!

EoMEoTE: Greens, Eggs, and Ham

Did you say green, eggs, and ham?Happy to oblige. And no, you cannot have them in a house but in a magasin. Three guesses?


ejm August 30, 2005 at 11:36 pm

Whoohoo!! I might even make more than mayonnaise with the eggs for this one.

Hey there:
I finally worked up a posting for EoMEoTE. I’m so excited!
Thanks for doing this, again and again.


Ruth September 1, 2005 at 6:32 pm

What a fun choice. Here’s my version of green eggs – no ham and I couldn’t resist throwing in a favorite from my childhood that wasn’t green but tasted delicious. You can check it out at www DOT 4everykitchen DOT com
Thanks for thinking this one up.


Ruth September 1, 2005 at 6:36 pm

Still a newbie at leaving links in comments so I thought I’d try one more time. Hope this is not offensive.


sarah September 1, 2005 at 11:24 pm

Zoe September 2, 2005 at 10:59 am

Would you eat it in the rain? In the dark? Down a drain?
I do not like green eggs and ham – custard tart’s more where I am …


ejm September 2, 2005 at 4:26 pm

Well, that was fun! And much easier than the sonnet version….


sam September 3, 2005 at 4:23 am

Here it is and thanks for hosting:


Moira September 19, 2005 at 8:28 pm

I really don’t think I could be any later with this entry. And it’s not really an entry, just a Seuss-ravage, really. Gawd, I’m even later than Anthony…;-)….please forgive me!


Sue | Cater July 16, 2009 at 8:12 am

Wouldn’t it be really funny to have green eggs and have you got to just love Dr Seuss, this just brought back childhood memories thank you. :)
