Green Eggs and Ham

Try them! Try them! (I say)

A couple of months ago I had dinner at the Salty Sow in Austin. On their menu they have several things that are “jarred” (served in jelly jars). There was a chicken liver mousse, a fresh salmon rillette and green eggs and ham. I never saw what the green eggs and ham looked like but this is my take on Dr. Seuss’s green eggs and ham.

So……. i’m thinking ……..

Do you like
green eggs and ham!
I do not like them,
Sam-I-am.
I do not like green eggs and ham.

You do not like them.
So you say.
Try them! Try them
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.

Sam!
If you will let me be,
I will try them.
You will see.

Say!
I like green eggs and ham!
I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!
I would eat them in a boat.
And I would eat them with a goat

I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good, so good, you see!

So I will eat them in a box.
And I will eat them with a fox.
And I will eat them in a house.
And I will eat them with a mouse.
And I will eat them here and there.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

I do so like
green eggs and ham!
Thank you!
Thank you,
Sam-I-am!

So, I hope you will try my version of green eggs and ham and then say ” I do so like green eggs and ham”. Thank you! Thank You!
