Each year we celebrate Dr. Seuss day on (or near) his birthday, March 2nd. This year we decided that we would do a The Cat in the Hat lunch. We had a few ideas, a few obstacles and a whole lot of fun!
Our main entree is a fish sandwich. Since it is Friday during lent, we can't have meat (so no ham for green eggs and ham). We decided to go with the The Cat in the Hat theme right away. We made a good old peanut butter and jelly sandwich and used our "uncrustable" cutter on it. Then we added a piece of cheese and drew the fish from The Cat in the Hat on the top....see, a fish sandwich. tee hee!
Our vegetable side is grape tomatoes skewered with pieces of string cheese on a plastic lollipop stick to create a The Cat in the Hat replica hat.
Our fruit side is a Thing 1 and Thing 2 apple. We halved the apple and cut a circle out of the skin, then used our food safe gel color and a tooth pick to create the logos seen on the Things shirts.
Finally, our Fun Friday treat is The Cat in the Hat cookies! We dunked Nutter Butters in white chocolate and piped the details with red and dark chocolates.
