Green Eggs & Ham

I promise this will not turn into a food blog. I don't have enough good recipes for that anyway. The recipe I'm posting today was one of those come-home-from-church-and-raid-the-fridge kind of recipes. Then I realized how it looked, and that tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, and I thought I'd share.

I wasn't sure how this would taste, but I was willing to give it a go - I make up recipes all the time, and have about a 75% success rate. James liked it, I liked it, and Wendy really liked it, so it's a keeper!

Green Eggs & Ham
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (or about 3/4 cup frozen chopped onion)
1 cup diced ham
1 zucchini, diced or minced (your preference)
6 eggs
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

In a large skillet, saute the onion in the olive oil. When the onion is tender, add ham and cook until slightly browned. Add zucchini; cook and stir until zucchini is tender. Add 6 eggs, and stir to scramble all together. When eggs are almost set, stir in cheddar cheese. Cook until done. Sprinkle with additional cheese to serve.

I love zucchini! I have been finding so many great zucchini recipes, that I will have to grow my own this year!

BTW, one of my roommates (in my single years) made green eggs for St. P's day just with eggs and food coloring. She peed green for a few days - eww!
