Green Eggs: Food Tricks for April Fool’s Day
Are you planning any April Fool’s Day tricks or treats? We made a whole day of it last year, so we’ll probably let it go this year (although…watch out! You never know…). But we still think that the kitchen is one of the best places to have a little fun on April Fool’s. Here a look at some of our past April Fool’s silliness, and a few new ideas too.
The “shrunken breakfast” from Martha Stewart is actually awfully cute. Just use cocktail toasts and quail eggs for mini eggs-on-toast:
It’s definitely more appetizing than green eggs and ham, anyway!
We really do not like food tricks that lead to waste, like the old “salt in the sugar bowl” thing, or even colored milk — which generally gets thrown out. So unappetizing!
But here are a few more April Fool’s ideas that are quite good to eat.
You can see all of our April Fool’s fun from last year here too. Win a date with Jamie Oliver, put Rachael Ray on your backsplash, grow spaghetti, and culinary ghosts:
And in the end, if you just don’t want to do anything silly, try a delicious rhubarb fool instead. It’s a great way to welcome spring, no joke.
