Cream Soup and Char

Quirky challenged me to write a re-do of Green Eggs and Ham, and well, I accepted her challenge! She's already posted hers earlier today and did a wonderful job of it, I suggest you go and check out what she's writ! Unfortunately mine doesn't rhyme anywhere near so nicely as hers does, but in my defense, it's incredibly hard to incorporate the food items on our menu with a Dr. Seuss By the way, tell Quirky I sent you if you haven't been there yet :D

Green Eggs and Ham, changed to Cream Soup and Char

By Dr. Seuss and transposed to work for work by Skye :D

I are Skye 
I are Skye 
Skye I are 

That Skye-I-are!
That Skye-I-are!
I do not like
that Skye-I-are! 

Do you like
Cream soup and Char?

I do not like them,
I do not like
Cream soup and Char.

Baked Onion Soup,
Sirloin Steak?

Teriyaki Chicken 
I do not like them,

Would you like them
in a house?
Would you like them
with a mouse?

I do not like them 
in a house.
I do not like them 
with a mouse.
I do not like Cream soup and Char.
I do not like them, Skye-I-are.

Would you, could you
In a car?
Eat them! Eat them!
Here they are.

You may like them.
You will see.
You may like them
in a tree!

I would not, could not in a tree.
Not in a car! You let me be.

A Wrap! A Wrap!
A Wrap! A Wrap!
Could you, would you,
Eat a Wrap?

Won’t eat that crap! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! Skye! Let me be!

In the dark?
We keep it dark!
Would you, could you, in the dark?

I would not, could not,
in the dark.

Would you, could you, in the rain?

I would not, could not,
in the rain.
You do not like
Cream soup and Char?

I do not
like them,

I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them ANYWHERE!

I do not like
Cream soup
and Char!

I do not like them,

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

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

I like Cream soups and Char!
I do! I like them, Skye-I-are!
Perhaps I’d like Baked Onion Soup,
Sirloin Steak, Teriyaki Chicken Caesar,
Jambalaya, Quesadilla!

And 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!

And I will eat them here and there.
Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

I do so like
Cream soups and Char!
Thank you!
Thank you,


  1. Good job, Skye-I-are. I've seen Quirky's version and it's also great.

    Dessert, dessert, dessert in the lurch.

    Huh? ;-)

  2. Thanks Reffie! That is great praise indeed!

    I like Quirky's version as well, I do believe that she won this challenge :) (That is if one or the other actually can win

    Anyway aside from the Arctic Char, everything I've listed here is something that we make at the restaurant where I work. I had wanted to put in something to do with the fact that the Cream Soups don't have any dairy in them and the butter for the lobster is really margarine, but I couldn't make any of it work out :(

    It worked out well enough though, so thanks again for the compliments :)

  3. Hey Reffie,

    Artic Char is a type of fish found in both fresh and salt water if memory serves. I believe it's related to the Salmon, and it likes very cold waters. Whether it's found in the Antartic or not I really don't know, but it is all over the Arctic Countries. I hope that helps :)

    Thanks Minka, I hope that means that you enjoyed the post! :)

  4. I'm so glad you changed your mind about quesadillas.

    It would be so so wrong if you hated quesadillas.

    Cheese. Mmmm. Cheese!

    heh heh

    GREAT JOB and it wasn't a winning kind of contest it was just two bloggers playing!

    And you done great!

  5. Good thing you explained what char is. I thought you meant Cher's twin.

  6. Thanks Quirky, that means a lot coming from you! I knew it wasn't really a winning kind of a thing, if that were the case, I wouldn't have agreed to As for the Quesadilla's, well, I've always loved them, it's the guy who doesn't like "Skye I are" that didn't like them but changed his mind :D Again, thank you very much :)

    By the way, if you had not gone the way of the Zombie, I'd have to admit I'd have been disappointed, as it is though, your's is absolutely awesome!!!

    Ha ha haaa Deb, that's a good one! Char as Cher's twin, I love it!


I've decided to use comment moderation simply because that way, I never miss a new comment on my posts. I'm really quite forgetful and tend to not remember how many comments had been in each post the last time I looked, so please bare with me and my memory lapses :)
