If I got you right, the following does the job:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%begin of myfile.tex%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%


\outer\def\putstuffoverthere#1#2{\immediate\write\blue{#1,& #2!\cr}}



{\catcode`@=11 \halign{#&#\cr\input bluefile }}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%end of myfile.tex%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

If you don't need the \catcode`@=11, the example above can
work without it.
