I’m going to try my hardest not to talk to you about how excited I am about fall TV shows. I mean…Scandal, Parenthood, Downton Abbey, The Mindy Show!! I can’t. Growing up, starting school in fall felt like The New Year to me. New clothes/new school supplies/new shows! UGH. My heaven, seriously. Back then it was all about Felicity, Roswell and Dawson’s Creek.
Even though I was just as obsessed with TV back then as I am now, my TV-watching was limited. My parents were super strict about the TV and I was only allotted one hour a night, so I had to be VERY choosy. I had no TV in my room–wasn’t allowed! And a lot of nights my brother and I had to come to an agreement as to what we’d watch for our one hour of TV. Looking back I have no idea if watching less TV made me smarter or more connected to real humans. I honestly have no idea. I just no at the time it was torture! Well, I’m an adult now; I can eat alllll the Twinkies I want while watching all the TV I want. YES!
I’m an unbalanced breakfast eater. I either want a stack of pancakes with bacon and orange juice and, like, a strong spicy bloody mary…or nothing at all. I’m talking like a cup of coffee, while eating two stale tootsie rolls and scrolling through breakfast. I want dreamy breakfast or miserable breakfast. Nothing in between!
This is why this dish, to me, is dinner. The good news is that it sort of works for any time of day. It’s a good “anytime” meal. Buy the ingredients, have them on hand and make it when you feel like. It’s like a unisex shirt, it just works for everyone.
Hello there! Hi! Hai! This is what I like to call a major post. Three recipes all in one.
Think of it like a dinner party menu, all inspired by my favorite meal of the day: breakfast. There’s doughnuts, fancy popcorn (I eat this for breakfast), and a potato and chick pea hash cooked in duck fat. Holy moly! YES!
I made this for my friends. I honestly don’t have many dinner parties because I live in a teeny-tiny place and going out to restaurants is a serious hobby of mine. BUT last week was different; it was nice outside, I had rosé chilling in the fridge and I decided to make some breakfast for dinner.
We sat outside, we gossiped, we laughed. This all means summer is all up in our faces…and I’m excited about it. Aren’t you?!
