poached eggs and hash browns: inspired in part by a true champion

Posted by ernie on March 31, 2008

that’s right, after last week’s visit to the home of someone who can actually cook, i was left with the desire to make poached eggs. i’ve always enjoyed poached eggs – and poaching eggs – but struggled to find a good use. my sister-in-law was able to do so, and sarah and i were lucky enough to be there.

but this is not that.

this is this.

i don’t think i told you about my crepes.  i made them a few weeks ago.  and here is their tale.

i had the desire for a pancake breakfast.  but pancakes would not do.  yes, i’m aware of how little sense that makes, but i’m hoping you understand.  you wake up and you think, man i really want some of that creamy doughie goodness, but not the heaviness.  so what’s a hungry person to do?

crepes.

Posted by ernie on February 24, 2008

so there we were. a lazy saturday morning, putting off getting up for as long as we possible could. and that’s when she said it. those 4 fateful words.

“wanna make hash browns?”

“oh hellz yeah,” i thought. “i’m all up ons.”

of course what i actually said was “great idea honey, and some scrambled eggs to boot.” but when i write the movie of my life, it’ll come out that first way.

eggs for breakfast

i started the day by sleeping till noon. that’s a good start. when you’re in bed that long the only things that really get you up are hunger, the progressively increasing necessity to scratch various parts of your body, and the overwhelming stink of your own mouth. the problem then becomes how to remedy all of these things and in what order.

us vs. hunger: day 1

Posted by ernie on February 20, 2008

pancakes

well this is it. the first of many. i guess i should explain. it’s chocolate chip pancakes. sarah (the other half of “us”) and i made them a couple of days ago. turns out she got to some of them before i did, so these didn’t make much of a breakfast. regardless, believe me when i tell you they taste better than they look.
