Corn beef kind of weekend
When we decided to hang out on Saturday and watch the World Cup (god, I hated that buzzing sound) I tried to think of something either American or British to make for dinner. I checked out my Saveur Cooks Authentic American cookbook. There it was right in front of me. Corn beef and cabbage. *I* had that in the freezer just waiting to be made! I then read up on the subject of Corn beef and cabbage and found out that it was also a British thing long ago. So, it has nothing to do with the Irish and in fact some Irish people have never even tasted it. Really.
So dinner was good and we watched the game (the buzzing sound almost drove me insane...yes, I had to say it again). This isn't why I blog this though. It was the next morning that made this humble corn beef blog worthy. One of my favorite foods in the world is corn beef hash. Yes, I even get my beloved egg on top.
I took the leftover corn beef and left over potatoes and fried this puppy up.
Poached an egg (which I hadn't done for years)
There you have it. One tasty breakfast.
