But there's more, my friends. There was a trip to the local pub. The crowd was weird, with talk of rape drugs, Karate moms, and the Valley. So, after a couple of drinks, the husband and I walked home in the pouring rain, and sat by our fireplace drying off. Cozy.
But it gets better. There were leftovers. A nice chunk of corned beef and potatoes. So, I decided to make corned beef hash. When done right, one of my favorite breakfast dishes. And by right, I mean not from a gross can. I happened to mention my dinner plans to some friends, and they happened to stop by with a bottle of rosé. Also known as breakfast wine.
But breakfast is not really breakfast without eggs and pancakes. So, we had both. Fresh eggs from the above-mentioned friends, who recently got chickens. And Korean kimchi and squid pancakes. My best Korean pancakes to date. I also stir fried some yellow squash, shiitakes and onions. Just for the fun of it.
Everything was delicious. The fresh eggs were rich and pretty. The hash was hashy, in a good way. The squid and kimchi pancakes might have been my favorite, savory and light. And the vegetables, well, they were good for us. A pretty successful breakfast dinner, if I shall say so myself.
