It takes more than just man or machine to wake me from a deep, blissful slumber.
It takes a force of nature.
I couldn't go back to bed this morning due to our little tremblement de terre in the early hours of the morn. I tossed, I turned, I mulled over my nightmare about Armageddon, I fantasized about my immiment move to the Midwest (farmer's markets! decorating my kitchen bright red! icons in the place! yeahhhh!!!). But when you can't sleep, and you have the rare opportuity to wake up beautifully early, what else is there to do? Pop in a Dr. Who DVD, fold laundry, and get something simmerin' on the stove for breakfast.

Get Cookin Ladies!
1) Fry bacon over low-medium heat.
2) Add chopped green onions and minced garlic, freshly ground pepper, spices, and mixy mixy.
4) Sharing is caring, so serve up to your favourite people....but only your favourite people. Like me.
Fry or poach an egg and serve on top of the hashed browns, cracking the yolk and letting the yolk stream throughout. Delish, les amies.
This yields about 2 heaping servings, and results in a somewhat creamy, heavenly hashed brown. I haven't quite gotten them to brown yet--perhaps I need to add the taters first? Try a different kind of tater altogether? Any suggestions, ladies?
PS: I promise to resolve my shitty camera situation.
