  • One of the first things I ticked off my list of must-do’s when I arrived here was to find the best diner in the area and go and sit at the counter and eat breakfast all by myself. This reveals the fact that I am a slave to breakfast …. so this week is a treat for me! I have never made hash browns but I have eaten them and I adore them. I will certainly give them a whirl and my husband will probably love me even more as a result because he’s a slave to brekkie too (but don’t tell, he likes to pretend his racing snake physique is a result of careful eating when the truth is he’s got lucky genes!!)

    • haha, Osyth! Being a slave to breakfast is so wonderful! Much better than being a slave to chocolate which I nether admit or deny 🙂 I have a hubby with a raging metabolism & the lucky gene too! He says we are a perfect fit–I prepare the food & he eats it as I look on 🙂 Thanks, my friend ♥

  • I do love me some good hashed browns. I love sauteing some spinach quickly with crushed red pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon juice, then plopping that on the hashed browns with a fried egg. Oh Yumm! But please, can you just serve me that entire plate right now??? It all looks so down-home comforting right now. xo
