It’s a really simple breakfast I crave at times. Fried egg with leftover chinese rice, regular HEINZ ketchup, and spicy sausages.. It’s just so delicious. I crave these spicy sausages (not exactly high quality artisanal blah blah blah) because I grew up as a young girl grilling these outside with my dad and it was always delicious over rice. Memories have this tricky way of sending cravings up your head … the same thing you eat 20 years later just doesn’t taste as good! But still you crave it.
The secret to this bland, ridiculously simple dish is fried eggs of course, but also you must salt the scrambled eggs before they go into the fryer. And it’s all about the butter, I added butter to this rice along with fish sauce. You always need fish sauce. It’s like that thing in the background which is kind of like MSG…”Why does this taste so good!”
I need this freedom to be able to make what I want, on the fly. For this luxury I bring an electrice stove, everywhere, like at the office for example.. It’s a thing of beauty. You should realize that you’re not going to get another chance to live. We only have this one life, and whatever it is that you are craving in the morning…Well I fully encourage you to make it. Every meal should be worth posting about or discussing, no matter how fancy or slapdash your meals are.
I recently read this article on the Cut about an instagram account called “YOU DID NOT EAT THAT”. It’s basically an account that mocks fashion bloggers and their perfectly styled 90 wrist bracelets with 20 stacked macarons. So why is this woman, or man, whose behind this account mocking them? You can’t be sure that these girls aren’t eating pizza or hamburgers on the regular. But there are a lot of people that doubt it. The concept of buying macarons only to take a picture of it is nonsensical to me. I could never even think to do such a thing, because back in the day, like 7-8 years ago when macarons were only for the food obsessed (fringe population back then)…I actually ate the entire box of them. I never thought to buy something just for a photo op. But then again, nobody had instagram back then either.
As I said, the concept of buying macarons, period, in 2014, is cheesy. They’re like skittles. Next up? You can buy mini macarons in a vending machine. I guarantee it.
Fried eggs, rice, and sausages…This is like, typical man eating food I think. It’s what men would cook, if they were hungry and they had absolutely no other choice. There was no woman around to prep something “gorge” looking like a designer kale salad and marinated steak or whatever. You could argue that there are men who are food obsessed, ones that love to cook… Just a personal choice here but men who take fancy photos of food and post it on their grams all day? UNLESS they are like restauranteurs, gay, food bloggers, or bar owners..then they’re exempt…But most of the time…. I’m just not into it. My dad does NOT know his way around the kitchen. He gets nervous with simple ramen stove cooking. I LOVE THIS ABOUT HIM and always will. I love that he unceremoniously throws a fit at my mom, and yells at her for NOT doing the dishes, something I saw growing up all the time. I love that he’s kinda chauvinistic in this way. Whenever my mom would get resentful about it, I’d be like….“MOM, it’s so unattractive to me when men get in the kitchen and like, act all gourmet…it’s like that scene in SATC when Charlotte gets creeped out by the dude who can’t even kill a mouse in the kitchen!”….I love when men can’t put a sandwich together, I love when they can’t do dishes, and I love when they stay out of my godamn way when I’m in the kitchen. Pal, you have NO IDEA who you are dealing with.
