Home Fries...


We've had a pretty exhausting week here in our household. A few weeks back we got a puppy... on a whim, actually. We visited our local Humane Society and it just so happened that they had a litter of three terrier/mix puppies available. Although, he looks more like a beagle/shepherd mix to us.

Anyway, the lack of sleep is catching up to my husband and I... big time!

He's cute... and I wasn't raised with animals, so that's saying something! We decided to call him Stanley... Manly Stanley.

My youngest daughter was involved in a summer music program and performed at one of the hotels in Waikiki this past Friday. It was a long, long, long afternoon! Plus, her muumuu was bothering her... that just added to the crankiness! On a bright note... they sounded great and looked adorable in their aloha wear and leis.

So, needless to say, I was so wanting some comfort food this weekend. Home fries, for me, are a comfort food. My dad would cook them up almost every weekend morning. I love having them as a side at dinner too. Usually, though, I fry up an over easy egg and warm a flour tortilla to go with my home fries.

It's heaven... It truly, truly is.

I bet you want to know what heaven tastes like, don't you? I thought so. Keep on reading...
