My Brillant Idea Dinner

It's 9pm and I'm just eating dinner. Hmm, naughty, naughty I think.

It's been one of those weird days where I just stayed too busy to be hungry. Have you ever done that? I even fed the kiddos around 6 and that didn't make me hungry.

But now I'm hungry.

My normal go-to meal when I just need to feed myself is scrambled eggs with stuff. Kind of a scrambled omelet if you get what I mean. It's got to have little hash browns though or it's just not good.

I freaked out when I realized that there weren't any in the freezer. There was not a single bag of little frozen, cubed up hash browns to be found anywhere. I even went so far as to put the eggs and pan away. (I know I'm weird like that if I can't have what I want)

Suddenly it hit me! What about french fries? You know those frozen strips of potatoes disguised as a possible vegetable side dish in the back of the freezer that you don't admit to having and certainly never feeding your children?

I took 4 of them and cut them into cubes. Instant hash browns!! They even looked the same and tasted so yummy. Seriously, there was little difference with the french fries.

So after my mini-crisis (ok, not really) I had a lovely dinner of scrambled eggs, hash browns, ham, chives and cheese. Yum!


  1. Hi there.
    I just wanted to let you know that you have won an advertising spot on Friday-Follow. I will be grabbing your button (unless you have another one) to use on Friday-Follow's home page.
    Thanks for playing!

  2. Some of the best dinners are those driven by desperation followed by inspiration. A good friend of mine calls them Kitchen Miracles. Great idea1
