A Southern Breakfast Bowl
|I Hit Gold Cleaning Out the Fridge|
With the start of a New Year comes an urge to clear away clutter, organize my belongings, and otherwise bring a sense of calm to the chaos. Seemingly, I have the same approach for organizing my refrigerator as I do for my closet, so it was a serendipitous surprise to ferret out the ingredients for a soul satisfying and satiating breakfast bowl.
I'm hoping that most people have the makings for a similar breakfast bowl, but I'm pragmatic enough to realize that not everyone practices the same religion when it comes to a proper New Year's feast. That noted, I'm sure a similar breakfast bowl could be had with whatever scraps you have on hand, but I'm willing to bet it won't be as delicious as mine: collard greens and cabbage, an end piece of cornbread, a spoonful of brown rice, a fried egg, a few shakes of hot sauce, and a thick cut slice of Mr. B's root beer cured bacon.
Happy New Year and here's to 2017!
