I'm going to a Yankees Game today, and I'm already wearing a navy blue and white striped shirt. Secretly I've been wanting a Yankees hat for like, over a year. Does Texas hate me? I'm sorry!!!
If there is one state I don't want to mess with, it's of course Texas. I don't want her/him/it/them to be ashamed of me moving to the city and becoming a Yankee, but I've been to more Yankees games than I have Astros or Rangers COMBINED. I don't know, I won't buy a Yankees hat though. It would feel like pure betrayal wearing it.
What are you doing this weekend!?! Kyle is finally having his spring break this semester, so besides him still going to work all week, he is all mine in the evenings for an entire week!!! Muhahaha.
I have a bunch of places I want to check out on my growing list of Places To Go To While in NYC, and so maybe I'll drag Kyle to a few over the weekend. One is called Egloo or Eggloo I think, and it's basically this bubbly waffle thing and they wrap it in a cone and put ice cream in it. Another place I need to go to now or I'll die is called Burnside Biscuits in Astoria. Yes it sounds like exactly what it is, plus fried chicken! There's also this amazing kitchen store in Manhattan called Whisk, but seeing as I spent $75 on a cutting board last weekend (using gift card money!), I probably shouldn't buy anything for awhile. Hashtag priorities, right?
Eating rice for breakfast was pretty normal in my family's kitchen growing up. My favorite was (and still is) actually steamed rice with eggs and bacon, but my mom used to make fried rice too with Chinese sausage, Vienna sausage, Spam, or corned beef hash! We loved it. I don't speak Tagalog but from what I understand the Filipino dish of corned beef, fried rice (sinangang), and egg (itlog) is known as Cornsilog. I served it with sriracha and fresh fruit on the side, but I know fresh tomatoes are popular too!
Filipino Fried Garlic Rice, Egg, and Corned Beef (Cornsilog)
- 2 cups cooked rice (like Basmati rice), preferably rice that is one day old
- 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 of a large onion, diced small
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 2 tbl. soy sauce
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tbl. cooking oil, using more if needed
- corned beef (canned or homemade), warmed up
- 2 fried eggs
- sriracha or red pepper flakes for serving (optional)
Directions: Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Fry onion until almost clear, then add garlic. Let simmer for about a minute, being careful not to let it burn, then add rice, soy sauce, salt and pepper, scallions, and soy sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until rice is browned and crispy.
Serve with fried eggs and corned beef hash!
