The graduation ceremony is something like 8 a.m. tomorrow!!!! No, I kid you not. 8 in the AM. Seriously. Who does that?
So anyway, we were thinking about a ceremonial bar-bee-que, but now we've re-grouped to a lovely brunch. And the centerpiece -- Kyle's favorite breakfast! I know we go to that frequently here at the Haney Place http://thehaneyplace.blogspot.com/2010/02/kyles-favorite-breakfast.html, but here's a how-to. And this recipe is such a basic (feed the help) kind of recipe, everyone should be able to appreciate.
Now...to that lovely mess in the bowl, add some good salt (sea salt or kosher salt) and freshly ground pepper. I had the extreme blessing of Big Steve going out to our back yard and harvesting some wildly growing chives, planted forever ago by whomever, in the back yard of this home, formerly a farmstead, and now smack dab in the city. But hey, it's real and good food, and organically grown, at this point. So I chopped them up and added them to the mess in the bowl (thank you Lord!)
Meantime now...we got a 9 x 13 pan well greased and containing potatoes:
And bake that whole mess for one hour at 350. I'll post pictures of the final mess tomorrow. For tonight, it's sitting in the fridge until lift-off, so it's TOTALLY do-ahead. And tomorrow we'll post Anna's fruit dip recipe!!!
