a set of mixing bowls

As I am watching the State of the Union, I am reminded of when in school you debated whether America was a melting pot or a salad bowl. Truth be told, its probably a little of both. Just like my household and our palates. Me and my carnivore agree on some basic things - like fried potatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. Who doesn't like that dynamic duo, really? On other things we are more separate - clearly he is the meatatarian (He'd have bacon on everything if he could) and I am not (I love avocados myself). These breakfast bowls are just one example of how we mix our tastes.

First, I started by making my homemade garlic hasbrowns. You can click here to see how to make these. At the same time I also fried up a few slices of applewood smoked thick cut bacon for my meat loving man. In a separate skillet I sauteed a handful of baby bella mushrooms and a few slivers of red onion in olive oil with salt and pepper. Once these were all ready I made the bases for the bowls. I, not surprisingly, started with a bed of mixed greens for mine. I then added potatoes to both. The bacon went on the carnivore's bowl and the veggie mix on mine. Some shredded cheddar was sprinkled on and allowed to melt while I fried up two eggs. I placed these on the top and then sliced up a bit of avocado to place on the side of mine with a dollop of sour cream. If I had tabasco in my house I would have added a dash of that too.

Served up with a short glass of OJ, and a large cup of coffee or two (baby omnivore is teething and none of us are sleeping), these bowls disappeared quickly. See, we can all just get along.
