Ending the Debate: Ketchup on Eggs?

Do you put ketchup on your eggs? 

I personally think it's sacreligious, just like dipping pizza in ranch dressing.

Maybe it's because I'm not the biggest fan of ketchup to begin with but in my world ketchup belongs on two things: a hot dog and if necessary a cheese burger. Ok ok, dipping french fries in the stuff is also acceptable......

The thought of having a bacon egg and cheese on a roll with ketchup seriously grosses me out.  I honestly can't even take a bite out of someone else's egg sandwich if there's ketchup on it, no matter how bad I want those eggs.  I know I'm not alone in feeling this way, (Thanks to a 45 min long debate in Fire Island) So I'm here to finally end this dispute...Take this poll, share this poll and let's get to the bottom of this!!!

From now until tomorrow you will be able to fill out this poll.  I will be reporting the final results regardless if I agree with how this ends.  Thanks for participating!!!

Pizza + Breakfast

Breakfast pizza!!!  Yup, it makes so much sense to add one of my favorite meals of the day to one of my favorite things to eat.

Major Cooking Fail

If you live in NY, particularly around the NYC area, and love Vietnamese..Vietnam...mese....Vietnamese (for some reason I can't seem to pronounce this word probably) then I hope you've been to Saigon Grill. If you haven't, GO!!  NOW!  I'm not kidding, stop reading and just GO!  You will enjoy some of the best Vietnamese food you'll ever have!

Kevin and a bunch of his friends all shared an apartment back in the day, they used to order Saigon Grill, drive into the city to get it and go, travel all the back to Nyack and enjoy the feast!! From what I'm told, these guys would order the same dishes each time. They must have because he knows the numbers of the dishes by heart; thankfully because the menu is like 10 pages long.  To be 100% honest, I'm not even sure what they are called, all I do know is that one is a beef dish that is so friggin tender it melts in your mouth.  Another is this glass noodle dish, Bun Xao, that is perfection in my book.  So good that I always try to find it at other places and fail.

Well recently, we discovered this Asian market in White Plains and they had the glass noodles there.  So I decided why not try and recreate the masterpiece that is Bun Xao.  I went searching online for a recipe but couldn't seem to find the right one.  Eventually I came upon a Chowhound post, "Desperate for BunXao Recipe" with a thread of people asking the same question..."Does anyone know how to make the Bun Xao from Saigon Grill in NYC"  Apparently, I'm not the only person who is in love with this dish.

Spring Pics: A Little Late

Almost a year ago, I got my Canon Rebel as a birthday present.  It was one of the best presents I've ever been given.  Until I opened it, I wasn't even aware how much I wanted one.  It's amazing that someone knew me so well that he could buy me a birthday present I really wanted without me even saying a word about it. That to me is true love.  

What's even better is the reaction I get from Kev when I take my camera out for the day to capture wonderful pictures.  He gets just as excited watching me as I do playing with the camera.

Here are some of those pictures from a beautiful spring day in the city.
