Calcifer’s Eggs and Bacon

Everybody has their comfort foods, and this has quickly become one of ours.  For starters it has eggs.  Tonks and I love eggs, so they  have a short life expectancy around here.  Last Sunday I bought two dozen eggs and we were out of eggs again on Wednesday.  Sad, but true. Second, it has bacon.  BACON, guys. This is important stuff we’re talking about here and essential for normal functioning.     And the icing on this cake is the most delicious caramelized onions.  If you didn’t like onions before, you will now.

Hidden Salmon Crouching Rice

The title of the post is brought to you by Minerva: a leader in training young padawans in the ways of the geek. And I just found out that my laptop spell check does not support Jedi terminologies. Shame on it.
Now, back to your regular programming.
As you know by now, during these past two weeks we have been slowly but surely trudging our way through huge quantities of salmon and tilapia. I swear I have little ghosts of fishes swimming out of my ears by now – and that’s not a good thing. I would love to insert a cartoon of someone pulling a fish out of his/her ear but clearly Google couldn’t find it. Hence it doesn’t exist in the world.
Jokes aside, the creation of the Hidden Salmon Crouching Rice was a result of an atrocious day. Not even a bad day, but an atrociously day to the point I found a bitter Sith happiness that the weather matched my stormy mood (for future references, the Dark Side does have cookies). On the way home from work at St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, I just wanted something quick, comforting like fried rice, and anything that hid the fishy smell/taste/site/essence/existence of salmon that I had to cook. Thus, if you want to have a stronger salmon flavor feel free to use more salmon.
Thus, I humbly present to you my recipe for Hidden Salmon Crouching Rice.
