"I need to go to the grocery store so I can get all the stuff to cook what I dreamed about, what I made in my dream."
"Sweetie, I love you, but that's ridiculous. We have plenty of food in the house already. You're just going to destroy the kitchen and leave a sink full of dirty dishes."
"But... but there were sweet potatoes, and leeks, and hash browns, and corned beef and... and bacon..."
I did my best to jot down the hash ingredient quantities as I was working – these are rough estimates.
1 medium white potato, peeled and diced - about 1 cup
2 shallots, minced - 1/2 cup
1/2 green bell pepper, minced - about 1/2 cup
1 red jalapeño, seeded and minced
6 ounces cooked corned beef brisket, chopped fine
fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped, about 2 tablespoons
salt and pepper to taste
