Chilaquiles with Eggs Over Easy 💃🏻

I grew up on this stuff, it was a once a week staple as I remember. I  always looked forward to it. It took me years to perfect my own recipe. I like the final dish to be a bit crunchy therefore the timing is crucial in my book. Some aren’t so picky with the crunch level of their chilaquiles for me it makes all the difference.

It is then grilled or pan-cooked to be served, sometimes with a side of lettuce or other leafy vegetable. Its history starts as ancient as from the Koryo Period (918~1392) when the meat culture was called “Mac-joek”. The taste of Bulgogi has developed throughout the history with every region’s culture which has now led to a creation of various Bulgogi in the present time. Bulgogi, however, contains another meaning that is not as widely known as it is recognized as a beef dish; its literal meaning contains the meaning of “fire” (bul) and “meat”(gogi), therefore referring to the meaning of “cooking the meat on fire”, the barbeque. During the 20th century, Korean barbeque became …

Sting

Death, dear friend, leaves such a sting. Your life on this earth ended in grief If only you were able to overcome your beasts Those that loved you, so many, so hurt So selfish, so cruel, that YOU just left I pray for you now as you enter life-after May you not know of any longer the sting you just left on this earth. g.  ©️PoemsbyGina
