Anatomy of a Breakfast Bowl (Char Siu & Egg Over Rice)

Anatomy of a Breakfast Bowl (Char Siu & Egg Over Rice)

I love Sunday morning breakfast.

All things southern is the line my daughter uses on her posts from Houston, Texas.  Yes, my Cali girl is now a transplanted Texan, temporarily, hopefully.  She is finishing her 1st year at Rice University and loving it. I now have a vested interest in […]
