Getting Eggsxcited

I am honored to be co-hosting this week’s Fiesta Friday #55 (click to join) party with my dear friend and talented cook Suzanne@apuginthekitchen.

I hope you will consider joining us if you haven’t already, for one of my favorite weekly events started by our friend Angie@thenovicegardener where we get together online and share food, stories, memories, recipes, encouragement, and laughs. Here are the guidelines:


Fridays are usually filled with anticipation for a fun and exciting or relaxing weekend. Fridays feel different and are somehow more special than other weekdays. They’re days to indulge, to let your hair down, and to celebrate by kicking it up a notch.

So, share with us how you celebrate your Fridays.

HOW? Create a new post specifically for Fiesta Friday. Adding a visual element (a photo/picture/image) to accompany the post is recommended. Make sure to tag your post with “Fiesta Friday” so others can find it.

WHAT? The post can be about food (recipe you make or restaurant review), activity (games you play, movies you watch), fashion (what you wear), music (what you listen to), or even uplifting quotes and funny jokes. The idea is to share something that helps you get your groove back after a long week of work. In doing so, you’ll inspire others.

WHEN? It’s a recurring weekly party. It starts Friday morning and ends the following Wednesday afternoon. The earlier you link, however, the more views you’ll be getting.

WHERE? The party is hosted at The Novice Gardener’s. Link your post to The Novice Gardener’s blog. Publish the post on your own blog as you normally do, then visit the current Fiesta Friday post on The Novice Gardener and add your post’s URL to the list of links. A thumbnail image of your selected photo will be displayed to make it easier for others to find you.

  • A number of posts will be selected and featured on the next Fiesta Friday. To be considered for features, posts must adhere to the guidelines.
  • Please visit other links and leave a comment (Be kind, courteous, and encouraging). After all, this is a party. Mix and mingle! That’s the whole idea.

Now let’s get the party started!

This week I’ve simply brought two egg dishes, but without recipes.  One is a kimchee pancake that I made from David Tanis’ feature in the NY Times Food Section a couple of weeks ago, and the other is simply a dish of boiled green tea buckwheat noodles seasoned with a touch of miso thinned with water, sesame, nori, black pepper and an olive oil fried egg.

Who knows the name for these images?  First to identify the term correctly wins a surprise from birgerbird.

  1. Wowzie!
    I Anin love with both the dishes. Excellent as ever. Loved the green tea buckwheat noodles with nori, sesame seeds and fried egg in the first picture. What a delicious delight it migt be to take a mouthful bite of noodles and runny yolk serving as sauce….if I say, super I wrong?

    The pancakes with eggs look delicious too.

    • Hi there Sonal!!! I love your term “super umami” and I am going to plagiarize your term and use it over and over! I am sooo late to the party this week because of work so I need to go see what you’ve brought. Sorry to say that it’s not the term I was looking for!!!

    • Thanks Hilda I am so behind in co-hosting because I just returned to work full time, but yesterday I think I saw that you made sumac mead for God’s sake! I can’t wait to check it out! And sadly, it’s not fritto misto but thanks for trying!!!
