Ever since Thanksgiving dinner - which was absolutely fabulous and freakin' delicious...I have been craving massive amounts of comfort food across the board. 
Right now I have a massive hankering for potatoes.
Actually - there is a fantastic dinner that my Mom used to make for us {and did when we were in California too} and it was actually one of the first dinners I cooked for my boyfriend. 
Even though you have to go through a massive amount of dishes it is sooo worth it. 
It's sunny-side up eggs, yellow wax beans {boiled}, cauliflower {boiled}, potatoes {boiled} with bread crumbs toasted in butter and then put on all the veggies. Omg. 
This meal is amazing! 
And something I will probably be making tonight. 
It's a super simple dish that doesn't require a massive amount of seasoning {except some salt for the water and pepper for the eggies}. 
My Dad's Mom used to make this too and I am pretty sure my Mamma's Mamma made it as well. 
Potatoes are definitely my most favorite vegetable ever...I love 'tatoes. 
Found this mouth-watering recipe on the Food Network website. 
Has all the elements of absolute deliciousness - a poutine {a French-Canadian to-die-for fries, gravy and cheese concoction} of sorts - except with mashed potatoes. 
This would go great with some grilled chicken and a nice salad. :)

Bon Appetit!
