Hearts on the Plate!

It's pretty easy to turn almost anything in a special Valentine meal!  Here's a couple poached eggs on top of my homemade corned beef hash.  I have a cute little heart-shaped poacher insert ... so it was pretty easy.

To make the hash, gently fry 2 cups of potatoes, cut into small cubes ... with 1 cup chopped onion and 1/2 cup chopped celery.  Add 2 cups of chopped corned beef (already cooked leftovers or from the deli).  Add 1/2 cup water or beef broth and cover the skillet.  Let the hash steam for a few minutes, then remove the lid and let the liquid steam away.  Season with generous salt, pepper,  a dash of cumin powder, garlic powder and an additional Tablespoon of dried minced onion.  Serve with poached eggs.

Then, later in the evening for dessert ... we had regular old lemon bars, but  I chose to cut them with a heart cookie cutter ... top them with a little cherry heart candy ... and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar.
