Game Cube Hash

I love older games and game systems. Call me crazy but there's something about dusting off something you haven't played in a bit that hits you in the nostalgia gland. I'm a big Zelda fan. And I know that The Wind Waker for the GameCube was one of those love/hate games. Some people really loved it, some people really hated it. I think I'm somewhere in between. My favorite Zelda games were from the N64. So the graphical differences took some getting used to but the game play was still awesome as expected from this franchise. And don't get me started on how excellent Twilight Princess was.

Anyway! (I'm such a Zelda geek) This dinner is to pay homage to the GameCube and all the fabulous games that go with it. Everything is chopped up into cube shaped making this a fun and colorful pixelated dish. It's also absolutely superb as breakfast!
