I found myself standing outside PetCo at 8:59 AM, patiently waiting for them to open. The dogs had spent the better part of dawn staring me down, wondering why I hadn’t fed them yet. Whoops. I’m sure other pet owners can relate to the “Oh, crap – we’re out of puppy food!” kind of morning. It’s one of those days.
I used to pride myself on interesting breakfasts. I would even wake up 15 minutes early just to prep something tasty and pretty. Like so:

Lately, it’s not only been difficult to pull together an interesting breakfast, it’s been hard to do breakfast, period. It’s helpful to keep ready-to-eat foods in the fridge, but if breakfast involves any sort of prep work, it’s all over. I went three hours without breakfast (unless coffee counts) this morning – SO BAD. So when I finally got around to making breakfast, I figured it should be special.
Brown rice, two scrambled eggs, steamed spinach, and leftover cast iron tofu. Hit the spot.
Now… If I could just manage a tasty lunch.
