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 hadnâ€™t fed them yet. Whoops. Iâ€™m sure other pet owners can relate to the â€œOh, crap â€“ weâ€™re out of puppy food!â€ kind of morning. Itâ€™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, itâ€™s not only been difficult to pull together an interesting breakfast, itâ€™s been hard to do breakfast, period. Itâ€™s helpful to keep ready-to-eat foods in the fridge, but if breakfast involves any sort of prep work, itâ€™s all over. I went three hours without breakfast (unless coffee counts) this morning â€“ 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.
Nowâ€¦ If I could just manage a tasty lunch.
