Sometimes "What's for dinner?" can be the toughest question you'll get all day.
It's even harder when you haven't had time to go to the market. (Or are too lazy to go...) I know we've all been there...
You open the fridge and all you see are random items and an overdose of condiments.
You open the freezer, thinking maybe there might be something quick & useful there.
You open the pantry, because maybe it'll just be a cup-o-noodle kind of night.
*Repeat several times--because even if you already know what you have, something might magically appear and all your dinner problems will be solved.
Tonight was one of those nights.
After a disappointing Sunday in sports (49er/Laker losses) and waking up to a cold rainy Los Angeles, fighting the Monday crowd at the market was the last thing I wanted to do. So I came home and did the "What's for dinner?" dance. And after several repeats, I was frustrated and starving.
So I did what most great moms do when there's nothing dinner-worthy in the fridge: BREAKFAST FOR DINNER.
Who says pancakes aren't a dinner item??
Who says bacon&eggs are just for breakfast??
At my house, breakfast is served ALL day! (Take that McDonalds breakfast menu!)
Somehow, defying meal rules & regulations always seems to equal happiness.
So go ahead, have breakfast for dinner. I'm sure it'll make you smile. :)
|Dinner: italian sausage, mushroom, &arugula omelette!|
