Breakfast for Dinner


dinner of champions

This week my dinner menu consists of: cheese and crackers, lots of fruit, veggie breakfast burritos, smoothies, sweet potato hash topped with a fried egg, Sly’s homemade brioche bread slathered in jam, and the occasional salad. This can only mean one thing: the hubby is out of town.

As someone who was a long time singleton by choice it’s funny to think that the moment Sly is away I revert to the most helpless version of myself — one that apparently cannot do ANYTHING for herself. Like “oh I should probably check the mail.” Pause. “Nah, I’ll wait for Sly.”  Or, “Maybe I should move that heavy thing somewhere else.” Pause. “No, Sly can do that.” Was this what I was like before I was married? Or is this what it’s like to be one half of a married couple? Will I ever act/feel like a real adult?

In other news, it’s been raining like crazy here — thunder, lightning, the whole thing. It feels weird to be in the middle of a thunderstorm when living in the city. Alone. Just me and the kitties, cuddled up every single night.

Here’s to another week of to do lists that never get checked, crappy girly tv (Teen Mom 2 anyone? No? What about Project Runway?), and breakfast for every meal; every day.

    I had an omelette for dinner last night and thought nothing of it! Haha, of course I haven’t cooked for myself in nearly a year – too tiring. But no judging your nonSly food choices!

    Camper Van update: I was up in the NC mountains last week and saw TWO vans with the little compartment over the driver and curtains on all the windows. They looked smaller and probably are better on gas than an RV. Where do these vans come from? My mom and I have been researching. No answers yet.

    I think people buy these vehicles and trick them out on their own or maybe some company has the market cornered on those vehicles. A while ago we were looking into modding a truck and there was a site I think called gtrv or something. There are also a ton of classifieds for all types of rvs but finding them to rent is pretty hard outside of the West Coast. (Hmmm business venture perhaps?) Do you have a camping world store near you? Wondering if they would know more…

    Hmmm check out this site:

    I think what you need to google is “class b rv” — those are the smaller van-like ones.
