Breakfast for Dinner

I swear I will start cooking real meals again soon...I have just been in a rut lately. I am pretty uninspired and just in an overall mealtime funk. My only requirements have been cheap and easy...fairly pedestrian. I am too lazy to try anything new, and I don't want to spend any extra money on specialty ingredients. My pantry is fairly well stocked, but I have just been unimaginative. I don't want to put forth the effort.

Well, tonight is no different. We are having breakfast for dinner. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast...diner style. I am not even the one doing the cooking! The husband is literally the breakfast guru in our house, so he is picking up the slack. He can make any breakfast item you ask for...biscuits and sausage gravy from scratch, chorizo, potato and egg burritos, the above-mentioned diner breakfast, pancakes, etc. He is a serious self-taught breakfast cook. Anyway, as I am typing this, he is busily preparing our breakfast for dinner. I will post a photo, but no review.

I hope to be out of my funk by tomorrow; and come up with a fabulous meal plan for the week. So far, I have no ideas. My friend Claire expressed the same sentiment earlier today on her blog. I guess I can take comfort in the fact that I am not alone in my dinnertime woes.

The Result: Here is our dinner...

Ha! Did I fool you??? Okay, okay...obviously this is NOT our "breakfast for dinner", but a picture of my three mangy mutts, instead. I was not quick enough to get a picture of our final 'breakfast for dinner' plate, so I thought I would give you a peek of the three world's worst behaved canines ever created. Oh, and to answer your boxer DOES have a tongue that is too large for his mouth. (He is very sensitive about it, so I would not mention it too his face).

John's the breakfast cook in our house, too. I ended up making an okay Italian style burger with Italian seasoning, breadcrumbs, and spaghetti sauce mixed in, then topped with mozzarella and some additional spaghetti sauce, served on foccacia rolls I found in the freezer. It was okay.
