What a bunch we are! We all know how to make virtually anything that comes into our little minds, and yet, we are so busy that we eat leftover pizza, or onion soup, or old waffles, just to get something in our bellies before flying off to work. We truly are - Slaves to the Wage. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I save my days off for playing with food, days I work...I've got someplace to be and 10 hour shifts...too busy getting my Bentos set up for the week. More interested in eating well at work.

I take exception to your including leftover pizza in your post!

I am not employed, I can cook and I consider leftover pizza for breakfast an item worthy of a Lucullan feast!

Goodweed--I work from home--so I don't fly out the door--I do have drag my butt out of bed to get on line on time, but that's only a 5-second trip and I can take a break to eat...then when the sun comes up, I have to take a break to go get eggs and let the girls out (I just have to stop watching them and go back to work!). I just like "non" breakfast foods! I'm not a breakfast person...and I don't think there should be expectations about one eats in the morning...I love peach cream pie or wild blueberry pie for breakfast (when it is in season) and leftover pizza has always been one of my favs!

Thanks to the McQuinty government and "Time of Use" meters, I do my "big cooking" on the weekend (although, I could cook stuff while working from 2-7 a.m. -but I'm not that organized). I plan my meals, including what I can eat for breakfast, on Thursdays. And, other than heating things up in the microwave or on the stovetop, that's all the cooking I do for 7 days. I MISS cookling. I get to start cooking Friday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and have to be done by 7:00 a.m. Monday. A challenge to be sure. Chirp-chirp-s/one in Poland has IM'd me. sigh, back to work.

I decided I didn't like the extra saltiness, so I add about 1/4 C more water than it calls for.

Still not feeling 100% so I figured I needed something more solid. Breakfast was a bacon and egg sandwich.

I signed up for the Walmart trip at 10AM. I really need stuff. Hopefully I'll be functional enough.
