a simple breakfast

As much as I dislike to admit it, I do my best thinking and writing at odd hours of the night. It's currently 2:36 am, and about 5 minutes ago I remembered a photo I recently took of my breakfast the other morning. I was just browsing the web, not tired enough to close my eyes just yet, when I came across this tip from A Cozy Kitchen. Definitely trying that one soon. I'm diverging, it's late, and yet I suddenly feel compelled to write. About a very, almost "stupidly," simple breakfast. I wasn't around yet when the word "stupid" was used for emphasis, but for whatever reason that is the only word coming to mind, and well, I'm going with it.

I think it was the contrasting colors sitting before me that made me whip out my DSLR and snap a quick photo. Only after I instagrammed it, though. Isn't that how it seems lately? More iPhone, and less of everything else. I don't mind it all that much. However I am making a conscious effort to take my Nikon out with me more. I'm diverging again. Back to the breakfast.

I truly love pancakes, muffins, French toast, and anything that can be seen as the epitome of breakfast. I can't say I'm surprised. That time of the day when the sun screams morning. The coffee is brewing, you can see the steam rising from the coffee pot. Your cat is meowing to the loudest of his ability (he wants breakfast, too). And then that thought, "What should I couple with my coffee this morning?" It's all my favorite.

But we don't always have the time to make elaborate breakfasts. Or maybe it's that we want to eat a bit lighter in the morning. I'd say it's a mix of both for me, depending on the day. In any case, something as simple (and delicious) as sliced grapefruit, a dollop of Greek yogurt & topped with organic agave and oats, can be just what you need.

I'm tired now. And ironically dreaming of these.
