Breakfast and brunch have always been my two favorite meals of the day. I don’t know why. I’ve always been a protein for breakfast kind of person too. And a savory protein. The idea of having only something sweet for breakfast or brunch does not appeal to me one bit. Maybe it’s because my mom wouldn’t allow me to have the sugary cereals as a kid? I don’t know. Now don’t get me wrong, I love pancakes, waffles, donuts, danishes, cereal, etc. but I usually want those items in the evening for some reason. Probably because in college my friends and I would always do the late night Denny’s run after a night of partying, because pancakes drenched at 2am is soooooooooooo good 😉 Although now that I think about it, a lot of times the after party would be at my place and I’d wind up making omelettes with hash browns and bacon for everyone. Or I would wind up taking over someone else’s kitchen and cook everyone breakfast at 2am. Oh, those were the days!
Today is the first day of a new series I’m going to start doing: Food Prep Sunday. Every Sunday I take a few hours and cook and prep all of Jeff and my meals for the week. I’ve already been taking photos and uploading some of them to Instagram (@yummyinmycleantummy), so I decided that I should actually be writing about this and sharing it with you all!
This week’s food prep was an interesting one. First, I started almost 2 hours after I originally planned on starting the day. For the first time in awhile, Jeff and I actually slept in on a Sunday. Of course if you know me at all, waking up at 7:30am is sleeping in for me. Feel free to antagonize me about that in the comments! Continue reading Food Prep Sunday – 02.22.15
I love egg bakes! Want to know why? Because not only are they the easiest thing to make, but I can make them on Sunday and then Jeff and I have at least 4 breakfasts a week for both of us ready to go! This way as we’re scrambling to get ready in the morning I don’t have to cook us breakfast and clean up from it! We don’t even have to use a plate because I portion it out into individual containers, so we can heat it up on our own when we’re ready to eat it. Ahhh, the easy meal. I love it!
