I’m going through a bit of a second adolescence right now.
I cut my knee while shaving
Seriously, who manages that at 25?
I might currently be rocking out to Nelly like I’m 16.
And changing birth control has led to me breaking out like it’s 9th grade.
It’s only a matter of time before my blog starts to talk abut how I need to grub it tough.
(grub it = eat. tough = adds a degree of urgency or importance, can be used to mean things like “really”. so grub it tough = really hungry, more or less. )
I’ve never been the biggest on breakfast foods. In high school one of my main breakfasts was rice. Usually with peas and parm.
(although I don’t bleach my hair, rock abercrombie shirts, wear a size 4, or have my cookies make statements-that one was called “industrialization”. it’s a house, crushing a tree).
And, I still eat some weird breakfasts.
I remember going to Safeway in high school with friends and getting their salad kits (you know, with the dressing and croutons and things) and eating it out of the bag as dinner when we’d stay late for stuff.
I feel like most kids didn’t do this. But don’t lie-it’s smarter than the big macs you’d pick up before play practice.
I decided a BLT-ish salad would be a great breakfast.
Bacon is a breakfast food. Croutons are like toast. It’s reasonable.
Melted butter + bread = happy.
While the bacon cooked and the croutons crisped I made some ranch.
And added on the croutons, bacon, tomatoes, and some mushrooms for good measure.
(deep bowl = looks like it’s just toppings and dressing it. there is lettuce)
And Fresh Express was nice enough to send me a ton of salad coupons, so I’m going to share! Just leave a comment with a food you loved in high school to enter. I’ll pick two winners on Saturday and send them each two coupons for free Fresh Express salad!
