I looked through my pictures today, and wasn’t sure what to write about…. Yesterday was just so…. basic.
The most exciting thing I’ve been doing lately is watching the cat play with her pepper box
(that’s a box. With peppers in it. She loves it. She drags those stupid peppers everywhere. I found seven in the kitchen today. And one in the guest room. She’s advanced for her age)
But really? Are basics so bad?
Yesterday I made us both oats for breakfast
(yup I followed up a salad with the most normal breakfast evahhh. I am large, I contain multitudes.)
My husband has oats for breakfast a lot. I lovingly make them. In the microwave, with water.
Since I was having some too they were made on the stove, with part milk, and were also half oat bran, rather than just normal oats.
He loved them.
I feel a little guilty now.
(So guilty in fact that I made him French Toast today. Seriously.)
I put some pumpkin and pumpkin cream cheese on mine
Is cream cheese a weird choice? I don’t know. But I have some in the fridge, and I’m perpetually convinced food is about to go bad. So I have to use it before my brain is convinced it’s coated in microscopic mold.
Breakfast also calls for some coffee
Carbs and caffiene. The basics to get your day going.
(Know what’s not basic? Water. I didn’t drink any till after work yesterday. Whoops.)
Lunch was, again, basic
Yogurt (that’s a half full container, with peanut flour and enough cinnamon to kill a puppy), banana, carrots.
And I had a day of teaching kindergarten that was basically a blast.
Dinner was something I don’t make nearly enough
Chicken veggie soup.
I always get all these ideas of soups to make and ignore the basic chicken soup. And that’s silly of me because it’s so darn good! And easy.
I could feed my husband basically anything with bread on the side and he’d be happy.
Not going to lie, I like me some basics.
What’s a super basic meal you love?
I like toast. A lot. Like a weird weird lot. But only if it’s made in the oven.
