Breakfast for Dinner

Fridays are always a little hectic. The boy has preschool in the morning and then there’s the mad dash to get the girl to Kindergarten immediately following. Somewhere in between, I usually do the grocery shopping and whatever errands I need to run. By the end of the afternoon, I’m spent. I have no energy left for great pursuits.

So while I’ve managed to make a new recipe just about every day for 2 weeks now, I’m copping out tonight. I’m fresh out of ideas and the ability to execute them. I really could go for some take-out –sacrilege, I know!!–but I already had my share of that from Rocket Fine Street Food this afternoon (which, BTW, the peanut butter and jelly cupcakes are amazing!). So… in my uninspired state, there’s one fall back that always works: breakfast for dinner.

Between our schedules, hubby and I rarely get to spend breakfast-time with each other. He works two jobs, I go to school and volunteer, and since we try not to pay a babysitter if we don’t have to, we’re on opposing schedules. Last Saturday, we saw each other for all of 45 minutes–I kid you not! This means that breakfast together as a family also is a rare occurrence.

To make up for it, from time to time, we have the morning meal at the end of the day instead. Bacon, eggs, pancakes… the usual hearty fare to fill bellies and souls–it’s all good! On the menu tonight: home fries, scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. Simply wonderful!

What about you? Do you have breakfast for dinner? What are your favorite ways to flip the day upside down?
