This happened not once but twice this week, and all I have to say is it better not be some kind of trend. Both times I tossed. I turned. I readjusted and refluffed. Covers off, covers on? Hot or cold, make up your mind. I went to the bathroom (the "wee" hours, indeed) and had a sip of water.
Finally, facing the fact that there were no more Zs to be had, I got up to make myself some breakfast. And not half a banana and a piece of dry toast either. We're talking P's House of (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free) Pancakes. Or, you know, P-HO(gfdfsf)P for short.
So I hauled out the big electric griddle and all the ingredients and made blueberry buckwheat pancakes from scratch. That didn't seem like enough, so I made some eggs and ham besides. And then I ate another pancake. With almond butter.
As you might imagine, in a little while I was sleepy again, so Mama Bear settled in for a four-hour, mid-morning, REM-crazy,
Two days later, a similar scenario. This time, however, I made a skillet frittata with broccoli, shredded zucchini, diced ham, and two eggs. I'm calling it "Green, Eggs and Ham."
It will be on the P-HO(gfdfsf)P menu, whenever the printer gets it right.
I've eaten this twice since (after a normal night's sleep), and it is my Favorite Thing this week. Today I didn't have any ham, so I substituted leftover salmon. Do not try this at home. Okay, "Green Eggs and Sam" wasn't bad, but it won't be appearing on our regular menu, except maybe on Fridays during Lent. Ham is definitely better.
Here's how it all goes together.
Yes, that IS a blob of bacon fat to grease the skillet.
I know it's a nonstick pan, what's your point?
Looky there, a serving of vegetables and the sun is barely up!
Pretend this is ham. Do as I say. Or keep the cats away from the stove.
Put the cover on it for a couple minutes until the top sets. Or if looking at it gives you the heebie-jeebies.
Slide it out of the pan (miracle of bacon grease!) and onto a plate. If it still gives you the willies, look at the fruit.
LOOK AT THE FRUIT! Puppies! Rainbows! Pancakes!
All kidding aside, it really does taste good (use ham).
Waking up at the wrong time: Completely Annoying.
Breakfast (anytime): Awesome.
Favorite thing: Green, Eggs and Ham.
P.S. - HAM.
