I guess I’m what you’d call a night owl. I do my best thinking at night. Well, and in the shower. Think of what would happen if I showered at night!
Wow, my head just exploded.
Anyway, I guess it’s because of all that crazy social media – facebook, twitter, instagram, google reader, the list goes on – during the day it’s fun to check in and see what other people are up to. And also pretend that I don’t have a shit ton of work to do myself.
I just said shit. I feel like that’s not what you’re supposed to do on a blog. But whatever, it’s Tuesday and we’re getting crazy up in here.
Because I’m mostly doing my best thinking at night, I’m up pretty late and in the morning it feels like I got run over by a truck and then again by a crazy cackling person on a bike ringing one of those little bike bells.
You can then imagine how insane I look when I wake up. I usually have to pop one eye back in.
Bryan actually told me that if I don’t breathe while I’m doing my pull-ups my eyes could actually pop out. I’m really questioning the validity of his statement.
So by the time I wake up, one eye hanging from its socket, I have no desire to do anything but drink a giant glass of water and a nice hot cup of tea.
Most of the time I can’t do breakfast, especially not eggs.
You might find it surprising that my subject today is an egg. It’s what I had, so it’s what I cooked. I also thought it was pretty.
Soon after that I ate a piece of pizza. Because by then it was already noon.
I’d also like to note that I had never cooked a sunny side up egg before. Ever. I am a little ashamed since I feel like it’s akin to not knowing how to boil water. So I googled it as I do all of my life problems, and this is what I surmised:
SUNNY SIDE UP EGG WITH RED PEPPER FLAKES
Cooking oil or a small pat of butter
Salt (I used sea salt)
Freshly ground pepper
Red pepper flakes
Heat pan to medium high. Add a bit of oil. Crack egg into pan. Turn stove down to low/medium-low. Cook until the white is white (no longer clear) and the bottom has browned (you can see by lifting the side up with a spatula). Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a dash of red pepper flakes.
