Things that should happen more often

I don’t know about you, but for me, it can be so easy to slip into “creature of habit” mode. Or maybe consider yourself an all-the-time COH and are, like, “Wait, that’s a just a mode one can slip into? Since when?”

Either way. When it comes to breakfast, as I’ve said many times before, I almost always have a variation of oatmeal. Lately (and by “lately” I mean, like, the last 2 months), I’ve been alternation between this (with egg whites) and this, with an occasional green-pancake breakfast when I have extra spinach to use up. Over the winter, savory oatmeal was my thing.

Sunday morning, I was up bright and early (I’ve been gradually training my body to wake up a little earlier again in preparation for the new gig). I had plans for a picnic, but it wasn’t until 3 pm. So, after a workout to kill some time, I decided to use up a bunch of random things lurking in the fridge and freezer by making egg-white French toast for what I guess I’ll call brunch.

As I often do, I ate it with a side salad—gotta use up the greens and get in some veggies for the day.  Seriously, why don’t I do this more often? French toast is so easy and satisfying, not to mention delicious. This is definitely one of those things that needs to happen more often.

Are you a creature of habit? What are some things that need to happen more often in your kitchen? Or in your life, for that matter?
