I never thought of myself as a breakfast person. Yes I’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and shouldn’t be overlooked but I never gave much thought to it.

I haven’t posted any breakfast recipes yet so here comes the first. I don’t really believe in breakfast foods.  In my world it is perfectly normal to heat up dinner leftovers for breakfast. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating beef stew or leftover pizza  at 8:00 am (I know some people would beg to differ). Although…
