Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

So it's been a little over a week now that I've had to get reaccustomed with the wee hours of the morning. By 5 a.m. I'm trodding heavy-lidded into the kitchen towards the smell of my morning fuel.  I don't know what I would do without a coffee pot with a timer.  Seriously.

Not a day has gone by that I haven't made a plan to take a nap once all the kids are out the door.  And not a day has gone by that I have actually followed through with that plan.  I mean, 2½ hours later?  I'm awake by then.  The coffee is pumping through my veins...three children have been fed and groomed...the morning air feels cool and welcoming.  And best of all, it's now time for mama to eat some breakfast.
