I woke up about 4am this morning (late, I know) and the first thing which popped into my head was...Mexican Rice.
Why Mexican Rice, I have no idea. So I had a cup of coffee, had a nibble of toast and stared into the refrigerator until it started dinging at me (twice). Eggs didn't sound good, bacon didn't either; pancakes didn't sound good...nothing was hitting that right spot. 87 channels and nothing on...kind of thing. Hmmmm...the one thing I really, really, wanted was...Mexican Rice!
But, it's wrong to eat Mexican Rice for breakfast...isn't it? I mean who would do this...right?
Soon my brain began chanting in my subconscious..."Mexi-can Rice...Mexi-can Rice...Mexi-can Rice!" Pretty soon my foot started to join in, tapping the beat..."Mexi-can Rice...Mexi-can Rice!" Okay, that's it!!!
Next thing I knew I was putting the finishing touches on a nice pot of Mexican Rice. Wife says to me..."You're going to eat that like...now??? In the morning??? Like for breakfast???"
YEP! And I'm not ashamed either!
And when I took my first bite, it was EXACTLY what I wanted, it hit that perfect spot. All those wonderful Mexican spices, and some of my favorite hot sauce added in. Oh man!! It was sooo good I even had a second bowl!
Mexican Rice for breakfast...who knew?

Never understood the whole breakfast, lunch, dinner thing. Working crazy schedules made me realize, yes I can have pizza whenever I want, yes, drinking a beer at 6Am when I get home after a shift is OK, yes bacon and eggs for dinner is perfectly fine.
One of my fav. breakfasts is rice from the night before re fried with scrambled eggs. Quick and easy.
