DSC_0170

I’ve been keeping my meals at home simple and under 30 minutes of cooking time. I’m mentally and physically drained from working so much that I literally have no motivation what so ever in conducting awesome 3 course meals.

This is one of my favorite meals that you can eat at any time of the day. The addition of the fried egg is a must! Just do it.
