Breakfast Nachos

Truth be told I'm a night owl.

Actually, the more I read about the subject, I think I probably suffer from delayed sleep phase syndrome. This is the inability to awaken and fall asleep at socially acceptable times but no problem with sleep maintenance. Or, where your timing of sleep is off, or shifted. I sleep full nights, I just go to bed way later and sleep in. My peak period of alertness has always begun at about dinner. I feel my most awake from about 8-midnight.

I remember when I was little my parents would tuck me in bed and I'd read book after book after book. It was not uncommon for me to plow through one or two Baby Sitter's Club, Boxcar Children, or Nancy Drews a night. I also had a variety of cassette tapes my mom would play for me, ranging from nighttime prayers, to songs, and sounds of nature.

So it is of no surprise that most of the time I'm up late reading your blogs or snacking on something tasty.

Tonight I finally got around to making a treat I've wanted for a long time:

Biz's Breakfast Nachos!!!!!

Mine are a slacker's version, nowhere near as gorgeous as hers.

I heated some refried beans in a skillet while I scrambled 2 eggs. Then I mixed the two together. I spread this over some tortilla chips and doused everything with taco sauce. Had I been motivated to, I would have added sour cream or perhaps green onions too.

Either way they were delicious! So filling and tasty. I loved them!

I wonder why it took me so long to try them, or why I didn't think of them myself! I love making breakfast burritos - so a breakfast nacho isn't too far of a stretch.

Packing progress! I've gotten all of the clothes I won't need for the next few months packed. Now I'm working on other unnecessary items like books, photos, and knick knacks.

Because we're still working on the house while living in it, it's going to be a wild dance of musical chairs, but in box form. I'm trying to get as much of our stuff out of the way as possible to make this easier. My goal is to leave just the bare necessities of furniture and stuff to "stage" the house, while having the rest of it packed away neatly and out of our way!

uuuhhhh duh! these are freaking GENIUS--seriously. I wonder why nachos have not caught on? you should make the migas I made a while back simple AND delish too

oh that is too funny - I'm the complete opposite! I can barely keep my eyes open past 9pm but can never sleep past about 6:30am!

Luna Raven said...

How funny that Annelies has a very similar post on her blog this morning. Clearly you are both genius and now the way to our hearts involves chips and eggs. Woot!

We, too, love making breakfast burritos, but it can be a lot of work. Breakfast nachos are the perfect solution when we want those flavors in far less time. Thank you for the idea!

Breakfast + Nachos = Awesomeness! Thanks for sharing :)

Ug...moving is gross, but so worth living in boxes for a while! I'm so the opposite in the sleep cycle, I'm an early to bed early to rise girl. Have a great day Christina, good luck with the move.

I still haven't made my sister's nacho's either! Yours look great though!

I love moving - I've move a lot in my adult life, because its a chance to get rid of crap and get organized

Biz said...

Love that you tried the nachos - they look delicious! I am actually surprised you had time to fix anything lately with all the stuff you have going on.

If I lived closer I'd come over and help you box some stuff up!

Have an awesome weekend Christina!

@Jenn - Since I kind of moved into J's house in stages I don't have much of my crap here anyways. And he isn't the type to hang onto stuff. So luckily it's not a matter of a bunch of piled up stuff!

@Biz - I wish you lived closer too! The help would be great - it gets lonely doing it by myself. I play music to make it more fun, but that only helps a little.
