Everyone in this house knows that Stephanie needs breakfast, and she needs it now (my parents, siblings and old college roommates know this about me, too). Hangry Steph is a very real side of me that I don’t like to let out often, but it happens every now and again. And oftentimes, that time is breakfast.
A cup of coffee in hand will help keep this side of me at bay for a little while. But if I wait much longer than two hours past wake time, I get anxious and twitchy and my stomach begins to growl (or am I actually growling? Hard to say). Suddenly, my mind is totally consumed with thoughts of food and getting that food into my belly as soon as possible. And in that moment, the very last thing I can handle is waiting even longer for breakfast to actually be done.
So that’s why, in this house, we prepare ahead. With cinnamon plum baked oatmeal.19
