After publishing over 50 recipes on TB, you’d think that as a breakfast lover, I’d have a bundle of breakfast recipes, but I don’t. Breakfast should be on the no-fuss side of things, especially when you’re on the go in the morning, but I think you weekend breakfasters will appreciate this dish. Many of you may be familiar with donburi, a Japanese rice bowl dish topped with meat of your choice. Oyakodon is a type of donburi in that it is characterized by its usage of egg, making it perfect for breakfast or brunch. My Tofu Oyakodon recipe is a medium fuss breakfast/brunch recipe, perfect for kitchen beginners. It’s easy, efficient, cheap, & delicious that it works as a great base recipe. Since you have to bake the tofu & you’ve got some dishes to wash, it’s kind of a medium fuss type of meal, but well worth it, I promise! Modify it to your own personal preferences because if you’ve never eaten oyakodon before, it’ll change your breakfast game. So what else is the fuss with this recipe? Chopping up onions & mixing an egg. You can handle that, right? Right? No one needs a doctorate to chop up some onions, so be more proactive & less lazy, GET CHOPPIN’!
Summer is nearly, kind-of-but-not-really almost over, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy a refreshing ice pop on a bright & hot sunny day. At the peak of the season, I went on a bit of a fruit binge, so I got a tray of nectarines & peaches to use in my morning smoothies alongside blueberries, raspberries, & strawberries. We got a new blender over a month ago, so I’ve been utilizing all the fruits within my reach to whip up–or blend up, rather–some refreshing & healthy smoothies. You know how it is, gotta get that “daily 5” in somehow! This recipe is simple, healthy, & absolutely kid-friendly, but if there aren’t any kids around I’ve got a solution for that too. Add an extra zing to it by adding peach alcohol – 4-5 shots should be fine. No one will get drunk off the ice pops, don’t worry…that is of course, unless you eat all 10 ice pops in one sitting.
Moving past the lugubrious notion that summer is coming to an end, cheer up with a wonderful smoothie with some seasonal fruit!
