Me, stumbling in the door squinting after an early morning appointment with the eye doc: Self, the world is too bright and filled with hurt. We need to make a simple, quick, comforting breakfast, because food will make the day better. Eggs?
Also Me: Why is the fridge so bright? Ugh. Grabbing things that need using. Don't want eggs.
Me: Self, you have half a red onion and a poblano in hand. What are you doing?
Also Me: Dicing and sauteing in oil, duh. Shrimp. There's shrimp in the deep freezer, and that's quick.
Also Me: Don't wanna. Huh. Hey, don't we have an open jar of green curry paste? Yes, yes we do. And ginger. And garlic.
Me: Self, do you realize how much curry paste you just spooned in?
Also Me: Don't worry, coconut milk will take care of it. Oops, better start the cauliflower rice in the microwave. Why does the microwave have to have bright hurty light?
Me: Self, you're making a shrimp curry for breakfast??
Also Me: Simple! Tasty! Quick! What d'ya want? I'm hurting and uncoffeed here!
