Eating Ghetto Fresh

I needed a hearty breakfast this morning.

So, I had some wine last night. You know, just a little. With dinner. I'm not much of a drinker really- it was just a splash. Or two. Or...uh...a dash more than that. A taste was all. Somehow, by the end of the night several bottles were gone. Huh. Well lookie there. Who did that?

Let the record show that I wasn't the only know...tasting the wine. The yummy drinkey wine.

I drink cheap wine exclusively.

Oh, and I should also say that after wine we had coffee. Right, coffee. Brilliant, Allie. Not just any coffee though- Greek coffee. Yummy drinkey Greek coffee.

So then I tried to go to bed- which was shockingly easy...until 4:00 am rolled around, and then it became much harder. Wide awake. Blink, blink, ba-blinkblink. Does wine give caffeine a 6 hour lag time? Something was annoyingly amiss, because I spent the next 3 hours trying to lie still in between neurotically uncovering and covering up based on my spazzy nocturnal temperature regulation- which happens no matter how much wine I am wont to imbibe. 

This morning my delicately churning stomach quickly alerted me that I was in need of a more substantial breakfast than my usual 4 slices of turkey bacon and a piece of toast with butter. The alert was something like, "WHAT THE EFF WAS THAT, WOMAN!?!" What I really wanted was a delicious 6-inch ham, egg and cheese sandwich on white bread, toasted, with tomato, lettuce and Southwest Sauce from (where else) Subway. What I didn't have was a car or a Subway. So that was out. But what I did have was one lonely egg begging to be relieved of it's meager existence, 2 pieces of turkey bacon, shredded Colby Jack cheese, Wonderbread (don't judge), a toaster, Thousand Island dressing and some ground cayenne pepper.  

Breakfast is born.
Sandwich annihilation commenced twenty seconds after this picture was taken, and once every crumb was obscenely inhaled I felt much more stable. Good thing, because it's pretty outside and I need to walk to the store to get more eggs- I have a feeling I'll need one in the morning.

That breakfast looks phenomenal! ;-)

Allie said...

It was tasted like sunshine and puppy love. It was like eating happiness.

Ashley said...

Puppy love doesn't sounds like something one should ingest. That sandwich on the other hand - priceless.

Ange said...

Yum! Yum, yum, yum!

I'm reaching the stage where I may hurt someone to over a slice of bread :)

Also? That's one of my fav Zin's. (At the risk of horribly pimping out my blog I'm going to link you to the post: ). I kind of hate myself for doing that.

PS - my code is "exhump". It made me giggle.

Allie said...

Ange- first of all, pimp away. I've always wanted to be a John. That didn't sound right. Oh well, too late to erase now. Along with the Rosewood, I also love Barefoot's Syrah. It cheap and easy and I could drink it with a straw. Exhump- bah!

Ange said...

Ohh, Barefoot, another decently inexpensive wine.

Exercise caution when purchasing Germany wine. It may only be 2 Euros but it's SWEET!

(Although, how awesome is it that beer is cheaper than water in the markets?! Does Stuttgart allow beer in public? I know most of Germany does - it was awesome, but so weird to get used to)

Allie said...

I haven't bought any bottles of German wine, but I always drink Trollinger Rotewine (Red wine) in restaurants if it's available- it's a dry red, and it's fantastic. And yes, people carry around beers here like soda- but I haven't seen anyone publicly drunk yet. Go figure.

Don't take offense at this, but that looks nauseating! Not the wine. The thingy that you did with the wonderbread (not judging) and bacon and stuff. *shudder*


Amanda said...

That Diet Coke looks delicious and the sandwich isn't half bad either. Sike, the sandwich looks super tasty! Yum, can you make me one on wheat? :)

Allie said...

@Canis Majoris- Looks can be deceiving! Actually (quite the opposite) it seemed to remedy the nausea. I will be forever grateful. I hope you didn't read the post right before mealtime. Woops!

@Amanda- Yes, please come over immediately and bring your boyfriend and I will whip you up a Strudel Special on Wheat immediately. With a side of Diet Coke.
