It means that I must prepare myself. For what, you ask? Well, for all the things.

For breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, most importantly.

In the past, we were really bad about hitting up the drive thru for lunch. Not every day, but a few times a week, at least. It was quick, it was easy, it was cheap. Also, cooking three meals a day is just too much. For serious.

Now? I’m cooking three meals a day. Lucky me, this egg salad is not only easy, but tastes phenomenal. It’s full of flavor from the bacon and cheddar, perfectly creamy from the hit of mayonnaise, and has just the right bite from the mustard. I even ate this for breakfast today, which was not weird, because it’s basically bacon, eggs, and toast. Winning!
