Happy Monday! I watched Office Space this weekend. Remember that movie in all of its PC load letter goodness? So good. So so good. I had not seen it in awhile, and this scene, where the lady makes this horrible face and says in a highly annoying voice “Somebody has a case of the Mondays” makes me want to punch people in the face. Like really. I want to punch people. She should win awards for her ability to say that phrase so well it makes my skin crawl. Ew. Ew. God I love that movie though. Its a keeper. So I hope you are all not completely down today, it being Monday and all. Look on the bright side, we have this wonderful breakfast recipe for you, and you can go home and snuggle on the couch and watch Office Space after work. You could also go home and make this recipe. It will make you feel good. Eggs, delicious gravy, fried steak!!!! YES! OR you can just look forward to making it this weekend all week. Have fun.
