|Guess what's in here. Nope. It's eggs.|
I love breakfast food. But my fondness for the eggs, muffins and the like is not simply related to the tap dance it does on my taste buds. When served as dinner, breakfast food is basically time travel with your palate. See if you can follow my logic.
If I have breakfast for dinner, I can imagine it's still the morning. I'm essentially tricking my brain into thinking I didn't spend the last 11 hours (with no overtime pay) doing my boss's job while watching her decide she's ill-suited to run the company she co-founded. After dinner, I quickly go to bed and hope I dream about going fishing, taking a bike ride or laying on the couch. If this occurs, it's like it's like the weekend just started or a secret vacation.
|They're better than they look|
I learned that have a fondness for brown-tinged, circular objects with red accents. Turkey burger -- brown and round with a little red (BBQ sauce). Slightly overcooked eggs -- brown and round with a little red (sun-dried tomatoes). Even the sushi isn't far off from this color scheme. I wonder if I was a cow patty in a former life.
|Same color scheme, different meal.|
If I can satisfy the consumer by delivering bland products that look pretty much alike while exerting minimum effort, I'd be the perfect studio executive. Or if that doesn't work, I'll keep working on time travel with eggs.
