It's early as I write this. Strike one.

My mind is fried from all the turkey coverage of the last two weeks. Strike two.

But when I look at this "breakfast of champions" created by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake, I experience a moment of clarity. A singularity of purpose. And that purpose is to procure the ingredients for this cheese-grits chile relleno dish and knock one out of the park.

I mean, look at that thing. Based on a recipe by Matt Lee and Ted Lee, it's all roasted poblano peppers (yum) filled with cheese grits (also yum), topped with roasted tomato gravy (oh, yeah). Plus, don't you love it when a food also serves as a serving vessel for itself?

I don't know how you could improve upon this thing.
