Good Sunday Morning!
I attempted really hard to sleep in this morning, but Abbie is set on a 5:30am schedule and pleaded to be let out at that time. She let me sleep 2 hours longer after that, but then it was a take no prisoners operation to get me out of bed at 7:30. Oh well, at least I slept in later then I normally would any other day of the week.
In an effort to stretch some tight muscles from my 12 miles run yesterday I woke up to Gentle Hatha Yoga #2 on yogadownload.com. It was very refreshing and just as gentle as they claimed. I didn’t really want to put too much effort into anything this morning so it was the perfect download.
After my gentle yoga I decided to give Polly’s new Yoga for Triathletes a try. I loved her ab work in the beginning, I am going to have to try those moves on my own! It was another great yoga session with Polly.
Derek and I have been throwing around ideas for breakfast and he mentioned having multi-grin Eggos and strawberries that we could eat. Not one to just have Eggos with strawberries (what’s the fun in that?) I asked him if he had eggs and said we could make waffle sandwiches. He gave a funny face and said “Come again?” I then told him we needed to expand his horizons with this breakfast treat.
While cooking up the brekkie we snacked on this big bowl of fruit salad.
You can learn so much from people and their breakfast choices. Derek had never thought to mix eggs with waffle, fruit with eggs or even had made homemade waffles before (Eggos do not count as homemade waffles people). I, of course, grew up with a Dad who would always top his homemade belgium waffle with a fried egg and I always took it a step further by adding fruit on top of the combo as well. Trust me the combo works!
Derek did not have Strawberry Preserves so I substituted with Fresh Strawberries and a bit of Grape Jelly in my Sammy.
I really enjoyed the fresh strawberries in the combo as opposed to just the preserves. It was very fresh and really good.
On the side I had even more fruit salad.
I could easily eat my weight in fruit salad if given the opportunity. 🙂
So what did Derek think of the new sandwich? He liked it! He said he would never think to make a waffle egg sandwich, but he would be happy to have it again. I told him he can liven it up with syrup, bacon and that he really needed to invest in strawberry preserves because grape jelly just isn’t the same. 🙂
Now we’re heading out to a trail to Roller Blade. Should be fun!
