Waffle Buffet

by Meghann on May 15, 2010

This morning I was hard at work in the kitchen preparing a waffle buffet for Derek and I.

I started with a batch of Buckwheat waffles I made with a 365 Brand Mix.

An apple & pear mix that I had heated up with a little cinnamon for a couple of minutes in the microwave.

And a peanut butter sauce made up of heated peanut butter and almond milk.

‘Twas amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I topped my serving with a few cacao nibs.

It was actually Derek’s idea to have the peanut butter sauce as a topping for the waffle. He saw it on my blog earlier this week and was curious how it tasted.

Derek is a genuis, the peanut butter sauce was the perfect addition to the waffles. It added great peanut butter flavor to each and every bite without being too overwelming.

We had a guest for breakfast this morning.

We’re going swimming with dolphins!!!!! Yay!!!

I’ve ALWAYS wanted to swim with dolphins and Discovery Cove has been a dream of mine since they opened it 10 years ago in Orlando! ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek purchased the package way back in February (for my birthday), but this was the first weekend we were available to go (have I mentioned my schedule is INSANE?).

We’re about to head out the door now! I’ll be back tonight with a full recap of all the fun adventures!!

4 Evan Thomas May 15, 2010 at 8:49 am

Peanut butter and waffles? Yes please!

5 whitneydargle May 15, 2010 at 8:56 am

I also partook in waffles this morning. They, however, didn’t look as amazing as yours ๐Ÿ™‚

Those waffles look awesome! I swam with dolphins in Jamaica on my honeymoon and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. You will have a fantastic time – enjoy!

7 Meg May 15, 2010 at 9:16 am

Waffles, peanut butter, ADORABLE pups, a great boyfriend and dolphins, what more does a girl need? ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually went to Discovery Cove YEARS ago, probably right around the time they opened. It was so much fun, especially as a 13/14-year-old dolphin lover who wanted to be a marine biologist at the time. Have fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

9 Tobi May 15, 2010 at 9:40 am

I live not too far away and have never been to Discovery Cove so I can’t wait to hear all about it!!!

As for the waffle buffet….they look amazing , especially after my plain Special K with bananas……

14 Marina May 15, 2010 at 10:17 am

15 Anne P May 15, 2010 at 10:25 am

OMG…JEALOUS!!!!! I’ve ALWAYS wanted to swim with dolphins, sniff.

16 Emilyeatsclean May 15, 2010 at 10:50 am

Ohhh it sounds like you have a very fun-filled day in your future! Breakfast looks ahh-mazing!!!

17 Ashley May 15, 2010 at 10:57 am

hey meghann! i love your blog + i read it religiously!
i’ve swam with dolphins in the past and they’re amazing creatures, but after watching a documentary called the cove, i’ll never swim with dolphins or go to an aquatic park again. i don’t want to sound preachy but this is a cause i strongly believe in and think you might be interested in it.

I was going to say this exact thing. I always used to want to swim with dolphins and then I watched this documentary and it broke my heart. I could never do it now with a clear conscience or even go to an aquarium or park.

19 Jackie May 15, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I agree Ashley, The Cove is an amazing documentary. Dolphins are highly intelligent creatures are really should not be in captivity. The movie made me sick to my stomach to see what these animals go through.

20 Courtney May 15, 2010 at 11:15 am

I’ve been there and it is incredible!! You can also go in the lazy river and snorkel with stingrays. The water is REALLY COLD so make sure you get a wetsuit! Have fun!

21 cdh0904 May 15, 2010 at 11:34 am

I’m going to Discovery Cover next weekend as a present for finishing my 2nd year of law school!!! I’m so excited!!! Can’t wait to see what you think about it.

22 Rachael May 15, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I work with Greenpeace, and a common theme is we all want to swim with dolphins and whales – lucky girl!

23 Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) May 15, 2010 at 12:40 pm

dolphins!!! so jealous. someday…

24 jess May 15, 2010 at 1:10 pm

I have to agree with emilyeatsclean. I loved swimming with dolphins and I hope you have a fantastic time, but please watch the cove and learn more about dolphins in captivity.

25 theprocessofhealing May 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Wow that sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!! What a day!

26 Kilee Johnson May 15, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Girl, you are soooo lucky! I have always wanted to go swimming with dolphins! Have an amazing time!

27 Caitlin May 15, 2010 at 3:07 pm

You are going to love swimming with dolphins! I went swimming with dolphins back in high school went I went to Mexico and it was awesome. It was definitely one of the best times in my life!

28 rjkleffman May 15, 2010 at 6:10 pm

All of that food looks amazing! You take great pictures!

29 She-Fit May 15, 2010 at 7:12 pm

32 Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 15, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Those waffles looks really good! And PB sauce is a great idea!
I hope you enjoyed your day!

33 Ashley May 15, 2010 at 10:24 pm

Girl you are going to LOVE Discovery Cove!

The place is amazing. I did the Trainer for a Day package about 7 years ago. My favorite was the stingrays we got to feed. I’m sure it’s changed since they, but OMG was it a blast!

It’s kinda funny you brought this up, as I’m wearing a Discovery Cove tshirt today! What can I say, I keep my tshirts forever!

34 Sarah (Enjoying One Meal at a Time) May 15, 2010 at 10:43 pm

More proof that peanut butter is good on everything… I think I’m going to have to try this!

35 Duchess of Fork May 16, 2010 at 9:23 am

That photo of Derek kissing Maddie is priceless!! Love it. Waffles look amazing, girl!
