Waffle Girl

by Meghann on January 21, 2011

Look a friend came to run with me! πŸ™‚


Megan and I both are running the Miami Half Marathon next weekend and needed to get a semi-long run in before our crazy weekends began. She met me at my apartment early this morning and we ran 8 miles in a light drizzle of rain. We got lucky. Thirty minutes before we left it was pouring – we welcomed the slight drizzle with opened arms.

As we chatted about blogs, relationships, and running goals, the 8 miles really flew by. I’m lucky to have her as a running buddy. πŸ™‚

Since Megan had made the trip all the way to my apartment to run with me, I thought it was only fair I would make her breakfast in return.


After a quick google search I found a recipe for Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles on FitSugar that seemed fairly easy and called for ingredients I already had in my pantry. Plus, I feel like waffles are one of those meals best enjoyed with a friend.

Screw pancakes – I’m a waffle girl! πŸ™‚


Waffle toppings are where I have all the fun. I heated up an apple with some cinnamon and syrup in the microwave then drizzled it on top of the waffle with some plain yogurt, cacao nibs, and more cinnamon.


The actual waffles were just ok. Kind of bland and in need of some sweetness. Next time I would add a couple more tablespoons of sugar. Besides that they were very hearty and filling.



Enjoy your Friday everyone! Don’t worry – the weekend is almost here!

Those look so good! It’s fun that you and Megan could tackle that run together – having a running buddy is 10x better!

3 Stacy @ Every Little Thing January 21, 2011 at 11:16 am

I agree, waffles are so much better! πŸ™‚ Great toppings!

I so wish I had you two as running buddies!! It’s so snowy here…I had a planned 7 miler, but I don’t want to kill myself slipping on ice. Jealous of the Florida sunshine!!

Damn, I need a waffle maker.

7 Natalie @ Will Jog For Food January 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

Too bad the waffles didn’t taste so good…at least you have all the yummy toppings πŸ™‚

8 Kelly January 21, 2011 at 11:27 am

I couldn’t even tell you the last time I ate waffles. Probably should change that.

Those waffles look so good! I have a waffle maker at home. I should really start using it more often. The toppings are the best part! πŸ™‚

I always make waffles or pancakes when my Husband is off on the weekends, it makes the time we spend together that much more special πŸ™‚

I usually use about 3 tbsp of sugar in my waffles. Using vanilla yogurt in the recipe might help up the sweetness factor, too.

12 Meghann January 21, 2011 at 2:54 pm

that’s a good idea on using vanilla yogurt. I didn’t have any on hand today, but it’s good for future reference.

I am a pancake guy all the way πŸ™‚

haha – I LOVE my waffle iron. It was actually one of my first purchases when I moved out on my own. I knew I couldn’t live it without homemade waffles. πŸ™‚

Yum! Looks delicious!

18 Elizabeth@The Sweet Life January 21, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Waffles are so delicious–and such a great comfort food, too!

19 OrlandoPaula @ Eat, Watch, Run January 21, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Amen to the waffle comment! Although, I wouldn’t kick a pancake out of bed either.

I am also a waffle girl – too bad I married a pancake man.

I would eat waffles every day – I like them soft and not crunchy.

Pancakes look yummy:) Question – do you blog from your Ipad??
Clare @ Fitting It All In recently posted..On Balance

25 Meghann January 21, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Nope. The ipad is not productive at all for blogging. It’s similar to blogging from an iphone – good in a pinch but not ideal for everyday posts.

26 Clare @ Fitting It All In January 21, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Thanks, that’s what I was thinking. I was looking into getting a smaller device to blog from, but I think something with a keyboard would be better.

I really wish there was a good way to blog from the iPad. I love mine though. People magazine made a subscriber out of me with their app.

29 Brittaney @ The Girl That Can't Cook January 21, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I agree waffles are better when enjoyed with a friend! One of my friends and I try to make waffle/ mimosa nights a habit πŸ™‚

30 Kristin @ FoodFash January 21, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the iPad 2 so I can use it as a kitchen gadget too! Waffles also look delish.

I like waffles a lot more than pancakes as well. They just seem more fun πŸ™‚

ps-so jealous that you Orlando girls have so many runners around! I can’t seem to find anyone with the same goals as me where I live. Ahh well!

Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

Have you tried joining a running group? When I first moved to Orlando I joined the Orlando Runner’s Club and still stay in contact with some of the runners from the Sunday morning group.

I’m definitely a waffle gal. πŸ™‚ I like how they get crispy outside and soft/chewy inside. I usually eat frozen, whole wheat, organic waffles, but now I want to make my own! Weekend challenge? πŸ˜‰

Nothing better than a good breakfast after a long run! Especially a wet run. Yikes!

Yum! Nothing better than delicious waffles after a run.

41 Ashley January 21, 2011 at 2:48 pm

I’m a pancake girl. Its probably because I don’t have a waffle maker to convert me. Those look yummy.

42 Gill (snaxandthecity) January 21, 2011 at 3:00 pm
