Expanding Others Horizons

by Meghann on March 22, 2009

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 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now we’re heading out to a trail to Roller Blade. Should be fun!

Have fun roller-blading!

16 Chelsea March 22, 2009 at 11:46 am

Annonymous, I agree.. I keep hearing about Derek but am never sure if they are an item or not! Clarification Meghann?

17 Kate March 22, 2009 at 11:52 am

haha! I’m so glad you showed a guy how to turn breakfast into an easy healthy meal! I would prob just tell my bf..”it’s like those waffle sammies at mcdonalds…eat it:P”

18 Hallie March 22, 2009 at 12:02 pm

I can be such a fruit-aholic too! It’s just so good. But I guess it’s better to eat your weight in fruit than say, ice cream, right? Although don’t get me wrong, I could do that too ๐Ÿ˜‰

19 Sharon March 22, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Oh wow, definitely didn’t think of the fruit!!

20 Erica March 22, 2009 at 12:40 pm

Yum! I want you to come make me breakfast tomorrow- ok? Enjoy the day!!

I’ve always enjoyed eggs with fruit, but never thought of taking the combo to the next level! So simple and yet so brill.

38 Hangry Pants March 22, 2009 at 6:44 pm

I could eat fruit all day, too! Never had it on fruit though.

Also, don’t think I didn’t notice that Derek was at your apartment for breakfast. mmmm hmmmm. ๐Ÿ˜€
