Hey-oh! I hope you all had a delightful weekend - truly.
Holla at ya, weekends! You are a real lifesaver, you are.
When it comes to weekends, I love a good breakfast. Monday - Friday I am a bowl of Cheerios gal, but weekends present the cherished opportunity to sit back, relax with a cup of coffee and enjoy the first meal of the day.
My love of breakfast foods is across the board - I mean, please - it's all kinda delish BUT, I have a new favorite. And it's so simple, it's not even funny.
Here are the four ingredients:
2 Multi-grain Eggo Waffles (don't judge)
2 - 3 T. REAL Maple Syrup
1 Banana, sliced
5 - 8 strawberries, sliced
Toast waffles. Heat syrup in microwave for 20 seconds and pour on top of toasted waffles. Add sliced bananas and strawberries on top of waffles. Eat. Love. Surf Internet. Watch DVR'd Oprah episodes. Watch DVR'd Glee episodes. Drink more coffee. Get ready only when you feel like it. Feel free to not get ready at all. That's what weekends are for.
1) You could totes use real waffles but I have a thing for Eggo waffles. They are totally awesome and perfect and easy and quick.
2) I am the first one to defend imitation maple syrup. It has a permanent place in my life, right next to Splenda and Pace Picante salsa, but I highly recommend real maple syrup for this one. It brings out the natural sweetness in the fruit in a way that imitation maple syrup just doesn't do.
3) You must pour the syrup on the waffles before adding the fruit. It soaks into the waffle and is just the best way to do it. Don't doubt me on this one.
Happy Monday, little lovelies!
