Breakfast Date with Shannon

On Saturday I got to finally meet a blogger I had recently started following (well 2 or so months ago).  When I found out she actually lived in my area, I immediately planned a means of attack…I mean…hang outShannon is fabulous, she is highly intelligent (dietetics major is no joke) and just a down to earth funny person.  It was certainly one of the highlights of being home and we have already made plans for another breakfast date.

Plus she went out on Black Friday and scored some serious deals.  Jealous because I have yet to start my Christmas or birthday shopping.  Too many people born in December.  Kidding.

So yes long story short, we went to a Restaurant called Baker’s Crust and I had a hard time choosing breakfast.  They had a lot of smoked salmon options as well as pancakes, waffles…ect. That being an understatement, I tend to get eggs a lot of the time because I can cook pancakes…I can’t cook eggs or omelets to save my life.  They look like goo.

So I got a goat cheese and crab omelet with spicy jalapeno toast.  You see, the jalapeño toast is important because the waiter proceeded to fist bump me and say great choice.  He later became a very obsessive, chatty and talkative waiter.  He was quite nice though, just willing to talk your ear off.

We spent the better of two hours just chatting and was such a nice morning…Though I was surprised the waiter didn’t follow us to the car.

Question for you:

  1. 1.       What is the weirdest waiter story you have?
  2. 2.       Do you like to eat out for breakfast?

Waffles…on Monday

I haven’t been posting waffle recipe lately. I’ve gone back into a waffle mood (versus my eggs) so I’ve been somewhat experimenting in the kitchen. By experimenting, I mean adding things together and sticking them on my waffle iron and hoping they are good. I don’t stray too far from the grain of easy cooking. Or “cooking” that takes more than 5 minutes.

2/3 of cup of flour
1 egg
2 tsp of baking powder
¼ cup feta or goat cheese (I like both of them…so I choose whatever is stocked)
½ cup water
Some kale and garlic
Spices I just dumped in: Garlic and red pepper.  If I had onion I would probably add that too.
1.  Saute the kale as you normally would.
2. Mix egg, water, flour, baking powder and spices together. Then add the kale followed by cheese.
3. Pour into waffle maker and let cook normally.
These savory waffles are awesome and I’ve recently began to enjoy them as much as sweet waffles.

This is how my recipe posts are. Short and to the point…I have no stories to share about them and they take the same amount of time as actually cooking.
Questions for you:
1. Do you like quick recipes or are you a champ?
2. Savory or sweet breakfast?
I feel savory waffles are more of a brunch type recipe.
