Two dollars a waffle. Two. Dollars. That’s what I’ve been paying for the last 3ish years to support the husband’s breakfast habit. The saddest part about this is that it took me not being able to find his beloved Kashi waffles to figure this out – and to decide that I could, in fact, sacrifice 20 minutes out of my Sunday to make him a batch of waffles for the week. Wife of the year right here.

Eat Yourself Skinny: Whole Wheat Banana Waffles(pinned here)

Nailed It/Failed It Whole Wheat Banana Waffles

Verdict

Nailed it. The husband told me he actually prefers these because they keep him full longer. Ahhh the magical powers of real food.

These aren’t sweet so I wouldn’t recommend eating them plain, but when topped with peanut butter or maple syrup, they are delectable.

Alterations

I used real sugar instead of Stevia.

Brunch has always been one of those mystery meals to me. Probably because I’m a creature of habit which means I like to eat my meals at “normal” meal times, and having brunch would obviously blow that all to hell. But since the husband worked all weekend and my church committee meeting meant we wouldn’t even get to have dinner together on Sunday, I threw caution to the wind and made brunch.

Verdict

I need to make brunch more often. When I first suggested brunch, the hubs thought I meant go out to brunch and seemed slightly disappointed when I told him I’d be making it. Fast forward to Sunday morning when he repeatedly told me that it was “as good as anything you’d get at a restaurant”. As you can tell by the pictures taken after we had devoured half of everything, I was in agreement.

Alterations

Quiche

I skipped the mushrooms because I don’t do fungus. But I wanted to keep the garlic so I browned it in a bit of olive oil and added the garlic minus the olive oil to the egg mixture.

Oatmeal

None. I know. I can hardly believe it myself.
