Oh, I love thee...

My favorite meal of the day, hands down, is breakfast. You know how people always ask you what your favorite food is? Mine is pancakes. Sure, I always used to say the staples that people normally say, like pizza or chicken fingers back in the day when I'd be filling out one of those stupid e-surveys friends passed around ( But on a trip to Michigan with my family about six years ago, and for no particular reason other than to annoy my sister, I decided that from then on, my favorite food would be pancakes. (Yes, it took me a long time to make this decision. It was very important. A lot like deciding your career path and picking a mate.) So it's a long weekend...and I want to do something special for T. I decided to make breakfast this morning. (I'm really really nice like that, what can I say?)

Any good breakfast must start off with coffee. It's the nectar of the gods and the only reason I make it to work in the morning. Coffee is to Nain, as spinach is to Popeye.

What's on the menu this morning? Bacon, eggs, and blueberry waffles....

We got this skillet a few months ago at JC Penny's, and it was normally like $40, but we got it for $19, so I guess this qualifies as my Saturday Steal (See: Archives of Our Lives). I love this thing.

(Cue Homer Simpson's voice...."MMmmmm...bacon....") It's turkey bacon, yes, because we do have our health to worry about, but it's still pretty delicious.

The other day I was cleaning out our pantry, and I realized that in addition to hoarding OJ, I also hoard waffle/pancake mix. We had three boxes of the stuff. Three. I would be lying if I didn't say it was somewhat behind my decision to make waffles this morning....

Now I got this waffle iron from my sweet mother (who knows just how much I love breakfast) for Christmas, and I love this thing, too. It's so easy to clean, and it makes really good waffles, really quickly. So here we have our blueberry waffle mix (and yes, those ARE fresh blueberries!):

And scrambled eggs:

Now making all three of these things at the same time proved to be a bit tricky, but I managed. (The coffee helped just a bit)

The finished product:

After my delicious breakfast, made with love, T decided we're going out to breakfast for pancakes on Monday. Sigh, this is just one of the many reasons I'm marrying this man. He knows the way to my heart.

Have a great Saturday everyone!
