I treated this morning like a Sunday–-waffle-style!
Yep, this was an amazing day to start a Humpday all right! I used the last 1/2 cup of my box of Kodiak Cakes Mix (need to get more of this, asap) and then topped my huge waffle with 1/3 cup Oikos, blueberries and toasted sliced almonds. Get this: I AM OUT OF MAPLE SYRUP! And that stuff is just so darn expensive that I need to wait until I get a paycheck to buy more. So good, so worth it, but so expensive.
So today is one of my favorite days of the week because I get to go to the power yoga class I love at noon, which was partly why I ate this big breakfast—lunch won’t be until 2:00! This class always totally kicks my butt but the final savasana is oh so worth it. 😉
I’m online for the next few hours working on writing another True/Slant article (hmm what shall today be?!) and doing some random side projects. Twitter me! 😛

What a delicious breakfast! Not sure if I will make it to Noon power, although I really want to! Have a doc appt…blah. If I don’t see you, have a FABULOUS time and give Jen my love =)
Have a great one girl!

How yummy!! Have a wonderful time at yoga!

Jenna, your food pictures always look amazing. Is it the camera, or do you process them with any software? I use Picasa occasionally (it’s free & easy to use) but mine dont look even half as good! x
jennaJuly 29, 2009 at 9:13 am
Its the camera. I don’t use any special software but I do use a tiny Canon Powershot camera that totally rocks the house. 🙂

katherineJuly 29, 2009 at 9:11 am
Your breakfast looks amazing and very satisfying! Good luck with your work this morning and enjoy Power Yoga!

Daria (Summer of the CSAs)July 29, 2009 at 9:20 am
Want. that. waffle!
WhitneyJuly 29, 2009 at 9:25 am
mmmmm love the waffles. Who needs maple syrup when you got bloobs and yogurt?
Hilary (Red Head, Yellow Dog)July 29, 2009 at 9:29 am
nothin better to get you through the week then some waffles! have fun at yoga today 🙂
Lauren (Runandrejoice)July 29, 2009 at 9:29 am
Yummyyyy! Agree x 1000 on the maple syrup!
Shannon (The Daily Balance)July 29, 2009 at 9:34 am
what a great way to start the day! I wish I had time to make myself homemade waffles on a weekday!

Thank goodness Dexter is so cute…
Megan (The Runner's Kitchen)July 29, 2009 at 9:41 am
blueberry and yogurt topped waffles + yoga sounds like a great wednesday! i need to get to yoga asap – my neck and shoulders are super tight today. ahh, stress.
SavannahJuly 29, 2009 at 9:41 am
We *make* organic maple syrup at my parents’ estate – tap the trees, boil it, the whole deal. I’ll happy send you some if you’ll email me!
BecJuly 29, 2009 at 9:44 am
mmm yumm 🙂
Andee (Runtolive)July 29, 2009 at 9:44 am
Wow your waffle looks divine! Have a great humpday!
Allie KatieJuly 29, 2009 at 9:46 am
Waffles always remind me of college dorm cafeterias! My college had our logo on the waffle iron to brand all the waffles–crucial for football game day school pride at breakfast time!
EveJuly 29, 2009 at 9:46 am
That looks divine!! Seems like you did well without the maple syrup, the yogurt & blueberries make such a great topping. Going without the maple syrup for some time will make it even more worth it when you do eventually buy it!
Cait (Cait's Plate)July 29, 2009 at 9:52 am
HOLY YUM Jenna! That waffle looks amazing. And yay for a Dexter appearance! Haha
Christie @ Quit Your DietJuly 29, 2009 at 9:55 am
That waffle looks amazing!
Can’t wait to see the newest article!
MarathonValJuly 29, 2009 at 9:56 am
I hear yag, my huge bottel from WH is $20!!!!! And it SHOULD last me a long time, but I use it to bake a lot so sadly it doesn’t last that long after all lol.
Graze With MeJuly 29, 2009 at 9:57 am
I love waffles, wish I had time to make them in the mornings though 🙁
Your cat is so funny, how is it that the one thing they know they’re not supposed to lay on and get all hairy is the only thing they want? Mine always sleep in the clean laundry baskets. Never when they’re full of dirty clothes though, no – always clean…

I have become such a greek yogurt fan! I may not even need the maple syrup! I hate that that the artificially flavored, preservative laden syrup is so cheap. But, the real deal is almost $10 a bottle!!
Krissy - Single ServingJuly 29, 2009 at 10:08 am
Waffles and blueberries (they’re the one berry I really don’t care for – though I know they are so good for me!) don’t usually don’t do it for me but those pictures look absolutely amazing.
EllenJuly 29, 2009 at 10:22 am
check out maple syrup at costco! last time i was there i saw JUGS of it for the same price as a small bottle at the grocery store. i grew up with real maple syrup (literally, my neighbors had a business tapping trees) and couldn’t imagine going without.
LoriJuly 29, 2009 at 10:26 am
That waffle looks yummy! My kitty loves to lay (and claw at) my gym bag. She thinks it is hers 😀
DeniseJuly 29, 2009 at 10:27 am
oh my gosh … a waffle with no maple ? blasphemy!
i do agree though, soooo dang expensive ! have a great yoga class!
katie sJuly 29, 2009 at 10:29 am
Awww what a cutie! Dexter likes to lay on/in just about everything, doesn’t he?! Your breakfast makes me wish I didn’t already eat my bowl of cereal so I could have delectable waffles!!! Hmmm I think that will be on the menu for tomorrow 😉 Can’t wait to read the new article!!!
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and HopeJuly 29, 2009 at 10:33 am
What a lovely “comfort food” breakfast to start out the day. SO delicious! I’ve actually found that I like adding agave nectar onto my waffles and pancakes even better than maple syrup. It adds the perfect amount of sweetness without tasting too sugary. 🙂
TaylorJuly 29, 2009 at 10:46 am
That waffle look ah-mazing!!! My cat loves trying to get into bags, but he’s so big and cant fit into them! Did your cat try to fit into your purse?
Mandy AJuly 29, 2009 at 11:01 am
I can’t find the Kodiak Mix anywhere here in TN 🙁 Not at any health food stores or Publix 🙁 I’d love to get some.. I may just need to order it online!
Meggilizz--Meggie's MunchiesJuly 29, 2009 at 11:03 am
The waffle looks awesome!! 🙂 Have fun at yoga! I really need to get back into my practice 🙁
DevaJuly 29, 2009 at 11:05 am
Waffles are awesome and delicious 🙂
Kailey (SnackFace)July 29, 2009 at 11:14 am
Oh wow, such a gorgeous breakfast! I totally agree about the maple syrup- so expensive, but so worth it! I’m currently holding out until I return to Ohio to buy agave nectar. Have a lovely day and a blast at power yoga!
Madelin @ What is for breakfast?July 29, 2009 at 11:14 am
Your kitty is such a cutie! Is he a Burmese?
Evan ThomasJuly 29, 2009 at 11:22 am
A waffle without maple syrup just seems naked. I get the TJ Maple Agave blend–so good and subtly sweet
JBJuly 29, 2009 at 11:30 am
could that waffle be ANY more gorgeous?! i don’t think so. it’s almost as gorgeous as dexter!
Mary (Food & Fun)July 29, 2009 at 11:36 am
You got me craving waffles. Maybe I will make it breakfast for dinner tonight and whip some up!
KyleJuly 29, 2009 at 11:40 am
Get the maple syrup at costco! Haha it’s a huge jug, but I’m sure it’ll keep and be cheaper in the long run.
SusanJuly 29, 2009 at 11:45 am
Lovely looking waffle!! A belgian waffle maker is definitely on my list of kitchen things to get… I always make a special breakfast for myself mid-week. Makes getting out of bed easier 🙂
MAyaJuly 29, 2009 at 11:56 am
I agree with everyone–gorgeous photos!
AngharadJuly 29, 2009 at 11:56 am
Your waffles are indeed, the prettiest thing ever! Happy Hump Day!!
Just saw the work space photo with wine as well – all about that!
meganJuly 29, 2009 at 12:13 pm
Love the waffle and the Longchamp bag…I have a huge one on brown 🙂
EatingRDJuly 29, 2009 at 12:18 pm
mmmm . . . yogurt is the best on waffles! Have a great yogaaahh class. Your kitty is too cute!
SarahJuly 29, 2009 at 12:22 pm
Hope you have fun at the yoga class, that sounds amazing! Silly kitty 🙂
RebeccaJuly 29, 2009 at 12:23 pm
OO your waffle looks so good!! I need a waffle iron! I love having weekend breakfasts during the week! Except that since I’m on summer break, everyday is a weekend day for me 🙂
KJuly 29, 2009 at 12:27 pm
Your waffles look delicious with or without maple syrup!!
JuliaJuly 29, 2009 at 12:30 pm
Hey Jenna! In light of your recent trip to Cali, I thought you’d find this article interesting:
Have a good day!
RebecaJuly 29, 2009 at 12:30 pm
I want that waffle so badly!
OMG Dexter’s knows cuteness when he sees it… he has good taste!
KristenJuly 29, 2009 at 12:45 pm
Wow!! Just a large waffle till 2, AND yoga? Was this a late breakfast? O.o hehe
SaraJuly 29, 2009 at 12:50 pm
Jenna, if you’re ever near a Trader Joe’s again, get their “Maple Agave Blend” — it’s delicious, cheaper, AND fewer calories than regular syrup!
RoseJuly 29, 2009 at 1:04 pm
OMG. I think these are the best waffles I have EVER seen. So delicious!
JessicaJuly 29, 2009 at 1:12 pm
cute waffle lol!
i like dexters “bed” lol.
stephanieJuly 29, 2009 at 1:20 pm
Hi, I love your blog! I found you through the Murphy Goode interviews. Did you get that job? You are so lucky! I have diagnosed myself with some sort of gluten allergy. Got any good gluten-free diet ideas?
AprilJuly 29, 2009 at 1:34 pm
What a cute picture of Dexter!
The waffle looks fab.
Amanda @ Cakes and AleJuly 29, 2009 at 1:36 pm
I go through the same debate with maple syrup. Trader Joe’s, however, sells some more moderately priced varieties, which is great for the budget!
CarolynJuly 29, 2009 at 1:38 pm
I’m gonna have to make some Fiber One pancakes (awesome mix…a little sweet and very light and fluffy) this weekend. Your post is making me crave carbs!
P.S. I’m giving away a free container of Spirutein on my blog!
brittJuly 29, 2009 at 2:00 pm
that waffle looks amazing!
Cynthia (It all changes)July 29, 2009 at 2:06 pm
That is my favorite way to eat waffles too. Hunni just likes regular syrup but always mix some greek yogurt, honey and bluberries with some almonds to top mine. Delicious!
JessJuly 29, 2009 at 3:25 pm
I like yogurt and fruit on pancakes/waffles. Sometimes I’ll use a fruit spread. Rarely maple syrup.
JessJuly 29, 2009 at 3:30 pm
waffles for breakfast; what a great idea 🙂 we never do that in belgium 🙂 funny but i guess it’s delicious!
allijagJuly 29, 2009 at 5:22 pm
Dexter’s got expensive taste! 🙂 Love the breakfast – very pretty!
SusieJuly 29, 2009 at 11:32 pm
I found a hug jug of pure maple syrup at Costco! Couple bucks more for a tonnnn more 🙂
