Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

I have climbed a ladder once in my life.

A real, genuine ladder.  Not a step stool.  A ladder.

It was in my tenth grade acting class when we took a tour of the auditorium.  It was easily my favorite class at a time when going to school was pure torture.  I liked the teacher, the class was fun, and it brought me out of my shell more than a little.

I would have enjoyed the tour more today as I love going to the theatre and would have loved even more to see the inner workings of it.  And while I did have a good time exploring with the class, it wasn’t easy.

After ascending a spiral staircase, it was time to climb that ladder to get to the catwalk.  Guys, if you’ve never walked up or down a spiral staircase, a real deal spiral staircase, not the kind in mansions for looks, you do not understand the kind of torture device it is.

Maybe it’s because both of my parents have vertigo, but I hung on with both hands (both hands!) and barely made it up or down.  My brain could not understand how to use this thing.  I don’t think I’ve been on a spiral staircase since and am always looking to avoid it when house hunting.

Once I was off the taunting staircase, the ladder stood in front of me.  I’d never climbed a ladder before and didn’t know how.  I mean, obviously I understood the general idea behind climbing a ladder, but I didn’t know how to implement it with it cylindrical rungs and slippery metal.

I started to climb and stopped, halting progress for everyone.  Those behind me tried not to appear impatient.  Those in front of me talked and wondered what the problem was.  “Laura,” I heard them all say.

Despite that fact that none of us were really friends in the overcrowded class that brought together students from all grades, social standings, and walks of life, a couple girls leaned over to offer words of encouragement and instructions on how to climb.

I made it up.  And down, though I don’t remember down much.  And for the rest of the day, my legs shook like Jell-O.  But I did it!

I also made this Waffle Breakfast Sandwich, but it’s so much easier to make than climbing a ladder.  Two waffles (which, let’s be honest, I cooked in the microwave even though it says not to.  Sorry not sorry!), a microwave egg or egg substitute omelet, and gooey, melty cheese.

Bam!  Breakfast is served.  Dad loves this for breakfast made with egg substitute.  You could totally jazz it up with bacon, ham, sausage, or even a handful of spinach, but it’s a really hearty meal as it.

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 1 sandwich

Ingredients

2 waffles, homemade or store bought, I used Eggo waffles
3 large eggs, beaten or ½ cup egg substitute
1 slice Colby Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat the waffles according to manufacturers’ instructions, or go rogue like I did and use the microwave.
  2. Place the eggs or egg substitute in a microwave safe bowl, giving them enough room to puff. I use a regular soup bowl. Cook in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Check for doneness and continue microwaving in 30 second increments until almost fully cooked. Top with cheese and microwave an additional 30 seconds.
  3. Place the “omelet” on one of the waffles, top with the other and serve immediately!

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches #SundaySupper

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

The song “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” makes me cry.  It’s a good song, maybe even a great one.  It is a bit sad, and I relate to the sadness in different ways than Mike Posner intended, but the beautiful thing about music is that we can all find meaning in it.

More than the sadness of the song, is the memory behind it.  When Mom and I went to see Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas this summer, Mike Posner opened for them.  We missed most of his set, but arrived just in time to see his two biggest songs: “Cooler than Me” and “I Took a Pill in Ibiza.”  Since it was a hometown crowd for him, it was really something to see.

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

“I Took a Pill in Ibiza” is such a great song live, with the band and their tremendous talent shining.  It filled me with emotion and passion, the crowd waving their hands and singing along, the music booming through my body.  I wish I had seen the rest of his set, but those songs were the kickoff to a fabulous night.

Was it the best concert I’ve ever seen?  No, but it was a stellar night.  One I spent with my favorite person on earth, doing one of my favorite things, listening to music live.

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

While 2016 was not my favorite year, not even close, since it was filled with so much professional disappointment, in so many ways it was a wonderful year.  One in which I had so much fun and pushed myself to be a better person.  I have grown and changed and I can see that in myself.

That song will probably always make me cry, but I welcome those tears.  They will remind me of everything 2016 was and wasn’t and make me keep fighting for the future and more great memories.

When trying to make things happen and have fun and do all the things I want to do with life, it is sometimes a struggle to make dinner, but I still do it nearly every single night.  Easy recipes like these Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches are the perfect way to do so.

Chicken and Cheese Pita Sandwiches

These start with pita pockets.  I used some leftovers from a dinner out, but your favorite from a restaurant will be perfect.  Then there is some rotisserie chicken, cheese, lettuce, and cranberry jam for something different, and dinner is served.  It doesn’t get easier than that!

May 2017 be full of great memories, dreams come true, and lots of homemade meals shared with the ones we love.

The Ultimate Cheez-It Grilled Cheese

My parents and I are always cheering on our favorite basketball teams, especially this time of year as college teams are just about to start their tournament and professional teams are ramping up for the playoffs.

We often have two TVs going to catch as much of the action as possible and we always pick our favorite teams even if local ones are out of the running. It’s so fun to cheer on teams and players, and it’s even more fun when I pick the winners 😉

Shopping at Walmart

But it’s no fun to watch sports events of any kind without a great snack. I always have a stash of Cheez-It products in the pantry to turn to when I need a crunchy TV watching snack. I love their new, first-ever crunchy puff Crunch’d in both Cheddar Cheese and Hot and Spicy. They, as all Cheez-It products, are made with 100% real cheese.

Cheez-It Crunch'd and Cheez-It Grooves

My favorite snack, though, are Cheez-It Grooves. The Sharp White Cheddar are my go to snack, but the Zesty Cheddar Ranch are pretty awesome too. They are part cracker, part chip, all thin-crispy awesomeness! I seriously stocked up on both Crunch’d and Grooves on my last trip to Walmart. I don’t want to run out in the middle of a game!

While I certainly don’t complain about snacking on Cheez-It products plain, I wanted to make something fun and delicious with them. Enter the Ultimate Cheez-It Grilled Cheese.
