Atypical Waffle

I took a twenty minute walk to this waffle joint and I nearly walked right by because it’s set back between two buildings. Nothing about the place was typical and I loved it.

There was also a coffee station and more seating around back.

The Number Seven: Smoked brown sugar’d bacon, smashed avo, & goat cheese

I wouldn’t have selected this on my own but the reviews raved about it. I am so glad I went for it. Each bite was an explosion of flavors. Easily the best waffle I’ve ever had.

Nutella Chocolate Lovers: Nutella, strawberries, whip, & chocolate drizzle

I contemplated ordering both of these waffles right away but held off. After one bite of the number seven I knew I’d be making a second order. Dessert for breakfast is always a good decision.

City Tacos

Yesterday was Taco Tuesday and I was starving after the flight, so we went straight to this little taco joint, called City Tacos. There was a line the entire time we were there, which was after 9pm.

I had fish, steak, pork, chorizo, and shrimp. I couldn’t even pick a favorite because they were all amazing and unique.

Kodiak Cakes Cornbread

Last night I made the Kodiak Cakes Cornbread Mix I had bought earlier this week. It was a good opportunity to use my cast iron skillet and I followed the pro tip on the box for an extra moist cornbread. There wasn’t anything “extra” about it, but it is delicious. I’ll definitely buy the mix again.

Real Good Pizza

One of my friends at the gym had tried a frozen pizza made by Real Good Foods Co. that looked interesting, so I bought a couple of them.

The crust is made from chicken and parmesan cheese! There are two servings so it makes a quick meal containing 8 grams of carbs, 32 grams of fat, and 50 grams of protein.

I hade this one for lunch today. I followed the instructions to microwave it for 4 minutes, which made a huge mess when the cheese flowed over the cardboard disc, so next time I’ll do it on a separate plate. Then I put it in a pan for a couple of minutes firm up the “crust.”

It was “real good” and the crust was much better than I expected.

Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are quickly becoming a favorite for breakfast. They are so easy to make. Mix a bunch of stuff together, seal it up, put it in the fridge for the night, and eat cold in the morning.

I have a big box of instant oatmeal packets from Sam’s Club so that is what I’m using now, but I’ve read other oats can alter the flavor and texture a lot. Here’s the “recipe” I came up with.

The beauty is you can mix whatever you want. There are a lot of “recipes” out there if you do Google searches as well.

Do you make overnight oats? What is your favorite way?
