Breakfast on the Balcony

If only breakfast could start with this EVERY day:


Mmmmm veggies! 

I’m heading to Dallas for training this week, so the BF and I decided to cook up a special “last” breakfast… Oh, and by “we” I mean ME, of course.  There’s only one morning person in this relationship.  There’s also only one pants wearer.  I’ll let you guess who that might be 😉

It was a crazy bright and sunny morning, perfect for enjoying a little grub on the balcony.  Check out that beautiful tablescape!


Clearly getting food in our bellies ASAP was at the top of the priority list.

I was especially excited to make breakfast this morning because I’ve been dying to try out my new Oxo Eggbeaters that came in my Food Blog Forum swag bag!


YES!  I love gadgets!!!  And how cool are these eggbeaters?  The beater section pops off the handle and is dishwasher safe.  Honestly, I’ve never beaten eggs with egg beaters before–I usually just opt for a fork and whisk with all my might til my arm falls off.  Holy cow did these beaters make life a heck of a lot easier.  It was like the parting of the Red Sea…. the breakfast edition.  I swear I could hear angels singing as I beat those eggs to perfection. 

Using my beaten-to-perfection bowl o’ eggs, I made up a big batch of Mary’s special eggs (a list of the goodies I tossed in is at the bottom of the post).DSCF8125

Each serving went onto a low carb tortilla:


Topped with some low-fat pepper jack cheese and a bit of Frank’s Red Hot:


I also cooked up a pumpkin waffle using my Trader Joe’s Pumpkin pancake and waffle mix:


The waffle was good but not fall out of your chair delicious.  Apparently, if you don’t fall out of your chair the recipe is crap in my book.  I’m going to give the mix another shot in pancake form and see if it’s any tastier.

The wraps were fabulous.  You really can’t go wrong with the “special” combo!  I like to pop mine on the George Foreman grill for a few minutes to melt the cheese.


I mean, really.  REALLY.
