When I first started working in Burnaby I thought eating breakfast from the cafeteria might be a problem. I had visions of me eating bacon, hash browns and sausage links every day, leading to even more portly self. Luckily that hasn’t happened.
I think I’ve had bacon, hash browns, and sausage maybe four or five times in the last three months. I actually only consistently get breakfast from the cafeteria on Wednesdays and Fridays. On Fridays they usually have french toast though occasionally they might pancakes. I’m a big fan of both so I have either one slice of french toast or single pancake (I’m reasonable with the portions).
My favourite, however, is on Wednesdays when they serve freshly made waffles with your choice of two fruit selections and whipped cream. The cafeteria has these waffle-making machines that makes a waffle from batter to finished product in about two minutes. They make it right on the spot for you. Then you get a choice of two fruits from cantaloupe, honeydew melon, strawberries, and pineapples. I think I may have forgotten a fruit or two. Anyways, I always pick strawberries and pineapples. I know I shouldn’t but I also choose to have whipped cream. Once you’re given your waffle with fruits and whip, you can add maple syrup and a berry compote.
When I walk back to my desk with this monster of a waffle, it’s usually towering with fruit, whipped cream, berry compote, and syrup. It’s my favourite breakfast item. I’m wondering how much work it would be for me to make it at home. It’s probably a lot of work.
