Valentine Breakfast {in under 5 minutes}!

I’ve noticed that the older I get, the less of a “morning person” I am becoming. On average, I snooze my alarm clock for at least 45 minutes every morning {the husband looooves it} and once I do get up, my first stop is the coffee pot. 

Since Valentine’s Day falls during the workweek this year, I decided to surprise Matt with an early V-Day breakfast this past Sunday. Last year, I spent hours perfecting cake batter pancakes {read about it here}. However, this year I got clever and spent a grand total of 5 minutes preparing a plate of festive heart shaped waffles. 
My secret...
Yep, Aunt Jemima helped me out. All I had to do was toast and cut ‘em!

And Matt loved it. He didn’t even have a clue that it took me less than 5 minutes to prepare…well, until he asked for seconds {ergh}. 

Because it was so quick and easy to pull off, I may even surprise the hubs with round two on Thursday morning.
Are you making a special breakfast for someone on Thursday?

  4. Great idea!! I am making a heartshaped fruit salad, where you just cut the fruit out with a cookie cutter. These would be cute together.

  7. What a sweet wife you are! The waffles looked adorable and sure they were tasty;) I am going to be out of town Thursday for work but planning to leave something heart shaped in the fridge for him to find. Our tradition is heart shaped pizza for V-Day dinner but having to wait until the weekend for that...

  12. So sweet!

    I leave work earlier than my husband, so on the counter I left a picture of us, two red mugs with chalkboards on them (with our nicknames we gave eachother early on in our courtship), and a couple of cheese danishes that I cut out from a heart-shaped cookie cutter!
