WIAW: Wafflewich For the Win

It’s wa-wa-Wednesday!  I’m not sure why, but I’ve been in the best mood all week.  Maybe my endorphins are still flowing like crazy from Sunday’s race?

4-30 Charlie

Speaking of flowing, do y’all remember the group TLC? Rumor has it they’re getting back together!  I personally was a bigger fan of the boy bands back in the day [N’Sync, specifically Lance, swoon] but I also enjoyed singing about Waterfalls…  Go, go, Jason Waterfalls. 

Haha yes, I shamefully admit that for the longest time I thought they were singing about a man named Jason Waterfall.  Humor me and someone please tell me that you did too?!

Let’s keep things flowing and move onto my my eats from yesterday.  Holy YUM, yesterday was apparently a day full of salty + sweet and lots of tastiness – I ate at least one thing at every meal that made me wonder why I haven’t eaten ___ before.  All new eats are noted with an asterisk* :)

Thanks Jenn for hosting another tasty link-up!


I grew up drinking Folgers brand because my dad was a big fan, but nowadays my heart belongs elsewhere – the best part of waking up is Starbucks in your cup!

4:30 Breakfast


TJ’s frozen Very Chery Berry blend, egg whites stuffed with mozzarella cheese + Canadian Bacon*, & a TJ’s Cranberry Orange Bran Muffin smothered with honey

4-30 Lunch

fresh veggies, Kettle Brand Bakes Sea Salt Chips, a banana, & a CranBran VitaTop*


wafflewich* FTW [for the win] – dijon mustard + mashed avocado + honey smoked turkey sandwiched between Van’s Waffles


apple slices & an Odwalla Super Protein Bar

4-30 Dinner

veggie-filled salad, Williams-Sonoma butternut squash puree* [served as soup], & avo tuna salad* on top of rice cakes


rice cakes topped with cocoa cottage cheese + dark chocolate chips

Question:  What’s the tastiest thing you’ve eaten recently?

Question:  If you had to choose one, would you choose N’Sync or the Backstreet Boys?

Whatcha Think?

  1. Wait your favorite was Lance too?! I feel like no one else liked him more than Justin or JC but Lance was definitely my fave boy band man. Nsync ALL THE WAY – I hated BSB. Your instagram pics of breakfast are seriously what get me out of bed in the morning and into the kitchen to eat :)

  2. You do love your waffles. I never thought of making a sandwich out of them but boy does that look mighty tasty. Charlie’s face just draws you in right away, that kid needs a modeling deal

  3. I don’t know why I’ve never thought about this idea but it is GENIUS! I’m going to move in with you to your new place- you said you have more room, right? I need someone to cook for me so I can instagram prettier meals 😉

  4. I had a wafflewich for breakfast this morning! Those things are seriously unbeatable. I was never huge into the boy band thing, but I remember getting in BSB before I ever listened to NSync, so I’m gonna have to go with them 😉

  5. What? You can’t ask that question!! Haha. It’s SO hard to pick… I love NSYNC because of JT, but I know more Backstreet Boys songs because I was given a copy of Millennium when I was younger and memorized each and every one (also made up some dance moves, but no need to share that 😉 ).

    I think your savory version of a wafflewich looks amazing. I’ve only ever seen versions with egg+cheese or peanut butter+banana but a turkey wafflewich sounds great!

    • Oh my goodness, I have some hilarious memories of my friends and I dancing the night away in our PJs at sleepovers to boy bands 😛

  6. Gimmie that wafflewich …. NOW 😉 It looks so amazing and I’m pretty sure I have to try it!!

  7. Oh girl let me at the wafflewich please! I need one of those in my life right now. Oh god I was obsessed with boy bands, oh wait I still am. I have a playlist on my spotify account called 90s were my Jams lol although I guess they were still a thing in the early 2000s.

  8. i am going to make a waffle sandwich as soon as humanly possible. i don’t know why i’ve never thought to make a savory sandwich on a waffle and lately i haven’t been feeling the egg sandwiches. you are a genius. i have some apple cinnamon waffles which could be interesting in a sort of savory sweet combo…i’m gonna get on that. i have been debating trying tuna fish for the LONGEST time but i had it so long ago and didn’t like it and so have just assumed i wouldn’t like it still. i think i might need to give it another shot though because lately it’s been looking really good to me.

    • Ooo those waffles sound delic, I’ll have to look for some of those myself! My momma isn’t a fan of fish but always had tuna fish salad in the fridge so I grew up eating it – love it as a melt!

  9. I don’t care if they’re considered stereotypical diet foods – I’ll forever love rice cakes. They just make the perfect base for any kind of toppings. And even though I was never really big on the boy band scene, I’m going to have to go with N’Sync over BSB. I don’t know why, but they just seemed a little less fruity to me.

    • Yes and yes! I have loved rice cakes since I was a child and my mom never understood why… Nowadays Ryan doesn’t either 😛

  10. Cracking up at “Jason Waterfall” That is hilarious! You’re totally not alone on thinking songs say one thing when they actually say another. The other day I was listening to Benny and the Jets and thought it said, “She’s got electric boobs,” but it really says, “electric boots!” Ooops!

  11. Wafflewich FTW is RIGHT! Girl, when I was swooning when I saw your Instagram post yesterday, and now I’m swooning again. Even though I’m a huge fan of the wafflewich, I’ve always piled mine with breakfasty foods–you know, like eggs and cheese, or peanut butter and banana. I’ll gave to try turkey and avocado sometime!

    Do I really have to pick between N’Sync and BSB? No? Good, because I think I liked 98 Degrees better. Nick Lachey was all mine…until he married Jessica Simpson. 😉

    Hope you’re having a wonderful week, Allison! <3

    • Mmm, all of those wafflewich combos sound delic to me! I totally forgot about 98 Degrees – I wasn’t a huge fan but loved watching Newlyweds on MTV [guilty pleasure] 😛

  12. All your meals look delicious, but your breakfast looks AMAZING and that wafflewich…..drooling right now!!! That’s the second time I have seen a sandwich on waffles in the last week! I think it’s a sign I need one! 😉

  13. I was always more of a boy band fan too – Backstreet Boys all the way! I’m pretty sure I will have their songs memorized for life.

    Also your wafflewich looks amazing – I gotta start buying frozen waffles again!

  14. Dude I ate the exact same sandwich today but just on normal bread. But your version using waffles looks FAR superior! What a great idea!

  15. I used to love the boy bands back in the day. Maybe I shouldn’t admit it but I still have quite a few of the songs on my ipod and some on one of my favorite workout playlists. Avocado tuna salad sounds really good! I’m not a huge fan of rice cakes but I think it would be great on an english muffin.

  16. Oh your wafflewich looks pretty ah-mazing… and so does your breakfast. I’m not sure I ever think to add bacon on the inside.. MUST DO ASAP!

    Tough call btw the two boy bands.. I think I’ll have to go with Backstreet Boys–and Brian =) =)

  17. OMG I loved TLC back in the day…especially No Scrubs! I hope that rumor that they’re coming back is true :)! Your wafflewich looks delicious- love that you don’t skimp on the avocado!

  18. I’ll have to admit I also said JASON WATERFALLS the entire time I was young. It was until I was like in high school that I realized it’s Chasing Waterfalls. what an idiot…

    I think I might have to try the waffewich. Looks good.

  19. Marianna says:

    You just forced me off my diet! lol…..Um-second question? Not even a hesitation with that one. Backstreet Boys all the way!! Better and bigger song catalog, and I can still see them live with new music! Backstreet’s songs have aged well right along with me–I can play their songs on my business playlist without cringing (note–mostly their nonsingles and nonreleased songs, along with I Want It That Way, Show Me The Meaning, All I Have To Give, As Long As You Love Me, Quit Playing Games, Shape of My Heart, I Still) Okay, really, the ONLY single I can’t play in my office is Backstreet’s Back because it is too silly….but all the rest are game! Phew…..AND Nick Carter is actually MORE gorgeous now than when they were at their peak!

    • That’s what I heard! They were talking about him on the morning radio show the other day and said that he’s cleaned up very well since his snafus a few years ago…

  20. Oh gosh, I ALWAYS thought it was Jason Waterfalls. Now when I hear it on back in the day buffet, I have a hard time correcting myself!!!

    tastiest thing ive had in a while was a steak salad from a nearby restaruant. Alberta beef is by far the BEST beef I have ever had.

  21. Mmmm, I literally drool every time I see a Starbucks picture! You think it wouldnt phase me anymore, but it does haha

  22. Oh goodness I’m going to have to make myself a waffleswich PRONTO!!! That looks too good. :)

  23. Mmm that waffle-wich looks so good! I’m a big fan of the breakfast version but I’ve never tried the lunch version before, great idea! And Jason Waterfalls, ha! Hilarious

  24. Ok, first of THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Because I ALWAYS thought that about TLC’s song!! I was so confused when I saw the actual lyrics for the first time! Lol Secondly, I think a reunion is a bit weird given that they mean to hologram in Left Eye…that’s just a little creepy! But I’d be all for an NSYNC reunion…Lance was always my mom’s favorite, but I always had my eyes on JT!

    I can’t believe I’ve never made a regular wafflewich! I’ve only ever done it as a breakfast sandwich! I’ve actually had a craving for some turkey lately so this may have to happen soon…if I can get my tummy to cooperate that is. Thanks to the good ol’ night shift, my zombie tummy has been all kinds of wonky lately! :-/

    And I totally grew up not knowing any other coffee existed besides Folgers…boy was my mind blown the first time I tried Starbucks! Lol

    • Haha I’m glad to hear that I wasn’t the only one who thought that about their lyrics… And Folgers definitely seems to have been the coffee of choice back then.

Whatcha Think?
