(More Than) More Than Waffles

On Friday, "The Ukrainian" told me to come over to his area a little early the next morning because he said he was conjuring up some plans. So after the work and gym on Friday, I quickly did laundry and other stuff piling up in order to go to bed, run the next morning, eat breakfast with the parents, watch a World Cup game, take a shower, and make that 35-mile drive.

We went to More Than Waffles in Encino, CA. Here are some pics from my second breakfast:

Above: The front. There were tons of people waiting, but the wait was only 15-20 minutes. The best part about this place was its FAST and friendly service!

Above: Here's what I ordered -- a Mediterranean omelet: 3 eggs, feta and mozzarella with onion and tomato. I don't like bell peppers of any kind, so tomato in an omelet is the next best thing. For those of you who haven't read my blog in a while, I've been eating cheese again.

Above: "The Ukrainian"'s lox benedict. Yeah, I've never seen one before, either!

Above: I couldn't go to a place like this without getting a waffle! This came with the omelet. They said the waffle was 140 calories, but I was overstuffed after 70 of those calories... "The Ukrainian" had a bacon/cheddar waffle.

After eating more than I should have, we went to the Getty Center in Los Angeles.

We walked around the museum so much, that my legs were bone tired! Plus, we ended up walking back down to the parking (at least downhill this time). I guess it was worth it, as there was a Leonardo da Vinci (one of my favorite people ever) exhibit, and it was a nice day weather-wise. Plus, I got to walk my second breakfast off!


On another note, today is Father's Day. There is something great to be said for all the dads in the world who stick around for their children, including my own Daddy... so Happy Father's Day to all you dads and would-be dads!
