Breakfast in Bed

in All Posts

I’m stuck under the covers, and I can’t untangle myself!  Help!


Breakfast in bed has that effect.


I did briefly rise to make the Husband and I breakfast – but two hours later, we’re still laying around, making ‘sandwiches’ with the dogs (we are the bread and they are the meat and cheese).  A wonderfully lazy Sunday, if you ask me.


Oh my, my, my – the Grilled Banana Sandwich is back.  SO good.  Make this now!


And top it with sunflower seeds for a fun salty and sweet mix.


If, at some point, I manage to pull myself out of bed, I plan to go for a short run before settling down for some writing.  I’m at the point where I can’t take many days off until September or my third book will NEVER be finished (it’s a healthy living guide).  I really enjoy writing it; it’s just very research and interview-intensive. 


One day, one page at a time!


But first, I’m going to finish this coffee.  Mmm.

    I love your mugs!

    Good luck going for a run and getting some writing done! You can do it! 🙂

    Sounds like a fun, relaxing morning. I love those. And I’m totally excited for your books!

    I wasn’t going to read any blogs this morning. I’m very conflicted with it right now. But I am glad I came here. I’ve been “beating myself” up all morning for sleeping in when it’s beautiful out and not getting any work or cleaning done properly when I have so much to do.

    So – thanks I guess – and happy writing. It sounds intense to me! But at least it’s for a great purpose and goal. I’m just floundering 😉

    Sometimes we all need a lazy Sunday morning in bed! It’s good for the soul 🙂

    Good luck with your writing.

  • Hayley @ Oat Couture July 3, 2011, 12:35 pm

    Lazy sunday mornings are sometimes an absolute necessity! So enjoy it! 🙂 Good luck with the writing! Sending you lots of inspiration and good vibes! 🙂

    When you get to the point where you’re making “dog sandwiches” you know you need kids 😉 I myself recently dedicated a Facebook status to teaching my puppy to shake, so I’m there too!

    • CaitlinHTP July 4, 2011, 12:04 pm

      Hah tell it to the husband 🙂

  • kristi (sweet cheeks) July 3, 2011, 1:11 pm

    i still have yet to make this. It looks absolutely incredible!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 3, 2011, 1:15 pm

    I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed either! Enjoy your relaxing time 🙂

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) July 3, 2011, 1:28 pm

    I still need to try this banana sandwich… =)

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 3, 2011, 1:33 pm

    We had a super lazy morning today too! We got up at 8am, had breakfast, showered, but then went back to bed at 9:30am — and just got up. It is 12:30 🙂

  • Holley @ Lunges and Lashes July 3, 2011, 1:34 pm

    holy heck, that sandwich looks divine! you are making me so hungry right now!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 3, 2011, 1:41 pm

    I love b-fast in bed!!

  • Stephanie July 3, 2011, 1:42 pm

    Awwww…there’s nothing better than a puppy sandwich on a lazy Sunday afternoon. My dog’s not allowed on the bed, so we do a standing sandwich, with him grunting happily between our legs. Dogs are so funny.

  • The Healthy Engineer July 3, 2011, 1:44 pm

    Have you tried bannana fritters?? They are the best!

  • Aja July 3, 2011, 1:53 pm

    Sundays are perfect days for lazy mornings.

  • Laura @ Cookies vs. Carrots July 3, 2011, 2:09 pm

    That sandwich looks delicious, and the long weekend is the perfect time to stay in bed all day!

  • Courtney @ girl in the pink July 3, 2011, 2:14 pm

    Love the banana sandwich idea. I’ve been doing something similar, but adding peanut butter! Yuummm

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) July 3, 2011, 2:20 pm

    I love lazy Sundays! Of course, I haven’t had one in awhile, but they are fantastic! 😀

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 3, 2011, 2:53 pm

    Lucky ducky! I’d be fine being tangled in the sheets if it meant breakfast in bed!

  • Molly @ RDexposed July 3, 2011, 3:58 pm

    I think I’d make this for a lunch since I can’t tear myself away from my morning oats regimen.

  • Khushboo July 3, 2011, 4:38 pm

    Im weird but I cannot enjoy breakfast in bed…I hate eating without brushing my teeth and then once I’m up, i can’t get into bed! Delicious eats!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 3, 2011, 4:42 pm

    Your lazy Sunday sounds perfect! Enjoy it. 😀

  • Bee Goes Bananas July 3, 2011, 9:18 pm

    So jealous! Can your husband convince my fiance to serve me breakfast in bed?

    • CaitlinHTP July 4, 2011, 12:05 pm

      Hahah send me his email address 🙂

  • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs July 4, 2011, 2:23 am

    Sounds like a wonderful morning – and it really is exciting to follow your book progress, good luck with motivation!! I can’t wait to read the finished product 🙂

  • Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] July 4, 2011, 11:25 am
