The Humble Omlette

There are times in life when you've either run out of inspiration for what to make for the evening meal or it's been a busy day and the event of cooking up a storm just isn't going to happen...that is when I find that the humble omlette makes it's way onto our dinner plates.

After one of those days recently, I made the omlettes and truly wondered why I don't make them more often. They are so quick, easy and delicious and you can us whatever you have on hand for the filling.

I'm glad I took the photos as I do think they warrant a blog post about them!

My method...I fried some bacon, mushrooms and tomato...whisked the eggs with parsley, s&p.
Cooked one side of the egg mixture in the frying pan, flipped it and then added the fried mix to one side of the omlette and flipped the other side over and slid it onto a plate.

The crotcheting bug has got me and as the cooler days are approaching I'm enjoying making a plain coloured scarfe. I haven't got too far to go, probably the next footy game I watch on tv will have it completed.

The latest addition to my Pinterest board is a lace patterend book cover.

You use the lace as the pattern and spray paint over it, to get the imprint onto the cover. It's a really nice effect. You can read the tutorial here.

PINTEREST...I have been on Pinterest for a couple of months now and have found it so useful. I have added so many ideas, recipes, decorating tips etc to my boards and I will always know where to find them. If you find a good idea while searching around the internet you simple just use the installed pin, to 'pin it' into one of your chosen board categories. You will then always have the photo in that board and the link to where you got the photo from. Great for tutorials and recipe ideas. If you would like to give Pinterest a try I am happy to send you an invite from my receive the invite instantly and can then start on your way. If you just go to Pinterest and request an invite it will take up to a week before you receive the response back from them.  

Here is a recipe I pinned onto my recipe board this week...Cinnamon glazed popcorn. I haven't made it yet, but plan to soon!  The recipe can be found here

 Hope you enjoy your weekend whatever it is that you are up to.

Dearest Annette,

Your Omelette is like from a Michelin star restaurant. You score high for that one! Indeed, we ask ourselves often for the most simple and fast suppers, why don't we make them more often? Instead of real eggs I do use egg beaters with 0% cholesterol. But that works the very same.
Your crocheting and other handwork looks fabulous.
Enjoy a great weekend and love to you,

I love a good ommlette but mine always seem to be too gooey in the middle. Your idea of cooking one side first sounds like a great idea so I'll give it a go.

Cheers - Joolz

I haven't made an omelette in ages, they make a nice, quick meal, but I need to buy a new non-stick pan, the current one is useless :(

The recipe for the popcorn sounds interesting, might have to give that as try soon.

Sorry it's been a while since I've left a comment. I hope you've finished your scarf by now it looks so warm and cheerful and that omlette is making me hungry.

Take care.
