Breaking a Few Eggs

IMG_20180319_142842990I used to love making omelettes. Then I fell out of love with the idea.  Maybe I read something somewhere that said I shouldn’t eat eggs. Maybe I got lazy.  Maybe I fell in love with another food.

Today, for the first time in a long time, I made an omelette. Why am I sharing it with you?  It isn’t like my omelette turned out fantastically.  I should have used another egg and a better pan…and I should have used the much sweeter red pepper rather than the green one.

I guess I could wax lyrical about how the process is more important than the result. I could explain, quite truthfully, that despite the look of it, it tasted quite good.  However, in an effort not to lie to you, since I have been having lots of technical problems with the cable company, I suspect that my frustration will not allow anything else to be Today’s Perfect Moment.

I haven’t done a lot of cooking lately. Today affirms that it should be a more routine part of my life.  I certainly like eating, so cooking and baking should be the same.

If you wondering about my food photography skills, let me just say, there are some great food photographers out there. I am not one of them.  In my defence, I just don’t want to make you hungry.

Just in case you were wondering, that’s raspberry jam.

    It’s not bad, man… the photography – and thankfully, the burgers are going on the grill in 3… 2… 1…

    This looks yummy. I love eggs! There are so many different ways to eat them too. 😛 I actually haven’t had an omelette in a while though.

  4. First, don’t listen to the BS about “eggs being bad,” “high cholesterol” and the rest. That’s been debunked and disproven (by thinking people). Eggs are nature’s perfect food and protein. Read up, you’ll be cracking more eggs and cooking omelettes (messy or otherwise) in no time!
    I ADORE eggs. My comfort food: raw egg in Japanese rice. With soba & udon are terrific too … but that Japanese rice, it’s foundational, man!
