Do you remember a few posts ago, I mentioned that I have an opportunity and a desire to try out new foods? That was, and is, a totally true statement. Although some people snickered at this, because I am by no means, a cook...or a connoisseur of exotic foods. I am barely even a baker.
I have a kitchen that a number of people would love to have as their own...it has space, gadgets, utensils, a walk-in pantry, and lots of light. It also has three junk drawers, and a whole cupboard devoted to an extra large can of coffee.
Today, Jason returned to work, so I have been left to fend for myself for food. I have slept most of the day away, and managed to survive solely on a bowl of Mini Wheats cereal (with blueberries on top), and a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich following my three hour nap. I had plans for today, which included picking up a roasted chicken at the grocery store, but I have been under the weather, and laid on the couch instead.
While sprawled on the couch, I read the most recent issue of Chatelaine magazine, and for once, even read the food pages. After first flipping to the photos of the newest Trudeau, I casually stumbled back to the beginning of the magazine...until I was captivated by a picture of an omelet!
***hold on to your feathers ladyfingers, this is about to embarrass me more than it embarrasses you***
I have never cooked an omelet before. I have eaten omelets. I have watched ladyfingers prepare omelets for Jason. I have heard the "milk or water" debate. However, they simply have never interested me until now! An omelet for dinner is much better than having cereal for the second dinner in a row (and for the second time today)!
So what, after all this time, turned me on to omelets? The golden ingredient (which I had in my pantry) was black olives! I didn't even hesitate...I read the page on how to cook the omelet, and got myself off the couch, and heated up the pan! Eggs, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onion, and black olives. In my opinion, it looked like, and tasted like the best omelet ever!
I am so proud of myself!
