how to make a messy omelette look good.


.   .   .  *  .   .   .


if this morning was any indication of a clumsy day to come, i'm glad i made provision for making a mess look better. ever have those mornings?

i'm enjoying omelettes lately. one egg .. jumbo. a bit of butter, cheese choice, seasonings. this morning i decided to start with gorgeous little tomatoes. into a saute pan i drizzled a bit of olive oil then seasonings: simple stuff like fresh cracked pepper, sea salt, oregano, parsley. putting the cover on the pan which was on a medium high flame, the tomatoes were pan roasted in quick time. once done i transferred them to a cute little bowl and set to work on my omelette. 

one egg, a tich of heavy cream, a tich of water. whisk with a fork. then into the pan with a small dab of melted butter. it was during the cooking process that the omelette rebelled, becoming rude and broken. i added a bit of parmesan and a small bit of whole milk ricotta then turned one side over the other, cracks and all. turned off the heat and put the lid on and waited one minute. during that minute i brought out a favorite vintage plate and slid the omelette onto its surface, then added the roasted tomatoes. a fork did well to shovel this into my mouth. this i ate, and slurped a side of coffee...strong. this dish was **so** good. really and truly. the tomatoes redeemed the dish.

hoping i don't trip and fall on my face during my walk with the pooch today. if this morning is any indication... maybe we'll stay home and watch Persuasion instead. might be safer.

what's on your plate?

  6. Dont you just love when a simple mess on a plate can entice so much desire in enjoying what's in front of you. Your omelet looks like one of those meals, maybe the tomatoes dressed it up?

    You come up with some of the most enteresting posts Sherry, I have to agree with VERA here, Ristic is a perfect word for this plate of food. A metaphor for this meal is.....no matter how broken something appears to be a mended can take place with a bit of trust, faith and creative work.

    Blessing to what was broken that became whole in the eyes of importance and the beauty in taste buds.
