I was determined that yesterday was going to be a good day whether it liked it or not after the previous day’s antics. And every good day starts off with a good breakfast, right? So I spent a little more time and mess to create a hearty one to start off this WIAW.
I remember thinking omelets were so intimidating, but they really aren’t! Here’s a quick version of how I make an easy omelet…
1. In a Tbsp of butter (love me some Kerrygold!), sauté diced veggies of choice (I used peppers, onions and tomatoes) over medium heat. Meanwhile crack eggs (I used 3) into a bowl and mix well.
2. Once veggies are soft, pour in egg mixture. Allow the bottom to set, them use a spatula to lift the edges of the egg and tilt the pan so they still-liquid egg can flow underneath it to cook and set, too.
3. Pour about 2 Tbsp of water around the edges of the omelet and cover immediately. Let it sit like this for 2-3 minutes until the egg is cooked on top.
4. Add cheese of choice (I used Cabot cheddar, but also love feta or goat cheese) to half the omelet, then flip the un-cheesed side over to cover the cheese and turn off the stove.
5. Slide onto a plate and enjoy!
I shared the omelet with Hailey and the day began! Morning was spent at play group.
I really love spending time with these ladies and our now ELEVEN kids between us. There is always a fun topic of conversation and kids saying cute things.
I grabbed lunch once we were home and both girls were asleep. In my baby freezer meal prep, I included these black bean burgers. I made them, formed them, then froze them layered between sheets of parchment paper. I defrosted them Sunday and baked them all Monday and have been enjoying them for lunch all week, topped with mustard and sriracha.
David surprised me by coming home early. I was psyched to fit it a wog with Kaitlyn and quickly changed clothes… only to realize I had left the stroller at play group. Mark that down as day 2 of wearing workout clothes without purpose.
Still, my arms are feeling it this morning thanks to swinging this one around all afternoon.
I started dinner on the early side so I could try a new recipe. I enjoyed learning a new technique of braising and smashing fresh tomatoes to make a broth that included white wine, garlic and shallots.
However, the recipe itself only turned out so-so.
Side note: that’s actually Steelhead trout, not salmon. It was hard to taste the difference in the tomato sauce!
Then this happened:
I’m not usually big on desserts, but you can’t say no to this ice cream and a still-warm chocolate chip cookie!
Omelets… intimidating or not?
What is your favorite brand of ice cream?
