So if life gives you eggs, make omelettes.
I think, about a week ago, I turned to my new friend Jamie on YouTube to learn how to make those “divine” and “silky” egg-based classic of a dish. Yes, words in quote marks were my friend Jamie’s.
The experiment turned out well! I did as I was instructed. Well, except for the butter part — I only had margarine — but the omelette turned out OK — and silky and divine.
The fun was mostly in the shaking of the pan and seeing the yellow flattened lump moving loosely because of the laws of physics. And then the tasting.
A few days later, I tried adding ground beef, tomatoes, and onions to the concoction. And this time, with some burning. It turned out OK, too.
But the thing had too much oil. But it was olive oil — my friend’s favorite — so it’s OK.
Oh yes, pretending to be a chef can be an effective stress reliever.
