chanterelle mushroom omelet

2 slices of buttered wheat toast

1 glass of water

One of the first cooking shows that left a lasting impression on me as a kid was the omelet episode of The French Chef with Julia Child.

I could never get Julia’s omelet technique down. She makes it look so easy, setting up several pans and using one arm and a quick flick of the wrist to make an oblong omelet in 20 seconds. I’ve made many accidental scrambled eggs instead despite many, many attempts at the pan shake. I eventually settled on a more traditional method, and Alton Brown’s technique on Good Eats is much more manageable. I’ve since made hundreds of omelets with this method and it’s my quick go-to meal. Take a look at my picture above. That is one pretty-looking omelet. Normally, I’d run a recipe, but you can make do with either The French Chef or Good Eats videos.

Saturday was the return of Daylight Savings Time. Subway also priced every regular foot-long sub at $5. This is truly a glorious time we’re living in.
