Vegetable Omelet

The makings of a veggie omelet made with one of our free range eggs.
There are frozen chopped bell peppers in the plastic bag behind the plate.
Beaten egg, chopped broccoli, spring onion, tomato, and garlic.

Fried potatoes on the left.
Sometimes I feel like standing over the skillet
and adding ingredients slowly and moving them around,
but not tonight.

So, I put some olive oil in the pan and let it warm up to simmer,
added the onions and garlic to cook a bit and
then added lemon juice and hot water.
Season to taste.

Then I put a handful of the frozen bell peppers in the middle
and dumped in everything else.
Put on a lid.
And let it cook while I read the news on the computer.

I checked the pan every 3 or 4 minutes
and added a bit more water if needed so the veggies
would steam and I didn't have to watch.

When the veggies were done
I poured the beaten egg over the top
and covered the pan till the egg on the bottom was set
then I flipped the omelet to finish cooking.

I usually put in some fresh chopped kale
but the kale looked really bad so I gave it to the chickens.
I cooked the potatoes earlier.

Since Morgan eats an egg a day
and so do I... the chickens really need to ramp up their egg laying.
I gave them watermelon with the kale today.

1 egg today

A suspect has been arrested,
who is suspected of starting the Robbers fire,
which cost California over 10 million dollars.
Very glad they caught him.
Makes you wonder how people can be so thoughtless.

That does look yummy. I"m glad they've caught the person responsible for the fire. My chickens aren't laying many eggs now either with the horrible heat. Take care!

Good afternoon~

OH, YUMMM! I love ANYTHING that I can make with our eggs. We have been having a slack in egg production as of late myself, however I am very thankful for the few we get every day. I am looking forward to our new flock laying soon. I guess I should finish that post! LOL
