After starting the morning with a wonderful Yoga class, the rest of the day has been mellow city. And since Ms. Foodie is flying solo tonight for din-din, I figured I’d continue the mellowness and flow with Simple Fare. And nothing is simpler than an omelette.
To give some richness to my omelette, I decided to whip the eggs with evaporated milk, and threw in some Basil for good measure.
I always keep White Shrimp in the freezer, because I’m a shrimp nut, and it’s easy protein and Omega 3s in any meal. After peeling the shrimp, coarsely chopping them, then sautéing the crustaceans in butter, garlic, salt and pepper, I poured on the egg mixture.
As the egg base solidified, I added a 3-Cheese Blend of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, and Mozzarella from Trader Joe’s, and for a bit of color, red and orange baby bell peppers!
It’s Jewish High Holiday season, so Challah is in large supply in every grocery store. I decided to break off some pieces of the loaf, along with a glass of Tolosa Chardonnay, to accompany my meal.
And the rest of the Challah loaf will be quite useful for breakfast again–stay tuned….
