Hi there. Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be awesome. I should know, it was the first new year’s eve in ages where I haven’t been working or a little bit emo.
I’m dead excited for this year and that’s due to the fact that however it turns out, the plan is to have learn a lot. Some of that may be academic, other things may just be life skillz (yes, with a ‘z’).
So I think this year’s general blogging motif will be sharing with you what I’ve learnt. The first one is a corker.
If 2012 is year of learning then amongst other things, 2011 was the year of learning to love eggs. Yep. Learning to love eating eggs. I had spent the previous 26 years positively phobic of poached eggs, boiled eggs, omelettes and quiche. A weekend in France fixed that because let’s face it: everything tastes better in France.
So today, New Year’s Day I cooked my very first omelette:
And as far as omelette cookery is considered, it was easier than expected. And more delicious than expected.
I used the taste.com.au recipe for Bacon and Cheese Omelettes and added a generous handful to spinach because leafy greens are good for you.
Omelettes where have you been all my life?
