How to Make a Basic Omelet

PC - Basic Omelet

There’s nothing better than farm fresh eggs, straight from the hen, for breakfast!

So, what better way to eat those eggs, than by enjoying your basic omelet?!?

And, if you want, you can change it up by adding a few of your favorite meats and veggies! I like to add some spinach, feta cheese and tomatoes!

For the perfect, basic omelet, all you need are butter, eggs, salt and pepper, a pan (I prefer a good non-stick such as this one). That’s it! So let’s get started!

Basic Omelet

Here’s what you need:

  •  2 eggs
  • 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Add these ingredients to make the Spinach and Feta Omelet

  • 1/2 cup fresh, chopped spinach leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped plum tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. crumbled Feta cheese

Now, let’s put it all together:

  • Whisk together, the eggs, salt and pepper.
  • Melt the butter in the pan. Swirl the butter around in the pan to coat the bottom and sides.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Let it sit for a minute undisturbed, allowing it to begin to set.
  • With a rubber scraper, gently push one edge of the egg into the center of the pan, tilting slightly, allowing the still liquid egg to flow underneath. Repeat with the other edges until there is no liquid left. It it begins to stick, simply loosen the bottom with a spatula.
  • If you’re making the Spinach and Feta Omelet, here’s where you’ll want to add the spinach, tomato and cheese to one half of the egg.
  • Using a spatula or rubber scraper, fold the egg onto itself and cook for 1 minute longer.
  • Finish, by sliding the omelet onto a plate and enjoy!

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels!

The Great Adventure Homestead… Beginning Again!

cropped-20190113_140826.jpg

I am a homesteader! However, I am not your traditional homesteader!

We don’t have chickens, goats, cows or pigs!

We don’t even have our own land to grow vegetables!

Nope!

In truth, mom and I have been traveling in our RV for just about 4 years!

I have been working at different campgrounds in the office, checking in guests, taking reservations, and answering phones, among other things!

When allowed, we plant a garden in containers…

Food - Garden - Container (7)

We buy fresh, organic foods from local farmers..

and we have learned how to preserve our foods through dehydrating and canning…

But somewhere along the line, we got off track!

We started eating out more often, because it seemed to fit my hectic schedule! Burger joints became the norm and my health took a nosedive!

My most recent ‘job’ came to an end because the campground closed for the season, so now I am ‘officially unemployed.’ Well, in the traditional sense anyhow…

I am still working! I’m just self-employed!

I have my freeze-dried food business, which you can find HERE… as well as my photography! Yes, I found a company that is willing to pay me to do something I enjoy! How cool is that?!?

Barns - Red Barn

Since I am working for myself, I can work the hours I want, so I should be able to find the time to focus more on the homesteading side of things… with permission, I will once again grow a garden… start up preserving our foods, and focus on a more organic, homesteading lifestyle!

Therefore, moving forward, this homestead of ours has a renewed purpose, even if not in the traditional sense!

Here’s to new beginnings!

Peace, Love and Safe Travels!
