I have been on a bit of an omelette kick lately. Notably on Sunday’s. Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week. It is my one full day off and also my boyfriend’s. I think of that song, “What I Love about Sunday’s.” I also think about Gabby Bernstein’s book encouraging us to promote what we love, rather than bash what we hate. So here is what I love about Sunday’s!!
- Church on Sunday’s. Dropping the dog’s off at Sharon’s and walking to church, sipping our coffee. Getting to meet and make new friends there. Church itself. Worship. And sermon. Taking time each week to slow down and reconnect and be present. I dig it. I need it. And then we have our walk home to discuss church.
- After church Zach’s beautiful mother Sharon either cooks us lunch or she treats us to lunch (I am truly blessed to have such rad, loving people in my life).Cue in my new obsession with selecting omelette’s. When the weather is nice we do yard work and garden.
- Hanging with Zach’s sister Mary and the pack of dogs (Jelly Bean, Kush, and Copper). Taking them for walks (sometimes in the rain) or snuggling up with them for a nice afternoon nap
- NAPS. Sunday’s naps are readily becoming our new thing and I love them, especially on rainy, stormy Spring days
- Movies. We love a movie. And we will rack our brains for childhood classics that we ‘have’ to find again. This last week, for instance, I spent Saturday with my best friend determined to find Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II Secret of the Ooze and the week before it was Ace Ventura
- Visiting friends. Chatting. Laughing (a lot). Deep conversations. One never really knows what we’ll talk about.
- Card games
- Fire pits with my parents.
Sometimes it is a mix of things. But they are laid back. Filled with rest and peace and just super chill, and family filled. I love them. They kind of melt my heart and make me yearn for more Sunday’s in my life.
So Sunday’s have made me hungry for omelette’s. Also Zach and I go grocery shopping on our pay days. We typically keep the groceries at his apartment and cook dinners there together. When you are a baker and your boyfriend is a chef, why not eat home-cooked meals together? But when we don’t eat together I am faced with my barren fridge. Creativity is a must when preparing meals from there. I have eggs that were given to me. Some bacon. Some Brussels sprouts. And a little Gouda cheese. And an onion. Hello, make an omelette. Plus I freaking love bacon and Brussels sprouts together. It was backed with flavor and oh so very good and filling. And definitely best because I made it myself, custom with some of my favorite ingredients. That’s why omelette’s rock, you can make them to fit your own taste buds and likes. Experiment with different cheeses. Different proteins. Different vegetables. Meat lover. Veggie lovers. Sky’s the limit!
Bacon and Brussels Sprout Omelette
- 3 eggs (mine were beautiful pasture-raised ones gifted to me)
- 2 slices of bacon
- 5 Brussels sprouts
- 2 oz. of smoked Gouda cheese
- 1/8 of an onion, thinly sliced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
Let’s Make it Happen: Crisp and fry bacon. Place on a plate and set aside. Keep some of the bacon fat to cook the omelette. Thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. Toss into the skillet with the garlic and onion. Saute a bit. Crack in the eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When the eggs are still slightly runny add the bacon. Sprinkle some Gouda over it. Fold them over. Let that cheese melt. Eat and enjoy! So easy.
