Our Special Saturday Brunch
My friends and family will tell you that George and I LOVE omelets. When we first met, we ate breakfast/brunch sometimes at the I-Hop. They have good omelets. One time, after a trip to the I-Hop, we just decided to try to make them ourselves. I'll admit that George is the maker and I'm the helper!!!! He has that special touch when it comes to flipping them, although now we use a special pan --where you flip the pan and not the omelet itself!! OH---how good these omelets are!!!!!
He makes my omelet as a veggie omelet (with a blend of peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc.). AND--He uses the 2% cheese on mine. His is more of a 'manly' omelet --with the veggies but also with some ham and sausage and regular cheese. To put it mildly, these omelets are FANTASTIC!!!!
Our routine is to have omelets on the deck (weather permitting of course) on Saturday mornings about 10 a.m. During the winter we eat them by the fireplace.We also like to have them on special holidays, etc. Omelets are a BIG tradition in our lives now. AND--neither of us ate omelets much before we met!!!! Needless to say, we don't go to the I-Hop anymore for our omelets. (I didn't take a picture of our omelets --so the picture above is from the internet. Ours are actually better than the one in the picture.) Wanna come and try them sometime for yourself????
After our 3-day rains this week (about 3 inches total we think), George took some pictures of some new roses in bloom and of our Impatiens. It seems as if everything in the yard said 'thanks' for all of the rain!!!!
The Impatiens under the Redbud tree were slow to grow this summer---but now are showing off for us!!!! They will bloom until the first frost.
Have a wonderful Saturday!!!
