Happy Easter everyone! :)
This long weekend has been the most chocolate fuelled weekend I’ve had since Christmas – and there’s still one day left! I’ve promised myself to try and cut back on the chocolate intake but hey, you only celebrate Easter once a year, right!? :P Easter is a great time to enjoy good food and great company, and that’s exactly what I spent this weekend doing. Other than spending time with the family, I’ve been enjoying great home cooked Italian food, chocolate and I’ve even had some work published!
The weekend started with Good Friday which for me means no meat and for some reason it always proves really difficult for me to find something tasty and satisfying for lunch that’s meat-free. It’s not that I always eat meat – I can go days without it. It’s just that I would feel more guilty about eating meat on Good Friday, so I don’t want to slip up. :P I decided that I’d raid the kitchen for a few meat-free ingredients and go from there. That led to my Good Friday Lunch Omelette.
What you’ll need
1 tomato thinly sliced
grated cheese (I used parmesan which is my favourite but any kind will do)
What to do
- First, crack the eggs into a bowl and stir them with a fork. When the oiled pan is hot enough, poor the eggs in. Place the tomato slices evenly around the omelette and cover with cheese and pepper.
- Once the omelette is almost cooked right through, flip it over. I thought this would get really messy but everything stayed intact.
- Serve and enjoy! :)
* Add avocado and ham to give it a little extra flavour.
** For a thicker omelette use more eggs or butter.
After visiting family on both Saturday and Sunday and enjoying such great food, I’m thinking about spending the last day of the long weekend shopping or maybe catching a movie with my boyfriend. Whatever I do, I’ll be taking it easy! Oh, and I’ll be eating more chocolate. Can you blame me? ;)
