Oh, wow, that picture of my favorite food is making me hungry!

It's up to the kitchen I go....

Randall, Actifry is the brand name of a counter top cooking device that uses small amounts of oil while stirring the food.

Sounds good, Patricia, but what's "actifry"? (and with a capital A?)

Bertold, I practiced making omelettes for about a year before they started looking like real restaurant omelettes instead of scrambled glop...but they always tasted good no matter what they looked like.

I spray the pan with whatever, THEN add a pat of butter, let it melt, and pour in the already beaten eggs (with a tbsp of water), turn down the heat, and le them get a little solid on the bottom.  Then carefully lift the edges and let the runny part flow under the already cooked part.

When they start to look not quite done, I put the filling on 1/2 of the eggs, carefully (again) fold the other side on top of the filling. Or roll it up if I felt like it, turn off the heat, and let it sit for a few seconds, and turn in out on a plate.

 like Mexican omelettes with salsa and Tillamook cheese,  or colby jack....or anything.  (An authentic  "Spanish" omelette is made with boiled sliced potatoes and cheese.  Borrriing.  Unless you sprinkle a lot of salt and pepper on the potatoes before adding them.

I also practiced flipping dried beans in a cold skillet until I stopped scattering them all over...for sauteing mushrooms or other loose veg.  Just for the hell of it.

I started watching cooking shows on TV when I was about 10 or 11, but by the time I was in the 7th grade, and "cooking" was a required course, I found it effing boring.  The class, I mean. No boys.  ; >)

Yes Patricia, I had a busy week and I shouldn't remember too much about the past. But I'm back on my feet again. Just started with coffee and fruit juice.

Well, my omelettes do a fabulous scrambled eggs imitation, and attempts at a stir fry look like someone already ate them once, but they taste ok.

I've got mixed feelings about presentation. With some things, I think it is important. A blueberry or cherry pie with a lattice crust should look nice before you cut into it. The vegetable stir fry I'll make this evening; who gives a damn. Though, I use red bell peppers, purple onions, green broccoli, and white button mushroom. Kind of a nice color mixture. However, when it gets to the point of having to wipe tiny droplets off the plate's rim as you sprinkle something parsley around it, not my cup of tea.

Hope you're feeling better, Chris.

Randall, I agree.  Taste is by far the most important to me.  

Presentation may be nice, and add a little to the taste experience, but I'm not willing to pay for it at a restaurant, or waste my time on it in the kitchen.

Sorry about your migraine day Chris.

Comment by Plinius on February 12, 2015 at 11:30am

Perhaps I'll try a dry cracker later. It's a migraine day.
