It’s official. I do not know how to make an omelet.
Well, half way at least. I can make them taste good, but the actual cooking process, I literally am omelet dumb.

In cooking my breakfast this morning I seriously stood over the skillet thinking to myself “do i flip the whole thing like a pancake?” “do i fold it over now?”. This resulted in an almost burned omelet, but I saved it! I also think I made the wrong choice. I did not flip. I folded. Which led to an uncooked middle. Don’t worry, I just squished it all out to get cooked. Then covered the top in salsa so you wouldn’t see my almost burnt mess!
Since I was never (still really am not) a huge egg person, I make my omelet’s pretty simple, because honestly I don’t know the rules. So do you add ingredients to the egg mix and then pour? Add everything to the skillet and then pour the eggs on top? I’ve seen recipes to add a cheese spread in the middle, when do I do this? I just don’t know. But this morning, I added a lovely addition that really took my omelet up a notch. (I just added it to the egg mixture…I didn’t know)
This seriously added such a nice spiciness to the omelet and I am out of jalapenos’ or fresh would have went in (what can I said I like it spicy, always)
Remember my buffalo chicken salad? That I had like 3 times in a week once. I just can’t help it. My dad taught me to eat jalapenos’ out of the jar!
Anywho, back to the omelet.
So even though I don’t have the cooking method down, I do a pretty good job at hiding the eggy taste I really don’t like because I actually enjoy these breakfasts. I’m just really trying to find different ways to get protein into my breakfasts. I hate to say this, because as much as I love my oatmeal, adding protein powder is not keeping me full. Even though you would think all that fiber carby goodness would, right now it is just not what my body is needing.
Although another protein filled meal that has been super tasty lately are my tofu scrambles. Wow two things I really did not expect to really enjoy. Tofu and Eggs.

`Ok, so we all know my love for Trader Joe’s and their products. That store is seriously dangerous. Matt and I went once for literally 3 items and walked out with a cart full. Once I see him adding things, I just can’t help myself. So I decided to try some new veggie burgers. We typically do the standard Vegan Boca Burgers, if we don’t make them ourselves. (By the way we had homemade veggie burgers and grilled corn on the cob the other night and I am kicking myself for not taking pictures, because they were so delicious. Wish I remember what all I put in them because it was seriously recipe worthy) But I wanted to try a new pre-made version for quick lunches.
Boca, I’m sorry, I don’t know that I can go back to you.
The brand is Dr. Praeger’s. I think I’ve seen people eat some of these other products, but when I was looking at the veggie burgers these just stood out to me for some reason. I wonder if Trader Joe’s makes their own. I’ll have to check, but I had really been wanting a more veggie burger than soy burger. I really try to not eat too many processed soy products, but sometimes when I need a quick easy lunch they work.
I was actually surprised at how…flavorful the patty was. But then again, I am use to bland Boca patties. So this lunch was a very nice surprise.
Like I could have oven roasted broccoli without it. Pssh. But sad times followed.
Overall I’m glad I decided to try a new brand. I still think home made is the best way to go, but like I said, when you need a quick lunch they work!
