Monday again, why do they have to be so often 😏

Wedges for the Men, Salad for me 😊

Tonight I am making something simple, but it can be messed up so easily, it should be light and fluffy, it’s not an Pancake – the humble Cheese omelette – it is one of my go to meals for something cheap, tasty and filling

I am using 3 Aldi free range eggs each, (it is our main meal of the day) they will be whisked up with a little double cream, salt and pepper

Into a medium frying pan I gently heat a little Veg oil, then pour the egg mix in

leave for a few seconds for the base to start to set

then with a silicone spatula, start to push the edges to the middle, leave for a few seconds more, repeat

the idea is to get light folds of egg, so the end result is light and fluffy, not a pancake.

As the top layer begins to firm, add a handful of grated cheddar – for me it has to be the strong kind, the type that makes your mouth pucker 😜 The Aldi extra strong is just right πŸ‘

Gently shake the pan, to ensure the base is loose, encourage any sticky bits with the spatula

then gently slide into your serving plate, folding in half has you go

add a huge salad and a celebratory ‘Mondays over’ glass of wine and enjoy one lifes simple pleasures x

I added some Potato wedges to the men’s plates

I think I could quite happily live off eggs for a week πŸ˜‰

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...

  1. I thought it might be a bit too simple, but Youngest told me he can’t make them, so I guessed there must be others πŸ˜‰ I adore Mushroom in my Omelettes, that is a Sunday brunch speciality a la Maison 🀣🀣
