By this point I think it’s clear that I love eggs and everything breakfast inspired. So, here are two tips to help you make an omelet that may spark some love of your own!
Here are the ingredients:
- 2 eggs beaten with 1 Tbs water and 1 tsp Penzey’s Sunny Paris Seasoning
- 4 Asparagus stalks sliced cross-wise
- 3 Aidells Chicken & Apple Mini Sausage, cut into rounds
- 1 Slice Deli Swiss
- 1 cup baby arugula
The first big tip is to saute any appropriate ingredient not only to get a good looking brown but also to help heat your omelet from the inside. After the sausage is warm and asparagus is starting to soften set to the side and continue to use this one pan.
The next tip is to not worry so much about keeping your ingredients to half the pan in preparation for flipping your omelet. After the eggs have just started to set in the pan I layered in the sauteed sausage and asparagus followed by the slice of Swiss and topped with arugula. Once it comes time to flip, push your omelet into the rounded edge of your pan with a large spatula. As you flip allow all your ingredients inside to shift and use that spatula to press the whole thing down into a perfect omelet crescent!
I know that’s not the clearest explanation but I swear, use that rounded edge and you’ll get a perfect omelet every time!
Last night I finally finished the 8 throw pillow covers that comprise my first ever Etsy collection! After I get the shipping costs figured out I’ll launch the store, hopefully later this week!
When I saw the pile of 5 covers above, basking in the warm sunset light, I couldn’t help but take a picture. Unfortuantely the same light posed quite a challenge for the attempted product shoot!
Similar to my reinterpreted ham and swiss wrap, this version with honey mustard, deli sliced chicken, swiss and spinach definitely pleased. With a side of carrot chips and hummus in the background my lunch was made!
As I have mentioned before, my new/current apartment has great closets (for NYC): I have a clothes closet by my bathroom as well as a coat closet by the front door opposite a massive 3 door closet that is divided into 1 section of shelves and 2 sections of hanging. Shown below, those two hanging sections are divided into “utility” and off season & special occasion clothes. Yes, I am very spoiled!
Of course closet space is only as good as the storage within it and although my utility closet has always been functional, I’ve known that I can do better.
One day I received yet another new catalogue in the mail – almost in-flight shopping in style Improvements featured a rolling pantry rack on the front cover followed by many pages of fanny-pack replacements. On sale and the perfect size for my utility closet I knew I had finally found the upgrade my storage situation needed!
My trick to make sure the shelves are placed at useful heights is to place common objects on the shelf you think it will live on before determining the height of the shelf above. This quick trick can save you lots of frustration when your detergent is just too tall!
Although the cart came with the option of 6 shelves I decided that I prefer 5 set at taller heights, so the 6th metal shelf went out with the recycling. Never be afraid to adapt things this way. There is no reason to live with with the way the product was pictured if it isn’t useful to you!
In the end the new rack was a huge upgrade for my closet! As you can see I am now storing much more on the new rack then I did on the old shelves. The increased space allowed me to consolidate all of the miscellaneous storage from around the apartment – a very satisfying improvement!
