A New year. I am happy for that. A New Year brings new possibilities and expectations.
We all try to start off being better & healthier. I want to make better choices for myself this year. On all levels. With that said, now it is up to me to execute it. Oh boy… I better stick to it all this year.
We decided to just take it easy on new years eve. A pajama party of sorts. A tradition that my husband grew up with, is to hold rice and some money in your hand when the clock strikes midnight. I wanted to “up the odds” so I was holding a couple of extra bills and as much rice as my hand could hold. Now we just have to wait and see.
The new year is showing its nice side. The sun is shining and it is nice and fresh outside. The morning has been slow and gentle. How could you start the new year better than this?
We had the usual lobster meal on for new years, but this time we didn’t even finish it all. That is unusual. That gave me an opportunity to make a nice individual Lobster Omelette with some vegetables for breakfast. Delicious and the first healthy meal of the year.
Individual Omelette’s with left over Lobster.
4 large eggs.
4 tbsp. milk.
6 mini peppers or 2 x 1/2 bell peppers, different colors. Finely cut.
6 asparagus. Finely cut.
1/4 – 1/2 cup left over Lobster or any other seafood. Cut in semi big pieces.
1 tbsp. shredded basil leaves or any other fresh herbs.
Salt & pepper to taste.
1 Lemon or lime.
Hot 450 F/ 225 C oven.
Whisk the eggs well, together with the milk, salt & pepper.
Heat up mini frying pans or if you only have a regular sized pans, do one big omelette.
Pour in the egg/milk mixture. Fry for a couple of minutes, scraping the edges into the center so that it cooks evenly.
Fry the finely chopped vegetables. Turn off the heat. Let sit in the pan.
Put the mini omelettes into the oven. Add the seafood into a oven-proof bowl and warm slightly.
Finish off the omelets and make them “dry” on the top. It will only take a couple of minutes.
Take them out, you will see that they have puffed up a little bit, just like a soufflé.
Add the vegetables and the seafood on top. Shred over the basil or fresh herbs.
Squeeze a few drops of lemon or lime over the omelette.
Serve with some fresh fruit.
Enjoy the New Year!!!
