Gents,

Doing the ketogenic thing for a bit...so I decided to make this four egg omelette cooked in coconut oil and drizzled with ketchup!  

Inside is a sliced up avocado, two slices of American cheese, and a handful of mild cheddar!  I used up all my bacon last night!

Enjoy!

Yes I bet it was!

I allow myself 2 eggs per week and yesterday was egg day, with hash browns, rye toast, and bacon bits in the omelet. I find out how my blood work turned out tomorrow.

Fingers crossed for you my friend! The rye toast sounds really good right now...perhaps with some of that Irish butter I love so much!

Bird food?

Just kidding. Looks pretty good but I'd need a few more plates to satisfy my hunger after cycling 50 miles this morning.

I had 4 waffles smothered in maple syrup, 6 slices of bacon and a tall glass of sweet tea.

Waffles with maple syrup and butter sounds amazing right now!

One hopes that the shark of your avatar enjoyed it.  

Credit must be given to the kitchen staff at Tachibanaya in Atsumi Onsen in Yamagata Prefecture.  That was one course (of about a dozen courses) in the mid-level supper option at that excellent (and affordable) ryokan/hotel.

Amazing Japanese cuisine!

I’ve never had an omelette with avocado, but that looks solid. As long as I can sub ketchup for hot-sauce Wink

As is common with -omotenashi- (reference: this link), it was not specifically identified, but I think it was part of  the family Scombridae, a grouping that includes mackeral and bonito — Holy mackeral.

I put a full avocado in the omelette, and love it! I had never had it before either, until my wife and Instarted going to some restaurant for breakfast that did it when we lived in Colorado Springs.

I also like to put a little sour cream in there, but forgot to do it for this meal.

Somebody — I nominate you, Matt — should start a thread here in The Parlor about novel dishes encountered in restaurants that were immediately comprehensible and that we went on to make as staples in our own homes.  A quarter century ago in Barcelona, we were served a heaping plate of fresh spinach leaves that had been lightly sauteeed in olive oil with browned pine nuts; there was no mystery to the recipe, and we have made it at home maybe a thousand times since, and when we prepare it for guests, they always comment favorably.  Your avocado omelette strikes me as a similar taste juxtaposition that we look forward to trying at home.  

Our shocking discovery a few months ago in Honolulu (at Heavenly Island Lifestyle on Seaside Avenue in Waikiki) of Shrimp Ravioli with Cauliflower Sauce (really? you can make a sauce from cauliflower?) is proving more difficult to decipher, but we are determinedly trying to duplicate it.

That sounds like a really interesting dish!!!  I bet it was delicious, and good luck trying to recreate it!!


I will make a thread the next time I am inspired by a uniquely exquisite meal!  Though I am in full on baby mode for the next five weeks...paternity leave started today...the new baby boy arrived last night!

Well Matt, being a grandfather is a true gift! 

Enjoy the little guy and pick out a nice starter shaving set, (keep the REAL gear until it's proven he is deserving). Thumbup

Fellow Grandfather,

Gents,

Thanks for the congratulatory notes! Just to clarify, I am not a grandfather yet! This is my newest son in the picture that was born yesterday....early early morning!

I actually really like the idea of starting to put stuff away for the boys, and have four mint/collector grade Gillette aristocrats...one for each son when they do something monumental in their lives.

Have a great day!
