Wow ~ the prices on meat have just sky rocketed! I could live on fish,veggies and
berries very happily, but David is a beef eating Texan. David always says that if he
eats a Burger King Whopper that he is getting all four food groups ~
meat, dairy (cheese), veggie (lettuce and tomato) and grains (the bun). I roll my
eyes and serve him veggies anyway. And ... I also try to go meatless now
and again. I have nothing against meat, but I am an all things in moderation
kind of girl. Well, at least I try to be.
So we have meatless meals. On the Menu Monday is a baked California Omelet, from
a very torn and tattered Betty Crocker's Cooking For Two cookbook. I of course
have tweaked it a bit, because y'all know I just have to tweak.
"Do you want toast with dinner David?" Of course he does.
We will be eating in front of the TV again because there is some sort of
sports show on. I am pretty sure it's Monday Night Football, or golf. That's what I
get for marrying a jock.
"Do you want a glass of wine with dinner David?" Of course he does not.
But I will have one!
Here is the recipe. I told you that it is an oldie. Please ignore the
stains, etc. I substitute chopped roasted red pepper for the tomato because
David is not too crazy about tomato. I also substitute grated Asiago for the
shredded Cheddar because I just love Asiago cheese. Tonight I served this
with pureed jewel yams and steamed spinach with a touch of balsamic vinegar.
I also served some melon balls on the side because if I don't serve fruit
from time to time, David will never eat any on his own. Remember the
story I told you about the Whopper.

Don't you my little sweet pea?
