It’s been a long and exhausting week. I had some eggs and some kick ass fixings (mushrooms, green onions, avocado, crab and gruyere cheese) and the bright idea to make an omelet. Mistake #1, why am I thinking? Mistake #2 putting my Pampered Chef cheese grater thingy together left-handed. That made grating the cheese interesting being I’m right-handed! WTF!? Mistake #3, thinking I’m capable of making an omelet when I still haven’t really figured out how to make scrambled eggs. Yes, you read that right. I can make a variety of dishes, desserts and baked goods, but I can’t for the life of me scramble a damn egg. Sigh….
I’m not one of those people who only shares the positives in life. You know the ones. The ones that have that annoyingly cheery voice, fake smile and everything is always so “grrrrreat!!” (said in a high-pitched annoying tone). The people who brush their mistakes under the rug hoping no one saw and would fight you tooth and nail to deny, deny, deny if caught. Yeah, that’s not me. I’m real. My smile is genuine and can’t be forced if I’m not feeling it. I make mistakes and I’d like to think I learn from them (eggs being an exception). I DO however try to find the good in every situation. Some times are easier than others. Luckily being the end of a very long week, this was one of the easy ones. 🙂
The moment the omelet went sideways, I immediately went to plan B – a “scramble” it will be. Sure, it didn’t look scrambled and it certainly didn’t look all that appetizing, but I’m here to tell you that looks can be deceiving!! “Allison’s Omelet Fail” as this meal will be affectionately known as from this point forward, was delicious and full of flavor. So it wasn’t what I planned and hoped for and it certainly wasn’t pretty. But how often can any of us say that things go the way we wanted them to? Not everything has to be pretty. It just has to be real. And if it’s real good, then it’s a WIN! 🙂
Anyone want to give me omelet/scrambled egg lessons!? 😉
