17 November 2010 – Omelette with ham and emmentaler; brussels sprouts with ham; fresh tomatoes

Another winner from D. This year he studied how Julia Child made omelettes, and he really makes great ones now – fluffy, and cooked just right.

This omelette had eggs and milk, salt and pepper, as usual, plus some Saag’s Black Forest ham and Emmentaler cheese. Perfect! He toasted up the last of the loaf of bread to go with it. He also boiled or steamed some brussels sprouts and added some ham (or was it pancetta?) [turns out it was Boar’s Head bacon], and quartered three little early girl tomatoes he got at the Derby St market on Tuesday from Dirty Girl Farm. Everything was delicious.

Including the wine, an Entre-deux-mers from Chateau Bonnet that D got at the Bowl for about $7. It didn’t care for the Brussels sprouts much – gave it a bitter cast – but with the other food and by itself it was very good.
