 Not sure what meal it will actually be. Let’s just call it nutrition break number one. Oh wait, let’s not.  It really was the one that broke my fast.😂

 Another attempt at a rolled omelet this time made with duck eggs. I am told by member @Hiroyuki (in the Tamago thread) that this is correctly called “ahiru no tamago”. 

 

I know it is a poor workman who blames his tools  but I do think that the rectangular omelet pan is not an appropriate vessel on an induction range.  I cannot seem to get it evenly heated and my next attempt at a rolled omelet will be done in a nonstick traditional skillet.

 

 I seem to have the rolling technique pretty much down pat although I do need to work more quickly.

 

 This omelet was quite disappointing being over cooked and somewhat dry.

Polenta with pork belly and egg.  It will keep me full for a long time.

Avocado Egg Sandwich from The Moosewood Restaurant Table cookbook.
IMG_8084.thumb.jpg.864936425424c2d067003d7359cc773e.jpg
There's a cucumber-yogurt-dill-scallion mixture on the bottom, avocado slices and egg.   The recipe calls for hard boiled egg slices but says that fried eggs will be less messy.  I went for some jammy yolks to stick everything together but with these ingredients, applied in this order, I'm afraid a certain mess factor is unavoidable 🙃!

 Shirred Shiitake Eggs from Eric Gower’s The Breakaway Cook.   Even a bit overcooked these elicited some accidental sounds of satisfaction from me. 

Click.

I guess by definition it’s not a French omelette if it has something inside.  I was shooting for a non browned rolled omelette

Miso soup with wakame and potatoes and a simple poached egg on rice seasoned with matcha salt. (The wakame was a left over so there’s a little more than is appropriate in this bowl of soup.)

I am ever so impressed that you dish out one Japanese inspired breakfast after the other. Truly admiring (and being a tiny bit envious on) your efforts!

 Then I spent many hours attempting to roll sushi. :S   It looks so easy when someone else does it.   I ate all my mistakes and these are only just two of them.

Just had a nice conversation with gardener guy we have deep ties with. From jalisco. Asked what most special dish and he said birria in a pit. One day I'll get down there ;)

Speaking of flat breads.  I made these last night.  Easy recipe.  The only trick is to not over cook the bread before you puff it.  Just a minute or two on each side.  They were very tender.  I think I would add salt to the dough recipe next time.  DH loved them with his chili.
