This meal is inspired by my brother in law. We went to visit them in Chi-town this past Labor Day weekend. He cooked up a storm! It was such a joy to watch him take on the same role as his dad! Host and chef! Also, want to say a quick congrats to my BIL for running the Chicago marathon and doing so in honor and memory of your dad!
Read about my horrifying experience this morning and to see how I did on my monthly grocery budget!
2 medium or 1 large zucchini ($1.01)
1/2 onion ($.20)
10 eggs ($1.59)
1/4 cup milk ($.05)
1/2 cup cheese ($.42)
2-3 T oil ($.05)
1 pear and 1 orange (or other favorite fall fruit!) ($1.29)
Disclaimer: If Hubs had made this meal, the omelets would have come out perfectly! He is much more patient than I have been or ever will be! My version turned a little scrambly!
1. Thinly slice or dice zucchini. Finely chop onion.
2. Whisk eggs and milk with a little salt and papper.
3. Heat skillet on high. Add 1-2 T oil. Add egg mixture and let cook a little. Add zucchini, onion and cheese. Once eggs have cooked mostly through. Flip the omelet over and cook another 1-2 minutes. Fold and serve with sliced fresh fruit.
Evidence that I TRIED to make omelets in the cute little omelet skillet!
PLEASE If anyone has any tips on omelet making, do let us all know!
