StrangeAmy got me into the Great Taste Of The Midwest (IE Beerfest, IE 100's of different beers, all you can drink for thirty bucks) on Saturday and needless to say I had a fork in me by 10pm. My favorite was perhaps the Bermuda Triangle Belgian Triple from the Flat Earth brewery, which had 3 different plants from said Triangle. There was a Mr. Spock's Eisbock from some place called Fitgers Brewhouse that was good but I doubt will make me live long and prosper. It stung that my favorite beers there were not brewed in WI. Anyways I'm very appreciative to those who assisted me in consuming very good beer and even better food over the course of this past weekend. Beer and food so good I suspect there was something unlawful about it.
Here's a recipe I attempted on Sunday called "how to partially fuck up an omelette".
3 brown eggs
2 tblspns milk
a bit of butter and olive oil
grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup diced fresh mushrooms
half a green pepper
fresh Thai basil leaves from my plant outdoors
cayenne pepper flakes
grease a frying pan with olive oil and butter and turn the burner to mediumish - medium low, maybe more toward medium, sort of, kinda.
nuke the shrooms in butter for a minute.
beat the eggs and milk and maybe your meat too if you're in the mood and dump the egg and milk mixture in the pan.
remember after cooking the eggs for a minute that you forgot to chop up the pepper.
chop the pepper.
put the diced pepper on one side of the egg.
realize that you forgot to pick some basil.
run outside and pick some basil leaves.
dump them on that same half of the eggs.
realize that you forgot to get Parmesan cheese from the store and find in a drawer an old packet of it that you got from a pizza joint and dump the cheese on the egg.
remember that you still have the shrooms in the microwave and dump them on the egg.
fold the egg in half over the stuff.
dump salt and pepper on it.
put it on a plate and let the heat cook and seal the insides for a few minutes.
forget to put some of last year's cayenne pepper flakes in the middle.
you now have an omelette that is mostly brown on the outside from way overcooking but tastes good anyway despite your best attempts to fuck it up.
