I know the title sounds like Ed McMahon, asking Johnny Carson’s Carnac, (A link for those too young) on the Tonight Show.
This morning, like every other morning. I opened my refrigerator door, and looked inside. What was I was going to eat for breakfast today. I’m sure everyone else does this. You look, and see nothing you really want. This morning I was drawn to a wrinkly old zucchini, and an ancient shallot. Both, ready for the trash bin. I decided to cook something with them.
I washed the zucchini gave it a quick chop, peeled the shallot and diced it as well. I thought they would be good sautéd, so I heated up some evoo. First went in the shallots, they cooked for a couple of minutes. Then the diced zucchini, with a pinch of kosher salt. I let them sizzle for a few minutes, but felt it needed some liquid for it to cook thoroughly. Back into the fridge I went. I found some delicious tomato soup, that my husband had made on Sunday. This would be perfect, not just for cooking but also for added flavor. I poured the soup into the pan, put on a lid, and cooked it for another minute. I opened the lid and thought, NOW WHAT?
Back into the fridge, aha, eggs. I whipped up 2 eggs (only one yolk), dumped them into the sauté pan….
Voila….a delicious omelette.
Oh, the flower… This was the first thing I noticed when I walked into the kitchen this morning.
Thank YOU David xo
