Serving Up Omelets for Virtual Breakfast

Have you ever been at a late night party and found yourself inviting everyone over to your place for breakfast? In the blinding brightness of the morning sunlight you look around and suddenly realize what you’ve done. Holy moly… when are they likely to start arriving? What if they all show up? Let me check the fridge. How many eggs will it take to feed 170+ people. I don’t have enough cutlery! Then I remember. It’s “virtual” breakfast. ::big sigh of relief::


Explanation. Over at Rachelle Gardner’s blog, Rants and Ramblings, readers were invited to her Friday Blog Party. By means of comments we mingled and munched (don’t ask my opinion of pop tarts with cheese dip) and introduced ourselves. It was an innovative approach to a blog roll – an opportunity to get to know each other and make a few new connections.  I’m looking forward to visiting all sorts of new blogs.


But you’ll have to excuse me now. I have to get started on those omelets. If I don’t answer the doorbell just come on in. You’re welcome to look around. The coffee should be ready in a moment.

  1. Carol, when I shut out the lights at Rachelle’s I’ll definitely have one of those omlettes. I’m not sure what the difference is between a Spanish omlette and a Denver omlette, but since I’ve got plenty of both in me, either one is fine.

  2. Hi, Anne and Jordan. Thanks for stopping by. My usual breakfast fare is just OJ, but if company’s coming I’m happy to cook.

    BTW, a Denver omelet (omlette, omelette, or whatever — everyone seems to have their own way of spelling it) tends to have a filling of chopped mushrooms, green onions, bell peppers, and ham. A Spanish one has thinly sliced cooked potatoes, diced tomato, onion and a handful of peas cooked right in with the egg mixture. Then I also like to serve it topped with a spoonful of salsa and some grated cheese. I doubt it’s a “traditional” Spanish omelet, but it’s the way my Dad used to make it.

  3. Hi Carol,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Rachelle’s party was a great way to make some new connections! I’m enjoying the socializing! Looking forward to getting to know you!

  4. What a wonderful idea. And so easy on the grocery bill. And a great way to meet more like-minded bloggers. Have a nice Father’s Day, Carol.

  5. Hi, Carol.Wish I’d gotten here in time for breakfast; I love omelettes.

    I’ve read through several of your posts and enjoy your writing. It flows and has a friendly feel. The lake picture is gorgeous, but the thought of using an outhouse keeps me from being envious. Lilacs are one of my favorite flowering shrubs, too.

    Sorry I wasn’t waiting on the porch to welcome you when you visited my blog. I appreciate you stopping by.


  6. Thanks for visiting Jodi and Carol. It’s lovely finding new voices here!

    Carol: I chuckled over your outhouse comment. If it’s any consolation, last summer our cabin renovations included a tiny 3′ x 3′ room equipped with a marine toilet for those times when the trek ‘out back’ doesn’t appeal.

    Joylene: Thanks, I hope you and your hubby enjoyed your Father’s Day, too. It was especially nice for us as we went to the airport last night to meet my husband’s brother who arrived from Taiwan for his annual summertime visit.

I'd love to hear from you!
