Do you have a few back yard chickens? How about a garden, with maybe some spinach, tomatoes, peppers, perhaps even some small potatoes? None of these things take a lot of space, time or effort – and you would be surprised at the rewards that can be reaped.
Omelettes are the ultimate back yard meal; they can be pulled together super quick from just the most basic ingredients. Mix and match the things you have growing in your garden for a seasonal and customized on-a-showstring dinner.
What you need:
Three or four eggs for every person
Splash of milk
1 tsp of butter per omelette
Selection of vegetables – Sliced tomatoes, cubed bell peppers, spinach, slices of cooked and cooled potatoes (choose a hard variety) … whatever you have, find a way to incorporate it! Feel free to add whatever fresh herbs you have flourishing, they will add a flavor totally unlike the dried herbs that most people use.
That’s the joy of vegetable and herb gardening, making the most of what you have and harvesting the produce that you have raised from seed.
