2. My GF likes the contrast of texture and flavors the watermelon/tomato combination provides. I find it distracting. Fortunately, the tomato flavor doesn't invade the watermelon all that much, so I just pick around them when I'm filling my dish. This is a win-win since I don't care for tomatoes in this particular dish - and my not taking any leaves more for my GF, who really does enjoy having them in there. ;D

Heheh! I understand that very well. I don't particularly like dark chicken meat, but my wife loves it. It's a win-win.

One of my new favorite dishes.. Tastes so fresh and not overly oily:



From App last night comes this sandwich:
Fresh Baked Turkey (that her local store makes daily), fresh baked roast beef, low salt ham, no salt swiss cheese on a whole wheat roll with romaine lettuce, tomato, onion, and ranch dressing.

My alt version will skip the tomato and onion, and I haven't decided on the bread but it might just be one of the healthy breads and (even since I don't need it yet but an experiment) one of the diabetic breads.

This one is titled "Stupidly Simple Omelette" ;)

Get a good quality jar of pesto, doesnt really matter what it's made with.
I've been using:
pumpkin seed pesto / tomato pesto / wild garlic (Bärlauch) pesto

# add one spoonful of pesto to two large, or three medium, eggs per person (I havent tried this with large amounts of eggs, you may need to add less pesto).
# whisk.
# fry at low temperature, ideally with a good olive oil. When it's nicely set towards the sides, you could stick it under the grill for a minute or two to get the middle to set - then flip it, and give it another minute or two in the pan.

The intensity of the pesto makes for a really tasty omelette.
You can make a meal of this by adding cubed (cooked) potatoes and chopped (cooked) green beans.

An omelette with two or three eggs works well in my 18cm pan -- that's 7&1/8 inches (the base is about 13.5cm).
For two people, I prefer to make two small ones - but best experiment with your frying pan/s.

I have a couple of lovely carbon steel frying pans - that's iron that rusts, and *not* cast-iron. You can get them dirt cheap here (, but the equivalent seems to be difficult to find on
Great for omelettes, fried spuds, etc.

Not at all.  There are many on amazon... just look up "carbon steel frying pans".  The one I have is from a local store, but I can also recommend these products that work well on them:
