Finaly Friday

I usually wake early. I accomplish a few chores around the house before I go to work...less now that we have an empty nest...I go to the grocery store to get the necessay supplies for the day's lesson plan...and I check my www places for any activity. Well, today I had my first sale on Etsy...I was so excited that I startled the cats!! I've heard others refer to this as the "Happy Dance"! What I sold, was a Simple Pumpkin. I like this pumpkin because you can set it out now and leave it out until after Thanksgiving!



At school, I start my day with my Fitness for Life class. They work out every other day with one of the PE teachers. The other two days a week we meet in the FACS room to discuss nutrition and prepare a healthy recipe. Today they made Omelets...the freezer baggie kind. The kids think this is awesome. They call them egg burritos, egg pillows, etc. They are impressed. Here are the directions.
INGREDIENTS
2 eggs
Ham, chopped
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Chopped onion
Chopped green bell pepper
Chopped fresh tomato
Chunky salsa
Fresh mushrooms, sliced

DIRECTIONS
1. Crack the eggs into a large resealable freezer bag. Press out most of the air, and seal. Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs. Open the bag, and add the ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, and seal the bag.
2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place up to 8 bags at a time into the boiling water. Cook for exactly 13 minutes. Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily.

Of coarse, all the add-ins are optional. The beauty is that you can individualize these omelets.

I had never heard of making an omelet this way. Sounds interesting and no messy pan clean up afterwards!

WooHoo on your etsy sale! I am determined to get an etsy shop of my own up and running one of these days. I remember from selling homemade goods on eBay a few years ago what a rewarding experience it is to have someone buy something that you make!

I love the little pumpkin! :-)
