5 Down. 5 to Go!

No. 3 on my 40 Things to Do before I Turn 40 List is Learn to Make 10 Different Types of Omelets. I tried to find recipes of Traditional Omelets but it seems to me that this lovely dish is so versatile - you can basically do anything you want with it. There are of course some specific kinds of omelets and I think I should try them. I feel like I can already make 10 different kinds of omelets but here are some that I actually took pictures of.

For the next 5 I will try and make some with a little history.

Clockwise from the left:

1. Omelet with Mushrooms & Fresh Parsley
2. Omelet with Mushrooms & Parmesan
3. Omelet with Red and Yellow Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, & Cheddar
4. Omelet with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Feta, & Pesto
5. Omelet with Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Spinach, & Basil

The Naked Now

The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See

Book Club has been really good for me. For the second time in one year, at one book club, I can say This book is changing my life! The other book was Becoming Human by Jean Vanier.

This book demands many blog posts and hopefully I will take the time to write them. For now I just want to say that if you resonate with anything I have said in this blog for the past seven years you might want to give this book a try - if you're ready... or not.

I do hope that the book finds you when you are ready. I know if I had read it 10 years ago I wouldn't have been so passionate about it. Now however, it has become one of my favourites!
