Eggs two ways


Inspired by seeing Julie & Julia the other day I decided to try Julia Child’s method of making an omelette by swirling it round the pan, then violently jerking it into shape before tipping platewise. As you can see from my picture (which is mysteriously glowing) I failed. My omelette cooked too much on the bottom and wouldn’t respond to my pan-shaking efforts. So I just did it the old-fashioned way: waiting for it to set and dragging the edges to the centre as the Bible instructs. I served it up with heavily-buttered toast and used up the last of my home-made mayonnaise. I felt like Edith Massey’s character from Pink Flamingos.
