Peasant Omelette is the American omelette version, a rich fluffier veggie and cheese filled hardy complete meal by itself.
Treat yourself once in a while with a breakfast so heavy that someone should remind you that its your lunch time. A peasant who works in the farm all day definitely needs such a hardy meal to keep him going but these days soccer moms,stage moms, angry moms, helicopter moms are all overworked than peasants so they too could try this stuffed omelette 😉
Now u may be thinking… do I fall into the above categories hmm…. yes and no 🙂
It is so strange how simple things in life matter the most to us.
Few years back my husband came to the US then after few months he insisted that the little one and I should come over. So I reached here one night jet lagged, tired, worried how the new land would be etc..etc….. A chubbier looking husband and party was there to receive us at the airport. I was standing there smiling amidst all the weiriness and he on the other hand rushed to check if I got all the boxes off the conveyor belt. 🙂 Instead another Indian lady hugs me and welcomes me.:)). They fed us for the next 2 days while I slept and woke up at ungodly hours. As I had not started cooking my husband suggested going out and having dinner. So we went to this chain. I looked at the menu like a question paper, ran my eyes up and down and finally chose an omelette..something I had eaten all my life how bad could it be !
As we waited for our order I found the waitresses taking food for all the other tables something with strong egg smell. I asked my husband where the main menu card was. He looked at me through the corner of the eye and smiled. Just then my order came.. the plate overflowing with food.A large stuffed to max omelette and pancakes.That is when it dawned on me that omelette can be a full dinner ..Oh what a filling meal that was! I later dragged myself to the car thinking now I know why he looks chubby and what they mean by potion sized meal 🙂
