I just cant get enough

First off I would like to welcome you to the land of the blurry camera. My camera hates food, it likes to take pictures of people and scenery but it just hates food, so squint a little and enjoy.

Luxury for me would be to have a greenhouse so that year 'round I could have squash blossoms, these fleeting little summer and fall treats disappear all to quickly so I like to eat as many as I can.

Squash blossom omelette.



Saute a nice handful with butter and a little salt and pepper.



Add eggs.



Add cheese.



Fold.



Eat.

Know what i wish? I wish you had your green house to grow those things, too, AND I wish I was your neighbor. I'd let you make me one of those any time!

doggybloggy said...

Chels PJ: and I would, we could be good neighbors since you have chickens and eggs...

pinknest said...

oh god this looks so frickin good!!!

karen said...

the fold part is the hard part for me w/ an omelette. tips?

doggybloggy said...

Karen: non stick or well seasoned skillet and moderate heat. When it starts to curl at the edges it should be loose enough to scoot around the pan, if so choose the thinnest side and fold over.

Beth said...

I had a dream last night I was eating squash blossoms! I just remembered that....now tell me what they taste like, cuz I am a virgin...HA! Hey, ya gotta be a virgin somehow, right? ;)

I love omelettes, and I love cheese, I buy it by the big block, medium chedder.
I don't have a greenhouse, but I do grow a lot of herbs year round.
Arragano,(sp.?) for one, I have a nice bush of it, I toss it in a lot of sauces.
The pictures look great, actually!

Lara Croft said...

I get sad at the end of summer when all the stoned fruit disappears ;-(

Stephanie said...

I would never think to make an omelet out of that!

doggybloggy said...

Beth: they tast like a super subtle squash but all the more exotic because you are eating a flower.
Littlewing: well you live in CA so you might have a longer growing season and your herb - oregano - is great in all kinds of sauces and chilis.
Lara Croft: I hear you on the peaches fo' sure.
Stephanie: dang girl arent you in the south, southerners are a great culinary inspiration to me...

doggybloggy said...

Pinknest: you cant imagine, the eggs came from a farm near woodstock so they were all dark and yolky and it was just a sharp cheddar but ...well you get the picture

Michelle Ann said...

Doggy, those pictures look great and the food looks yummy. Here's a camera hint...use the macro setting on your camera (usually the flower icon) and make sure you have good light. It helps to make the picture clearer...

snowelf said...

I was going to ask what they tasted like too. Now I know. I've never even heard of them...

And for some reason, now I'm craving zucchini!

doggybloggy said...

MichAnn: I dont have a macro setting.

Snowster: Fried zuchinni was my child hood intro to these flowers

You are too lucky to live in NYC.

doggybloggy said...

Buffalo: same here...and I love me an omelette with cream cheese

HAR: simplicity

Tanya K: that is so flattering I cannot even begin to tell you my elation....I love crunchy jicama with lime, salt and chile powder

Jason said...

Holy Moly, that looks awesone. Did it go under the broiler?

snowelf said...

Hey db!
I just had to let you know I made an omlette tonight!!
It was just cheese. (cause i didn't have anything else "good" to put in it.)
But it was still delicious! :)

--snow(ster)

doggybloggy said...

Jason: nope,I tend to keep my eggs on the "moist" side and the broiler crisps up the outside too much.

Snow: egg-celent...the trick is in your cheese and favorites rule...
