who wants it


N
ot a day goes by where someone doesnt ask me 'whats your favorite omelete, dogg?' And then I am forced to narrow it down to one. I would have to say though that if I could get squash blossoms everyday then the squash blossom omelete would be the favorite.



My old standby favorite that goes way back to when I was in college is the mushroom, alfalfa sprout and cream cheese omelete. This flavor combination is hard to describe and even harder to beat. Try it, its addicting. (and for the record - no one ever asks me what my favorite omelete is)



If you can name this accurately I will put your name in a hat with whomever else names it accurately and have a drawing to give it away. Cheat however you want but the name and spelling has to be exact. Good luck and I hope someone wants the dang thing! If it starts to seem like no one is getting it I will post more and more revealing photos. Oh and I forgot to mention that I will be quietly putting those names in a hat and I will tell you later who the lucky contestants are.



Here is another clue, oh and did I forget to mention that the contest ends at midnight tonight, yup midnight on June 8 in NYC that means nine o' clock for all you Westies out there and 6 am June 9 for all you Euros. I will be putting up one more clue around 8 pm NYC time to try and help out.



Ok last clue you bunch of half wits. I will give this thing away whether you want it or not! I should probably just pick someone like Marjie - for example, but it is highly impractical for her.

3 minutes left and we only have four people that said ' molonillio' its going to make a complex drawing.... sweta, leela, diva and selba......but wait at the last minute ....
...we got got girli by the skin of her teeth.....5 people will be entered into the contest.

I want it ... but I'm not sure what it is ... yet. Need to stare at it some more. LOL

Marjie said...

If you take the blossoms off the squash plant does it still bear fruit? Yes, I'm a dumb*ss. Your thing looks a lot like the center locking hub cap on my 4WD GM Suburban. I don't need any more; thanks anyway.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Ok, here's my guess: its a molinillo for making hot chocolate!

doggybloggy said...

diva: dont go blind

marjie: remember spelling counts

diva: you just wont give up will you

snugs said...

I dont know what it is so how the heck do I know if I want it or not? This feels like a test and I don't test well, I was blonde in a previous life ya know..but I'd sure like that omelette..hey doggy, what's your favorite omelette??

KennyT said...

It's hard to guess what that is, looks something porcelain....

Laurie said...

I'm with Diva - I stared pretty hard, but the best I can come up with is Mexican Pottery.

Love the squash blossoms too! The last time I found some was at the Farmers Market in Charleston. I filled them with goat cheese and sauteed them. Yum.

I can't believe the size of that mushroom!!! It was so big it was scary, but your mock scallops looked out of this world.

Pooja said...

Wow that omelette looks divine! Oh I cant quite guess what it is but looks like ceramic pot!

The Diva on a Diet said...

some might say I'm a like a dog with a bone. ;)

Marjie said...

Hey, I spelled Suburban right!

Sweta said...

Omelettes with squash blossoms-sounds like a flowery poetry!! Gosh-2 guesses,it looks like a "artistic" plug for the kitchen sink or a fruit bowl(did I get all the spelling's rite????) ;)

finsmom said...

Looks like wooden hot chocolate maker thingy that my mom brought me back from Mexico :)
I already have one though, so if I am right you can give my guess to someone else :)

Leela said...

Oh, that's a Molinillo (para chocolate, etc.) for sure. I bought one a while back but have never used it. It's too pretty to use.

I have never seen or used alfalfa sprouts and omelet in the same sentence before, but, you know what, you got me curious. I sprout my own alfalfa all the time and always have mushroom, cream cheese, and eggs in the fridge. If you say it's addicting, I'll give it a shot.

Jenn said...

I want it!! I want that omelette!! I can't think of that that things is.It does looks like some sort of pottery. I suck at that stuff. haha...

The Blonde Duck said...

Is it a pot?

Sara said...

I wouldn't have thought to put sprouts in an omelet. Will have to try it next time!

doggybloggy said...

snugs: then I guess you wont win it

kenny: thats the whole idea

laurie: those mushrooms blow portabellos away

pooja: good omelete

diva: you said it not me...

marjie: I was simply reminding everyone about the rules...LOL

sweta: good spelling

finsmom: I will keep that in mind

leela: the omelete is great - I cant wait to hear what you think

jenn: a delivered omelete doesnt sound good to me...so I cant send you one

tbd: I cant say

sara: it is unbelievably good - to me at least

Denise said...

I have to admit I have never had them but you make them look good..lol

Katherine Aucoin said...

I don't have a freakin' clue. I am a bigger dumb arse than Marjie. It looks like some sort of spindle...i need more clues.

buffalodick said...

I don't know, but an omelette sounds good right now...

Marta said...

I'm going to be adventurous and call it a "mortero" which is used to grind not only cocoa but other seeds...
I'm an omelette queen, one every day without fail! I've never seen squash blossoms, they must be delicious :)

Tanya Kristine said...

one of those catholic water thrower thingies...i think i spelled it all right.

dude. that omelet sounds VERY good and i'm making it. i adore sprouts.

Chef Fresco said...

That omelette looks so yummy! I don't know what that thing is though - looks like a ceramic pot to me too.

♥peachkins♥ said...

squash blossom omelette? first time I've heard of it. We use it on sauteed veggies though.

Selba said...

I want the omellete!!!

The contest already closed? :D

Gina said...

Maracas for a very fancy person??....lol.

Selba said...

Okiedokie... the contest is still open, rite? ;)

So.. I did some research and found out that Molinillo or moussoir (an authentic Mexican Chocolate "whisk" or "stirrer") has a few different of types although the purpose is the same which is for mixing warm chocolate, Atole, and Champurrado.

The ones that you are showing in the pictures here has a special name which is "Oaxacan molinillo".

Sweta said...

Molinillo, MOLINILLO, M-O-L-I-N-I-L-L-O!!!!!!
Ha-what a beauty :)

burpandslurp said...

AAAHHH! Loooks pretty awesome! I love omelets.
um...what? no idea >.<

burpandslurp said...

ok, I got it. It's a stick for witches to do voodoo chants. Dang, I'm a genius!

Donna-FFW said...

hmmmmm.. hmmmmmmm.
some kinda grinder?

One of my fav omeletes involves sauerkraut and kielbasa.

JennDZ - The Leftover Queen said...

squash blossoms rule!

Reeni♥ said...

My first thought was a butter churner. Duh. A hot chocolate maker - it looks so big for that. I love squash blossomes! Stuffed and fried. And cream cheese omelets are the best!

5 Star Foodie said...

Looks like I've arrived too late for guesses but a good riddle, not sure I would have known the answer if it wasn't already given. Love the idea of an omelet with squash blossoms.

girlichef said...

Oh man, skin of my teeth (busy day)...I really did know it was a molinillo. Um, Gonzalez.

Belle said...

Never seen it and never heard of it. Can you send me an omelette instead?
