I just had my lunch. I made an omelette, which look ten minutes start to finish (I looked at the clock), and it was delicious. I highly recommend it.
Here’s what to do.
- Put a plate in the microwave to warm up for two minutes.
- Fry a rasher of bacon together with a chopped mushroom.
- While that’s happening, break two eggs into a cup, add a dash of milk, plus salt, pepper and oregano.
- Put a slice of bread in the toaster.
- When the bacon and mushroom are cooked, move them onto the warm plate.
- Pour the egg mixture into the hot pan. Let it look, occasionally moving the more cooked parts from the middle to the edges and letting the less cooked parts flow in to take their place.
- While it’s cooking, chop the bacon.
- Grate some cheese onto the nearly-cooked omelette, add the chopped bacon and mushroom, and fold it over.
- Slide it onto the plate, along with the slice of toast that popped up at just the right moment. Butter the toast.
- Enjoy a cheap, healthy, delicious lunch!
Look at it this way. What have you done in the last ten minutes? How productive was it? Wouldn’t it have been better if you’d used the time to make an omelette instead?
(My lunchtime today: ten minutes to make the omelette, ten minutes to eat it, and ten minutes to write this blog entry about it.)
