The omelet...

Remember those roasted mushrooms and onions I kept aside?
Well here they are, repurposed for a delicious omelet!

Warm them first and then pour the egg/egg beaters slowly over them.

Cook until set and fold over the edges.

Add 40 calorie wheat toast, some jam, and some salsa.
250 calorie plate!

Yesterday the duck and I went out for an early supper to the Cheesecake Factory.  Since they now have those wonderful skinnylicious things it's easy to eat there.  I had the best salad of my life, it had chicken and black beans and all kinds of wonderful things and I was able to stay on target with it too.  It was so big I actually ate until I got tired!  I never did finish it either.  Too bad the dressing was already on it because I couldn't bring it home, it would have been all soggy if I tried.  Anyway it was wonderful and I will have it again next time.

Happy Wednesday everyone, I'll be at the pool today!


  1. I hope it'll be warm enough to swim. Getting ready to turn in for bed. We set out this morning and didn't get back home until after dark. Never did get to cook my blackeye peas and collards. So I guess we'll get them tomorrow. LOL!

    So much for trying.

  2. Looks really great. I love breakfast for dinner so an omelet is a quick fall back choice for me.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I love ommelet and mushrooms. :)

  4. Well this morning I go to see a tailor to fix my second suit. Of course my new one from last year is to big now since I've lost my weight. Also I have seven pair of pants and I only have one that fits. Time to buy a new one.
    I enjoyed talking to you yesterday morning. I can't wait to see you and Chuck on the Breeze soon.


  5. Now that's a good breakfast! Yum.

  6. that's a purrfekt omelette! our the mom cannot do that to save her life. MOL.

    purrrsss n xoxoxoxoxoxo your Sammie Pie

  7. I really wish I liked eggs. This looks like something you could eat for breakfast, or for dinner.

  8. Your breakfast looks awesome. I just don't like egg beaters. I'd have to put lots of veggies in them to get them down. So I've eliminated eggs from my diet altogether. Bugger.

    Now that salad sounds wonderful. I eat lots of salads too and I always put the dressing on the side. Then I eat very little of the dressing. Yummy.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from sunny and cold California. :)

  9. Ciaoooo!!!

    A tasty, colorful, nice dish...i like these natural meals!
    We had some cold but sunny days, but today rain and rain!

    I hope you can do your pool exercises!!!

    Big hugs!!!

  10. Salsa! Thud!
    I never think to use it anywhere besides corn tortillas for a snack! My dad swears by it as a topper for baked potatoes too!

    We're not much for mushrooms at my house, but I would definitely use green peppers and tomoatoes to spice up an omlette these days.

    Thanks for sharing, keep it coming!

  11. So glad that you enjoyed the Cheesecake Factory skinnylicious salad!
    Your omelet looks and sounds yummy..... (drool)

    Happy Wednesday to you, Bee:)

  12. I purchased a "green fry pan" not the color green they are actually grey colored. However, you don't need to spray the pan before cooking. I've used it a few times with pancakes and eggs and it seems to work really well of not sticking.

  13. My bil Rick made us all a yummy ham and cheese omelet yesterday and we finished up my potato casserole with it and some OJ... pretty sure it wasn't 250 calories through.

    I weighed myself as soon as I got home. I didn't do half as bad as I thought. I'll know for sure in the morning, which is when I normally weigh myself, but I think it will be pretty good! And tonight is baked haddock. YAY!

    big hugs from the much warmer Swamp! xoxo

  14. I love omelets, but not mushrooms. I would add green peppers and onions to mine. Baked potato and baked pork chop for dinner.

  15. I am probably the world's worst omelet maker but I bet I could put all of those veggies into some scrambled eggs and it would taste just as good!

  16. Next time, maybe ask for a take home box right away and split up the salad before you start digging in...and of course, get the dressing on the side.


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
