You MUST make this omelet!

We had my family over for a Father's Day brunch today and MAN we ate well! I made an Oven Omelet from The Splendid Table's: How to Eat Supper.

So. Freaking. Good.

It has 2 types of cheese, green apples, onions and chard. I had never even heard of chard before this recipe and I used red chard actually, because it was what they had at the grocery store. It tasted great, kinda spinachy, but better. And the apples added an amazing twist to the whole thing.

How to Eat Supper is an amazing read. I've been reading about it over at angry chicken and finally my much anticipated copy arrived on reserve from the library last week. I think I'm going to have to buy this one though. I have made two recipes from it this week and both exceeded my expectations (I also highly recommend the Santa Fe Summer Pot with Avocado and Shrimp -made that Monday night). This is actually a cookbook you can sit down and read as well, lots of little stories, which I am digging. It is so much more than a cookbook...

As this very busy Sunday winds down I am going to head out into the setting sun and plant me some herbs! I'm going to give this whole gardening thing another try I guess...and then maybe finish off the wine from brunch. Oh and do you know anyone who wants a kitten? I know a really cute one who needs a home. I cannot keep this one, but I am teaching him superb kitty manners. Don't you want to take this cutie home with you?

Awww - I wish we could take another kitten, but 2 is quite enough for our little house. Thanks for the book rec - I'll reserve it right now!

My kitten envy has subsided since I just adopted the cutest kitty ever.
