Oh, hey, Keri! You cook, right! You're a pretty good cook.
Um, I'm OK.
OK. I want to make an omelet, so actually this is really silly, I've
never made one before. How do you make an omelet?
OK, Well, I can teach you how I make them, which is the same way
my father and grandmother make them, which is a little special.

OK. Yeah! Yeah!
Um, first you take some eggs and crack them in a bowl, and whisk
them up, quite, so they're quite high and fluffy, and in a hot pan, and
you need a pan that's that's kind of small, that the sides go up at an
angle. You put some oil and heat it up, so it's quite hot, and then you
take your whipped up eggs, or whisked up eggs, and pour them into the
pan, and as it's cooking, if you take a spatula, and push the bottom layer
of the egg, to the side, to the sides, and then to the middle, so the
uncooked egg gets to the bottom of the pan.

Oh, OK. Wow!
OK. And keep doing that until most of the egg is cooked so you
should have a nice thick omelet and then flip it over, you'll only have
to cook that side lightly. Put your fillings on the top and fold it over
and let it sit just long enough to melt the cheese.

Wow. That sounds really good.
Mm, it is.
Wow. What fillings do you recommend?
Um, well, if you want to do a real simple one, you can just use
some pre-made
salsa and cheese, and that's easy, or you can do something like cut up
some ham and cheese, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, anything that you like.
If you want to make a spinach omelet then you have to add the cooked spinach
to the egg mixture. So it's actually cooked in it. It's inside bacon and sour cream
is nice and Jack cheese.
Oh, OK. I'll have to give that a try.
OK. Sure.
