a flower a shallot and a ZUCCHINI

I know the title sounds like Ed McMahon, asking Johnny Carson’s Carnac, (A link for those too young) on the Tonight Show.

This morning, like every other morning.  I opened my refrigerator door, and looked inside. What was I was going to eat for breakfast today.  I’m sure everyone else does this. You look, and see nothing you really want. This morning I was drawn to a wrinkly old zucchini, and an ancient shallot.  Both, ready for the trash bin.  I decided to cook something with them.

I washed the zucchini gave it a quick chop, peeled the shallot and diced it as well.  I thought they would be good sautéd, so I heated up some evoo.  First went in the shallots, they cooked for a couple of minutes. Then the diced zucchini, with a pinch of kosher salt.  I let them sizzle for a few minutes, but felt it needed some liquid for it to cook thoroughly.  Back into the fridge I went.  I found some delicious tomato soup, that my husband had made on Sunday.  This would be perfect, not just for cooking but also for added flavor. I poured the soup into the pan, put on a lid, and cooked it for another minute.  I opened the lid and thought, NOW WHAT?

Back into the fridge, aha, eggs.  I whipped up 2 eggs (only one yolk), dumped them into the sauté pan….

Voila….a delicious omelette.

  1. That sounds scrumptous, Gail. I’d never have thought of using the tomato soup, but that was a good idea. How sweet the flower! Yes, XO, David! Chuckle… I like the way you photographed it too, BTW. Nice, Gail.

  2. I enjoyed reading your post so much, Gail. It captures the essence of blogging – sharing a little something from your day with the rest of us. Plus…you made me hungry! ;)
