Some change is good. Other times change can kill your bank account. A while back, Kansa let me try to change my job, this change was not good for the family at all. With failing eye sight my job driving cars from point “a” to “b” has become dangerous, so I began looking for other work before I got in trouble on the road. It was not until I found a new job that our bills got behind and I realized that it doesn’t matter how much more you are making per hour if you are not making the same amount of hours.
But why stress it is time to make an Omelet.
One of the fastest and easiest ways to stretch you food budget is with the simple connivance of an omelet. By beating some eggs and prepping what ever it may be that you chose to fold into the center, you can stretch your budget by about half a day pre person. But I am going to come back to this. For now I am going to cook myself an omelet. So what makes the perfect omelet? There are as many opinions about the answer to this question as their are egg lovers. If I was to ever open the Bed and Breakfast that my wife and I have dreamed about for years, I would make one of its selling points a complementary made to order omelet every morning for each guest.
So what makes the perfect omelet? I like to add a teaspoon per egg of sour cream to the mix. This adds body and taste. Whip the eggs with conviction until the volume of the egg in your bowl multiplies. Preheat the pan and melt some butter in to the pan. A gas stove is ideal but you can perfect an omelet with an electric stove if that is what you have. The problem with electric is you don’t have an even heating surface, so you must carefully turn the uncooked part towards the hot spots and continue to do this until the egg is fully cooked. Once the egg is fully cooked cover one half of the omelet with the content that you want to stuff the omelet with. Now fold the other half over the stuffing and top it with the cheese of your choice. Now serve your omelet.
There seems to be a myth among Americans that has people believing that the lower income population must eat less nutritious foods to keep food on the table. This is just not true. If you buy more produce and less meats your budget goes much further. Beyond just saving more the healthier you eat the more money you save in medical bills. I know, your kids are picky eaters: then let them starve! What right does a child, who is not paying for his or her food have to enjoy eating. Let them complain, or get a job.
Besides, children will eat as needed and America is seeing a pandemic of childhood obesity. I think it is time children learn to eat better.
I can speak from experience when I say that the word of wisdom that the Mormons are taught to fallow will not only keep you healthy but also save you and your family tons of money in the long run. If our are not buying tobacco, alcohol, or coffee, you are spending that money on other things like socks. One thing I need to make sure I do is buy more socks. I am down to one pair that are not completely warn out. Like I said before, “sometimes change is good.”
