Being self-sufficient is a fundamental key to living a healthy, useful life.
Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than someone who specializes in only one subject.
We all need to be as independent as possible in our lives.
It doesn't matter if you are a doctor, a business person or the stay at home Mom, living a self sufficient life will bring you greater happiness than anything you will do in life.
Learning basic cooking should be on everyone's list of things to accomplish in their life.
If you can't cook your own steak and eggs, you probably aren't going to make it in most goals you place in your life.
Cooking will enhance your social life by giving you something to talk about, that we all have in common, our love of food.
Here is a recipe for one of life's most delightful pleasures, eggs.
Basic Omelet Recipe Most people are frightened by omelets, but if you can make scrambled eggs, you can make an omelet.
An 8" omelet pan is the best choice of cooking utensil, but any nonstick pan will do as long as it's round and between 6 inches and 10 inches in diameter.
You should always use a heat-resistant rubber spatula to turn your omelets.
Ingredients: 2 eggs 2 Tbsp.
whole milk or cold water 2 Tbsp whole butter or oil Salt and ground pepper, to taste Preparation: [1] Crack the eggs into mixing bowl and beat them with a fork until they turn a pale yellow color.
[2] Heat a heavy-bottomed nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat.
Add the butter or oil.
[3] Add the milk or water, salt and pepper to the eggs, then, grab your whisk and whisk like crazy.
You are trying to beat as much air as possible into the eggs.
[4] When the butter in the pan is hot enough to make a drop of water hiss, pour in the eggs.
Don't stir! Let the eggs cook for up to a minute or until the bottom starts to set.
[5] With a heat-resistant rubber spatula, gently push one edge of the egg into the center of the pan, while tilting the pan to allow the still liquid egg to flow in underneath.
Repeat with the other edges, until there's no liquid left.
[6] Your eggs should now resemble a bright yellow pancake, which should easily slide around on the nonstick surface.
If it sticks at all, loosen it with your spatula.
[7] Now gently flip the egg pancake over, using your spatula to ease it over if necessary.
Cook for another few seconds, or until there is no uncooked egg left.
[8] If you're adding any other ingredients, now's the time to do it.
(See note.
) Spoon your filling across the center of the egg in straight line.
[9] With your spatula, lift one edge of the egg and fold it across and over, so that the edges line up.
Cook for another minute or so, but don't over cook or allow the egg to turn brown.
If necessary, you can flip the entire omelet over to cook the top for 30 seconds or so.
Just don't let it get brown.
[10] Gently transfer the finished omelet to a plate.
Some items that can be included in an omelet are: Grated cheese Sautéed mushrooms Diced and sautéed onion Chopped cooked bacon Diced ham Hash Browns Cooked Vegetables There's no limit to the number of fillings you can use with this basic omelet recipe.
Just by adding other ingredients to the omelet you can change it from a breakfast meal to a dinner meal.
Try adding a fresh green salad, a hard crust bread and a fruit desert for a simple evening meal.
Buy yourself a dozen eggs, then practice how many ways you can enhance your life by becoming an expert at cooking omelets.
