Our days our organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?
My favorite daily ritual encompass the three days a week I work. Every morning my co-worker and I walk to the kitchen for breakfast. It’s quite a walk to the kitchen but by the time we arrive back at our office we’ve gotten a good bit of exercise.
I usually don’t get breakfast but I do get a cup of organic coffee. It’s an important ritual because that is my special time to fellowship with my co-worker who is like my son.
What am I going to have for breakfast? I’ll have an omelet. An omelet? The only way I can make an omelet is a scrambled egg omelet-yes it looks like scrambled eggs.
I decided to try to make a folded over omelet looking omelet. As I cooked the beef breakfast sausage, onion, mushrooms and spinach in a non-stick skillet I contemplated the success of this endeavor. I spread the filling evenly in the skillet and poured the eggs over it with great care. The final step was spreading the grated cheese.
I mimicked what I’ve seen done time and again in restaurants and on TV but was afraid to try until now. Carefully moving the cooked egg aside while tilting the pan to cook the remaining egg was a little scary but I got it right.
An experienced cook would flip the omelet in the air to the opposite side but I’m not there yet. I used two spatulas that worked out well. I’m glad it didn’t break apart. The non-stick skillet made each step easy. I successfully slid the omelet onto a plate and it was a beautiful sight to behold. It tasted as good as it looked.
Why do I entertain that little voice whispering in my ear? I don’t know but I’m glad I decided to move forward with making the omelet.
It’s exciting to conquer a fear I’ve had for years. I’m looking forward to my next conquest.
What are you gearing up to conquer in your life?
