How To Make The Best Omelette

images

Be fussy with the eggs you buy.

Eggs lose flavor the longer they sit in the fridge, so get the freshest eggs around.Cage free eggs or free range or even better straight from a farmer who has his poultry grass fed and even better than that your own chooks.
Whisk three eggs vigorously with a little salt and pepper in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth—evenly incorporating the whites and the yolks at this stage helps ensure a smooth, custardy omelet.

Heat the skillet.

Heat a pat of butter over medium in a small nonstick skillet until it bubbles gently. Non stick pan is the best to use. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet and immediately start scrambling them with a rubber spatula.

Don’t Over Scramble

Don’t scramble too long. As soon as the eggs form small loose curds and the mixture is thickened, stop scrambling and shake the skillet a bit so the eggs form an even, solid layer, making sure they extend to the edge of the pan. As the eggs start to set up, sprinkle whatever fillings you desire down the middle—a classic French omelet with fines herbes involves finely chopped parsley, chives, chervil, and tarragon, but any soft herbs, in any combination, will be delicious. A little crumbled soft goat cheese makes a lovely addition, too.

Perfect the tilt and roll.

Tilt the pan away from you over the burner, and starting with the edge closest to you, start to gently roll the omelet onto itself and away from you, at roughly 1-inch intervals, with your rubber spatula. Don’t worry if the eggs are still a little runny at this stage—they’ll continue to set as you roll, and undercooked now just means they won’t be overcooked later.

Keep rolling.

Keep nudging the omelet away from you until it’s formed a roll at the base of the tilted pan. Immediately remove from the heat.

Flip and finish

Complete your roll by tipping the omelet out of the pan and onto a plate. Tipping this way means the omelet sits seam-side down on the plate; in other words, it looks perfect. Sprinkle with more finely chopped fresh herbs and finish with a little bit of sea salt and, if you like, freshly ground black pepper.

Stretch your dollars — Get rid of Your Debt

Debt-Free

 

It does not matter where you live. Credit card debt can be one of the most difficult things to overcome in trying to get ahead financially. Having a high balance on your cards will hurt your credit score, and it can be extremely challenging to break the spending habits that got you into debt in the first place.

Thankfully poor credit is not the end of the world—  There are some credit cards for people with bad credit — but it can make your finances more challenging. Not advisable unless it is totally necessary it costs.

One of the best ways to improve your credit while tackling debt is to prioritize making payments on time and reducing spending, so you can chip away at your credit card debt rather than add to it.

Paying off your credit card debt may also help you save money. The sooner you pay it off, the less you’re going to pay in interest and can save over time.  We all  kinda know that,  but sometimes we need to reminded of the advantages of getting rid of that debt. Its like a load off your shoulders.

The COFFEEBOXX – Everyone Should Have One

This machine appears to be indestructible.  If you love coffee like I do and your favorite and fresh,  you need this ‘go anywhere ‘ machine. They are about $300 which is about what you pay for the household machine and it uses coffee pods just like the keurnig. Its rough, tough and almost unbreakable.

I personally would like it for camping but the producers of this machine had the building industry in mind mostly. The workers would be getting good quality and tasty  coffee.  You also could take it hunting, I mean how many hours are you out in the field and salivate for a good cup of coffee especially if its cold.

It also makes hot water so you could make tea or hot chocolate any and many sorts of drinks. So in my opinion its a beauty and should have one of these for the outdoors

It was a product that was introduced on jumpstart and with money invested the company has been able to complete the project.

I believe a great buy.

You can purchase this on amazon, just click here

11 States Where $1 Goes the Farthest

1470840624524

This is a report from USA today which I thought quite interesting. Note Texas is not mentioned.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis, which published in July its report for 2014 prices for household consumption across the country. Your dollar will go a lot farther — 30% farther, in fact — in states like Mississippi and Arkansas THAN say Washington, D.C., and Hawaii.
This of course is 2 years ago, there may be a few changes but basically it gives you an idea of where it would be cheaper to live. If you want to move.

The states where your dollar (rounded to the nearest cent) is worth the most are:

1. Mississippi ($1.15)

2. Arkansas ($1.14)

3. Alabama ($1.14)

4. South Dakota ($1.14)

5. Kentucky ($1.13)

6. West Virginia ($1.12)

7. Ohio ($1.12)

8. Missouri ($1.12)

9. Oklahoma ($1.11)

10. Tennessee ($1.11)

11. Iowa ($1.11)

The cost of living in 35 states was below the national average.
The areas where your dollar is worth the least are the District of Columbia (85 cents), Hawaii (86 cents), New York (86 cents), New Jersey (87 cents), and California (89 cents).

Grill Time for Fish Fillets

This is a handy chart as sometimes its hit and miss when cooking fish fillets. Salmon fillet is a fish you do not want to spoil. Too long – Too dry.

I was asked after I posted this was this time too long? 

Well no. This is what I do. Cook it for 5min at reasonably hot temp, then turn it over and turn element off and let it cook in that heat for another 5 min. If its thicker then longer. The salmon then stays moist and cooked to perfection. I actually put the skin down first as I like to eat the skin nice and crispy.
