The Benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp

I have had a Himalayan salt lamp for years and also got one each for my GrandKids. I bought it for the reasons below and if nothing else the ambiance for a bedroom is quite peaceful. I found it interesting the benefits of these lamps so thought would pass it on.

You do need to be aware that there are many fake salt lamps on the market. I have seen them at dollar stores and farmers markets that are quite cheap so I suspect they are not the real deal.

Buy reconditioned products – The meaning of this is the product has been returned to the factory where it was inspected and refurbished to working order. You may need to ignore the scratches and make sure that it comes with a warranty. An example is say a cordless drill that goes for $238 new can be brought refurbished for $157 – Saving $81

 

Make your own salad dressing – A store-bought salad dressing can cost about $3 or more. Make your own.

A vinaigrette dressing is :- 2 tablespoons of wine vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup of olive oil and pepper to taste. Put in a nice container and shake before using.  Save about $1.50 a week if you eat salad most days (half a bottle) – Saving around $75 a year

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.
