Tips:
– If you add tomatoes, add them raw. The taste is so much more fresh 🙂
– Make sure the pan is very hot, before you add the omelette mixture.
– Let the egg mixture stand for a moment or two, before adding to the pan. It will rise a bit more that way.
– Mix the eggs and baking powder with a whisk, to let the air in.

Enjoy this! It is our go to dinner for nights when making food is just not on the top of our priority list.

That was fun!! Now I want to share a story!!

The legal drinking age in South Africa in 18! [In my opinion it’s a stupid decision…] And last year on my birthday [18 in SA is a big thing btw] my parents weren’t at home, they were on vacation!! So we behaved and DID NOT have a big house burning party, instead we went to a cocktail bar! Now ever since my sister got her license two years ago we went gallivanting on our own and went ‘cocktail tasting’ multiple times, without any ona asking to see my ID or proof that I am allowed to drink. But that night, ON MY 18th BIRTHDAY, the waiter came up to me, frowned and said, “wait, I really need to see your ID”

Really??? The first time I am legally allowed to drink and they ask for it now?? Just show you the very high IQ of SA… =]

Have a lovely day, bloggers! I will surely enjoy mine! =]
