I've kind of given up on omelettes...mainly because if I see any runny bit of the egg instead I'll gag! This post has convinced me to give them another shot! I do have to say as well that I much prefer frittatas...and so do my kids ;-)

I hate when people chew gum and let the entire world see and hear what they are chewing!!!! I have to admit though, I'm a gum chewer! I just can't do mints...I feel like my breath loses it's freshness the minute I finish chewing on them!

I sort of think that ice cream (at least by American standards) is quite dense...I mean, I've bent a spoon before trying to dig some out of a tub!!! Anyhow, I much prefer gelato and I'm in Sardinia, Italy for the summer so you can just imagine how much gelato I'm eating ;-)))
