Oops…I P’ed too early last week.  Which, although unfortunate is a lot better than peeing too early!  So, tonight we’re taking a step back in the alphabet along with our step back in time and heading back to the letter O in The A-Z of Cooking.  The chapter I skipped is called “On Your Own” and is, of course, meals for one.  I eat a lot of meals on  my own so I was looking forward to trying some of the recipes starting with a Rumanian Herb Omelette.

Rumanian Herb OmeletteIt may surprise you to know that my knowledge of Rumanian (Romanian?) food is…well…sketchy…would be an overstatement!  Non-existent except for a herb omelette would be another.  But how authentic is the herb omelette?  I turned to the keeper of all knowledge aka Google.

This article on Romanian Food doesn’t mention an omelette. It does have a beef salad cake though!

No omelette on the Wiki either.

This wiki does.  But there doesn’t seem to be anything specifically Romanian about it.  In fact, it seems like a fairly bog standard omelette recipe. 

So, now feeling somewhat older but none the wiser, here is the recipe from The A-Z of Cooking.

The addition of sour cream seems suitably Eastern European and added a nice flavour to the eggs and herbs.  The flour?  Hmm…I’m not entirely sure about it.  The texture of the omelette became slightly more pancakey than a normal omelette which was not unpleasant, but not altogether necessary.  Maybe, in this age of cro-nuts and cruffins I should be embracing the concept of a new hybrid food a little more enthusiastically but I’m not sure the world needs an omecake or a panlette!

I also used tarragon, parsley and chives as my herbs because (smirk smirk) I have them all growing in my garden.  You can pretty much use what you have or what you like but this was a deee-licious mix!

Okay, back on track now and next time we’re looking at Q.  Will it be 100 things to do with a quince?  Quirky food?  Quiet food?  Find out next time!

Have a great week!
