To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 276 - Breaded Omelette Recipe

I sometimes make this for a Sunday brunch, and it has become quite a favourite with family and friends alike.  It's really simple to make, and as long as you have bread and eggs at home, you can pretty much throw in any other add-ins that your palette or mind fancies.  I made this one with lots of coriander and topped it off with shredded cheddar cheese.

Breaded Omelette

You will need: 

Bread - 6 slices
Eggs - 4
Milk - 1/2 cup
Fresh coriander/cilantro - a big bunch
Cheddar cheese, shredded - 1/2 cup
Salt & black pepper powder - to taste
Crushed chilli flakes (optional) - to taste

What to do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
  2. Grease a small and shallow baking tray and keep aside.
  3. Cut the bread into small cubes - about 1/4 inch.
  4. Spread the cubes in a single layer on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  5. Beat the eggs in a bowl and add milk, coriander, salt and pepper.
  6. Once the bread is baked, pour the cubes into the bowl of egg mixture; mix well till the cubes have absorbed most of the liquid, but before they turn mushy.
  7. Pour this into the greased baking tray and top with crushed chilli peppers (if you are using it), and then with the shredded cheese.
  8. Bake for about 25 minutes until the eggs have set completely.
  9. Cut the omelette into squares, and enjoy with ketchup or without any condiments - it tastes great as is.
For variations - you can add bacon bits, sausage, green pepper, onions, green onions, shrimp - you name it. 

I also made a smoothie with berries and bananas and that really went down well with the omelette.

And I wanted to try to get some reflections, but I didn't have the macro lens to do it right, so I just took a shot anyway.
