I don't know what the weather is like by you, but it has been cold and icy here. Good thing he's a snowman, or he'd be in bad shape.
I really hate driving in bad weather, which is part of the reason why my husband and I are looking to move a little further south, and also hopefully to a city, so we just have to drive less altogether. Regardless, being cooped up inside all day yesterday has left me still feeling a little defeated today. I did go to see Slumdog Millionaire with my mom, although that just made me feel like even more of a loser because I messed up my gym schedule and went afterwards instead. That movie is fabulous, in case anyone was wondering.
So I went into dinner tonight feeling like I'd already lost. Well, I don't know how you could actually lose at dinner, but I just didn't feel like being creative. I was going through my blog updates, and up popped a vegan omelet recipe from Sweet Beet and Green Bean, using all ingredients I already had. How perfect. Breakfast for dinner is served.
The recipe called for dill, but I definitely did not have any fresh dill. What I did have, that looks kind of like dill (work with me here, okay?), was fennel! So I put some fennel fronds in it and on top of it.
This recipe was totally delicious, although there are a few things I would change about it. First off, its too big for me. Second, too much oil. As it was, I only used 1 tbsp the first time, and I thought it was unnecessary. I also used roasted asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and added some sauteed garlic.
Pre-folding it over
This really was tasty though, it had a nice fluffiness to it! I will probably be trying it again with different proportions and no oil in the batter. It was the perfect amount of calories for dinner, really, but I like to have something else. I don't know if that makes sense, but I like to have more than one thing on my plate, haha.

Anyone else ever get frustrated when going out to eat? I don't live in a very veg-friendly area, and my mom and I are going out to lunch tomorrow with some of her friends, and one of my friends (who is the daughter of one of my mom's friends). We're going to a pizza place. I guess I could order a pizza with no cheese, because I hate ordering (and paying for) a salad with barely anything on it. They do at least have whole grain crust there. I'm just still trying to avoid a lot of gluten.
I had a great conversation with my yoga instructor after class tonight! He was playing Ben Folds during class, which was actually kind of distracting to me because I wanted to sing! But I was telling him how much I love Ben Folds after class, and he was telling me how his brother in law has met him, tuned his piano, etc. Dear God I was so jealous, but that is so awesome.
So, on that note, today's Cooking Song of the Day: Jane Be Jane - Ben Folds Five
