The Lover’s Brunch


  • 4 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Bowl
  • Buttered frying pan
  • Salad of bananas, peaches, pitted cherries
  • Hot rolls and apple butter
  • Champagne
  • Water

Combine the eggs, ginger, salt and pepper in a bowl. Fill half an eggshell with water twice, pouring the water in the bowl each time. Beat the mixture until it’s fluffy. Cook it in a lightly buttered frying pan over low heat until the bottom of the omelet is done. With your fingernail, trace your initials or name on the top of the omelet and his/hers at the bottom. Pop it under the broiler for a moment to cook the top. Fold so that the initials are hidden.

Along with the omelet, serve a salad of bananas, peaches and pitted cherries (all of which have a power to arouse love). Hot rolls and apple butter also go along nicely (it’s the apple butter with the power, especially if you made it yourself).

If you can, share this omelet from the same plate for a romantic brunch. Wash your brunch down with champagne.
