Omg, I love bananas. Eat loads of them. I've got potassium for days, son.

But banana chips... I can't do it. They taste so different from fresh banana. It's one of the few foods that I really can't stomach, for some reason. :lol:

I've been practicing my french omelette. It's hard because I don't have a nonstick pan.

I've noticed there are some really bad ones out there that are just nauseating somehow, with a taste I can only describe as vomitesque. But there are nice ones too :)

Yes! Exactly! That's the taste I'm referring to! :lol:

I'll need to have a hunt for better ones, then. Dried fruit and nuts is great if I'm doing a survey, since I can keep them in my pocket.

I’ve removed the nonstick coating from one of my pans and I found it actually works better for some things, like eggs, when properly oiled.

I think I got the ones I was eating from Scotmid. They have a really nice tropical trail mix too :)

I know how to make over medium eggs but have trouble doing it without oil. Since where I’m at my friend can’t handle much grease without heartburn so he says use butter. I need to try that some time.

I usually use a bit more butter than recommended, and stick it under the grill for a minute to finish. Probably cheating. :P

EDIT: I also use a splash of milk in my omelettes. I don't think that's the "proper" recipe, but I like it. Maybe that helps, too? :shrug:

The thing with the french omelette is you keeping stirring it before you let it sit, so adding fat to the pan doesn't help.

My method to, like, decant it, is to lift up a corner and stick a pat of butter underneath and then slowly roll the omelette out. It works, but it always leaves a thin film of egg stuck to the pan.

Hmm. Maybe it's a heat issue? Slower cooking?

We've established that I don't actually know how to make a proper omelette, though, so you should probably just ignore me. :P

Normally eggs don’t take long to make. Usually do it at a low heat sometimes. Scramble eggs the easiest to make. Sometimes with scramble eggs onc it gets to a certain point take it off the burner and it’ll continue to cook for a little bit.

Yes, agreed. I always take scrambled eggs off the heat just before they're ready!

Yeah. I think making scramble eggs with cheese in it and other ingredients easier than making it into an omelet but it’s basically the same idea. Like pancakes.

Actually, it would fine if you cooked it hot, because that would create a crust. But the whole point of the french omelette is to leave it creamy and yellow, and that requires constant stirring and low heat.

The French, though. It's amazing how much better French food is than British food, even though they share the same basic ingredients. It's all in the technique.

Eating a soup and salad from Specialty’s. Ugh. The people working there are so incompetent.

Also, their food is bleh. Why is American chicken tortilla soup always so frothy and peppery?
