Omelette in a Bag

Norma gave us a special treat on our last morning there. We had great fun with it. I'll let her tell you how it's done:-

Omelettes in a bag. The way I do it is to use heavy plastic sandwich bags (not the really thin type), write the person's name on the bag with a black marker pen, break two eggs into the

bag and hand it to the person to add whatever they like to the bag i.e. bacon, ham, peppers,

onion, tomatoes, cheese (whatever else you like in an omelette). They then seal the bag tight and knead it in their hands until it is alll mixed. Once mixed it goes into a pot of boiling water for 13 minutes. The omelette will slide out perfectly onto a plate when it's done. Glad you enjoyed that bit of fun.

Note: Sorry, I didn't take after pictures of the omelette; was too busy eating!

I told you about the Taco salads in a bag too, didn't I? Spike's band parents make these for band concerts as money raisers. They use an individual size packet of corn chips, cut it open and put taco seasoned fried hamburger into it. The customer then adds tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and salsa sauce to the bag - whatever they like. They are given a plastic fork to eat the salad right out of the bag. Delicious!!! I love it!

Both of those ideas sound really good.

The bag taco sounds something like the Frito Chili Pies we used to get at the drive-in as kids. An individual bag of Fritos, cut down the edge, and filled with chili. Eat it right out of the bag with a plastic spoon.
