How To Make A Simple Omelette


I was in the mood for an omelette but needed a bit of inspiration. I watched the Jamie Oliver video below, and using  his technique I made myself an omelet and it was sooo good!

Even though it is early November, my tomato plant is still producing tomatoes, and I have a pepper plant that is still going, too.

 I chopped 1/4 of a tomato and 1 small orange sweet pepper, briefly sauteed them in some olive oil, and set them aside to use as filling for my omelet.  I also shredded some cheddar cheese.  It was by far the yummiest omelette I have ever eaten!
