On the menu this week:
Brekkie: A deconstructed omelette
Lunch: stuffed roast butternut

Brekkie: Deconstructed omelette
The essence of this is not combining the  components of your omelette but cooking them separately. Use an out of the box approach so for this you can go with your preferred omelette fillings, whatever you have available.

You may need:
-Diced peppers
-Basil leaves
-Whole rings of peppers

Sauté your diced peppers and set aside
Sauté your mushrooms and set aside
Use your whole pepper rings as an egg ring and fry your eggs

Plate your omelette as you’d like keeping your plate clean and simple

You will need:
-Butternut Squash
-Beef Strips
-Mix of veggies
-Brown rice
-Brocolli and/ or Cauliflower

In the butternut squash is beef strips mixed with stir fry (any mix of seasonal vegetables), toasted cashew nuts

Pay special attention to plating and presenting  this well.
