cooking, cleaning, and books too

I wanted to find some thing new to make for breakfast & found an interesting looking omelet in the South Beach Diet' Cookbook. It was an Asparagus & Goat Cheese omelet. I had some already steamed asparagus in the refrigerator, so the dish really was easy to put together, except for the tarragon, which I had to skip. It is probably a good twenty years old or more and was probably inherited from my grandmother. Oops!

But the omelet turned out lovely, and it really was quick & easy. I replaced the tarragon with basil (fresh! and just lovely) and will follow up with some tea made with PG Tips.
Annie, of course, is begging for the goat cheese. Why is it that she can't jump up to her counter when there's a treat up there, but must be lifted up there? Part of the routine I guess. She's a very silly cat.

On my agenda for reading today: The Golden Ball & Other Stories by Agatha Christie, What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman, Northanger Abbey & Persuasion (they're in the same volume, both are by Austen), I've started the last two.

Hi Kim:

I just tagged you with Sarah's book reading meme, which I thought you might enjoy after reading your comments on her blog.

Hope you find this as fun as I did.
