Brunchin' At Home

What better way to spend a Saturday morning than cooking up some brunch at home? And if I'm in the kitchen, I will default to my (usually) fail-proof omelets. I love omelets because they're so versatile; you can make them as simple or as fancy as you wish. I like folding mine in a half circle, just the way Remy does it in Ratatouille (which, incidentally, is still one of the best movies for foodies, in my opinion).

On this particular morning, I made some omelets with prosciutto, a shredded four cheese blend, onions, and a sprinkle of parsley flakes on top. I even took the time to pay some attention to plating since, let's face it, who doesn't like their food to look pretty?

The boyfriend also had a bag of pumpkin pancake batter mix from Trader Joe's, so we made some cinnamon-y pumpkin pancakes too. We're still experimenting on getting the heat and texture just perfect, but I'm sure we'll be pros in no time. Two foodies in the kitchen can't go wrong!

Looking forward to some good Dine About Town dinners in San Francisco this weekend! Eat on!
