Plant, Grow, Eat - Day 23

I love omelets for dinner . . . 
Quick, easy and oh so good, especially with "garden fillings"!

On the Menu:
Swiss Chard Omelette with chives and tomatoes
Cherry tomatoes
Whole grain toast

 The basic omelette . . .
2 eggs + 2 egg whites beaten (Lacy always get the extra yolks!)
 A few medium leaves of Swiss chard, stems removed and torn into 2" pieces
5-6 cherry tomatoes, cut in fourths, seeds removed and patted dry.
3-4 fresh chives chopped
2 T crumbled goat cheese
Mix chard, tomatoes and most of the chives into beaten eggs.
Cook omelet over med to med. high heat in an olive oil spritzed skillet.
As underside cooks, push back cooked part to let uncooked run over to cook as well.
When almost set, add goat cheese, fold in half or thirds and cook on each side till done.
Serve topped with more chives.
