Mother's Day with Omelets Ode to Jamie's Cook-For-Your-Life Recipes....

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful, fabulous mothers and those celebrating with your mothers!

What a way to celebrate this special day with a stay-in brunch of customized omelets. I challenged my family to make me an omelet with my favourite ingredients.... it was also a way to kick-start Jamie's newly launched official Food Revolution site with his champion starter package recipes for cooking. This year's 5th Annual Food Revolution Day (FRD 2016) is all about the Power of Cooking. Jamie Oliver has defined ten recipes which he will be asking people everywhere to join him and cook. This will be centred around ten delicious, nutritionally balanced recipes, which has been defined as the “Starter Pack of Cooking”, each covering a different skill and technique that can give anyone the confidence to cook good, real, healthy meals for themselves and their families, for now and the future. Jamie has spoken about the idea of ten recipes to save your life since his TED talk in 2010.

One of these ten recipes is indeed a simple cheese omelet, which my husband and son Sebastien cooked up a spin with smoked salmon for me (yay! my favourite) and mushrooms, spinach and bacon as an alternative for the family. As Jamie's site says, “this is a great quick meal at any time of the day. Eggs are a fantastic, affordable source of protein, helping our muscles to grow and repair and helping us to feel fuller for longer. Serve your omelette with wholemeal bread and a simple tomato salad for a healthy, balanced meal.”

Dicing and slicing lessons for my six-year old son :)

Smoked salmon, capers and red onions mixed with Dijon mustard and added to the omelet as a filling.

Roll 'er up!

Another omelet offering filled with spinach, bacon and mushrooms. 

Homemade gifts and cards from my sweet boys. The sentiments were universal throughout-- thanks mom for taking care of me and cooking me delicious food! Awww---- !

Smoked salmon omelet served with a side salad, a dollop of sour cream sprinkled with fresh tarragon-- YUM!

Stay tuned as I continue to cook out of Jamie's ten Starter-Pack or Cook-For-Your-Life recipes leading up to Food Revolution Day May 20th! What are my variations on these awesome recipes and will you join me by cooking with yours?
