Somebody brought fresh figs into my office today. I'd never seen fresh figs before--I had no idea what these things were!  :laugh:

I think I prefer my figs in newtons.  ;D

Jeff, you're such a traditionalist, meat-potato-veg-diced-pears kind of guy! 

You're missing out.  Fresh figs are in season right now and they're wonderful.  Classic pairing with prosciutto, or in a tart with other fruits and almonds, perhaps. 

Earlier this summer, I did homemade pizza on the grill with sliced fresh figs, gorgonzola, arugula, and a drizzle of balsamic.  YUM!

But I don't know how to eat them. They're not a Pennsylvania German kind of thing.  :laugh:

I don't know what to call that. Maybe a flat-bread kind of thing. But it sure doesn't sound like pizza.  ;D

For supper tonight I'm planning on roast beef with mashed potatoes gravy--in the form of a Weight Watchers entree!  :laugh:

I'll supplement with some leftover mixed vegetables--carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower--a slice of whole wheat bread, and probably a small dish of diced pears for dessert.

Supper was quite good, actually. The Weight Watchers entrees are pretty good. FWIW, I find WW's pasta entrees better than Lean Cuisine.

I remember when I worked in the supermarket and walked through the produce section to learn the codes used on the produce, I saw some strange shit.

LOL

I think I'm glad I didn't shop where you worked!  :laugh:

Supper tonight, a two-egg and cheese omelet, and two turkey sausage patties.

On Friday when I did my weekly grocery shopping, I discovered this hinged, microwavable gizmo for making omelets in a microwave oven. I bought one and tried it out this evening. Works well, and easy to clean up.  :)

You mean one of those plastic-thingies I guess:




Do the omelettes taste like real ones made in the pan?

Quite similar.

Well, I thought it did.

The trouble with using a frying pan is if you lack the skill to fold over the omelet without it breaking. If you don't have the skill, instead of having an omelet you just have a pile of fried egg and fillings.  ;D  These little pans take care of that for you. Half the egg goes in one side, and half goes in the other.  I have seen special omelet pans for use on the stove top that work essentially the same way, but I'm afraid that I disagree that any piece of stove-top cookware is as easy to clean up as a microwavable dish.
