It was one of those afternoons. It was one where I almost tossed in the kitchen sink. You see, I was rather ravenous and my palate called for something spicy yet filling. What did I do? I went for my bottle of store-bought salsa (the hot version). That salsa has never seen or felt a chip. Moreover, I’m not a lover of chips. Call me ‘nutty’ call me whatever. Whenever I purchase a bottle of salsa is for other reasons. And today, I felt like a salsa omelet. Si! Si!


Already I had my salsa in the refrigerator for chilling. With a mad flash I retrieved that ‘bad boy’ and warmed about three tablespoons in the microwave. I was in the mood for a protein meal with some spice to it.Eggs came to mind. Been there before and liked the taste. All I needed to do was to whisk my couple of eggs. There was no need for water or milk.

I sprinkled a pinch of salt and black pepper along with finely chopped parsley I had on hand. In a hot skillet, I drizzled olive oil and in went my egg batter under low to medium heat.


As soon as my egg batter was set, I spooned on my warmed salsa and did my flip. Yes, you guessed correctly some of that salsa did a little oozing. Caliente! Caliente! But, I didn’t care. I couldn’t  wait to devour. But first, I had to make a few additions.

I reached for my left-over avocado and sliced on a few pieces.I reckoned that would aid with cooling my palate and provide a smooth and flavorful addition. I felt like I was in a Mexican eatery. All that was missing was cheese and cilantro. I smiled. I didn’t allow that to bother me. I rocked my salsa omelet and garnished with parsley I had on hand. And to top it off I also added a few sliced strawberries to temper all that beautiful heat. Now, that provided a perfect balance. Ole! Ole!

Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
