Omelet in Alberta

A few blogs back I wrote about the lovely breakfast I enjoyed at the Lake Shore Bed & Breakfast & Spa in Alberta. I sat in Kathy Gette's living room on the edge of Lake Newell as I wrote that blog because that was where my computer found the wi-fi signal. I was writing quickly as we prepared to leave for the next part of my explorations in western Canada. It was a whirlwind trip in the first days of summer to very unusual part of the world.

If you get The News-Herald, you'll read the first part of my series about that visit on Sunday. It's about the legacy left by dinosaurs in southeastern Alberta, but those of you who are following my blog have had something of a preview. More dinosaur remains have been found there than any other place in the world .

You'll meet Kathy and her b&b in the second part of the series, which runs July 27. In that story I promise a picture of the shrimp omelet with tequila lime sauce she served me. It was one of the most delicious things I tasted that entire week!

Here's the recipe, fulfilling the FOOD title of this blog. I also am the newspaper's Food editor so I expect to bring more of that aspect of my job into future blogs.

2 eggs, beaten
5 Shrimp sauteed in coconut oil and minced garlic
Sliced red pepper oven roasted until brown
Cream cheese sliced
Cook omelet in small amount of coconut oil. When set, lay thinly sliced cream cheese on top. Add red pepper slices and four shrimp. Fold over and slide onto plate. Top with slice of red pepper, 1 shrimp and spoonful of tequila lime sauce.
