A Perfect Omelet (Breakfast Picnic at Hafer Park)

On Sunday, the weather was just gorgeous. After days of endless rains, finally the sun was out. We had a breakfast picnic at Hafer Park. The men prepared a hearty breakfast spread. Whole wheat strawberry and blueberry pancakes, crispy turkey bacon and biscuits were made on site. At the omelet station, David and Jim were preping perfect omelets on a Coleman propane stove. I had a two-egg omelet with everything on it -- green onions, mushroom, tomatoes, turkey ham, turkey bacon, spinach and shredded cheese. It was exceptional-- firm but not dry, creamy on the inside and lightly seasoned. I had it with Jim's salsa fresca with onions, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, jalapenos and scallions --just the right heat and freshness!

I love picnics and for a change it was nice for someone else to make breakfast. I'm so looking to the Memorial Day Campout next week. When was the last time you had a breakfast picnic?

Looks like so much fun! It's midnight here, but I'm totally craving an omelet now. (And I would never pass up biscuits or pancakes!) Looks like so much fun...a fabulous day with friends, for sure.

Hi Elyse,
Indeed, it was one of the best picnics I've been to in a long time...great company, lots of good food, magnificent weather and I was allergy-free!
The kids had fun decorating their canteens with stickers, walking in the park, feeding the ducks (at least trying to), rock climbing and romping on the playground.
Hope you get to go on a picnic before it gets too hot!
