Happy Valentines Day?

For those of you not so blessed as to have someone in your lives (because you are some kind of loser or happen to be the only member of your species living on this cursed planet), might I suggest this cheery thought. Tomorrow is as far away from this annoying holiday as you can be. Yep, nearly 330 days until people start talking about Valentine's Day.

If that doesn't work than make some Spanish Omelets.

Recipe for Space Lobsters Spanish Omelets

  • A little bit of Olive Oil.
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped up
  • 1 pinch of every spice available but mostly chili powder, onion powder, Creole spices, freshly ground peppercorns, and salt. Actually you'd be better off leaving out the Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 potato finely Chopped
    2 medium to large eggs or one Extra large egg or however many eggs you feel like, stirred up.
  • 1/3 Cup Salsa (any kind you like, including the fruity varieties (I like Pineapple Salsa myself).
  • 1/3 Cup Shredded Cheddar or Mexican Blend Cheese. The Four Cheese Mexican blend not the kind that has spices in it.

Step 1. Heat up burner, and pan. Put Olive Oil in the pan.

Step 2. Put Garlic and spices into pan. Wait for them to become fragrant. If you have no sense of smell, wait approximately 2 1/2 hours. That will learn you not to have a sense of smell. OK, wait 30 seconds or so.

Step 3. Throw Potatoes into pot. Cook 10 to 15 minutes depending on how small they are and how crispy you like them.

Step 4. Make a little volcano of potatoes, with a hole in the middle going down to the pan surface. Drop the eggs in the volcano. Wait a moment for the bottom of the eggs to set, then start mixing them up. Let eggs set somewhat (about 2 to 3 minutes at most).

Step 5. Throw in Salsa. Cook until it seems mixed in and evenly temperatured.

Step 6. Through potato salsa egg mixture in a bowl with a lid, and stir cheese over the top. Mix up mixture and cover for about 2 minutes to let cheese melt.

Step 7. Queue up Battlestar Galactaca DVD and get out soda.

Step 8. Remove lid from container and eat. Ponder how much better Battlestar Galactaca would be if Cylons were more lobster like.

This recipe can be modified to serve more people if you get more potatoes and eggs and salsa and stuff. If you needed me to explain that to you, let me reiterate, I was only joking when I said you needed to cook the spices for 2 and a half hours.

Enjoy. And remember, tomorrow is another day.
