Omelette a la Provenzal

I like to buy prepackaged stuff from the supermarches here, such as precut veggies for sopas or chop sueys--not that I've ever been inspired to chop any sueys. My favorite convenience packet hands down is the mixed herbs a la provenzal, containing about a quarter cup of chopped fresh garlic and a quarter cup of chopped fresh parsley. This morning I groggily threw together this packet with four beaten eggs and ta da, I present the frockin' Omelette a la Provenzal! Be sure to have a tub of breath mints nearby.

And since we're talking about Argentinizing the old standbys, I've also taken a liking to adding a spoonful or two (who am I kidding, three) of dulce de leche into my espresso every morning for a more stylized version of Cuban coffee. Fawesome.

Alex!!! I'll be stateside 6/16 - 7/13, though I'm thinking of extending the visit. Dude, get a Facebook account. I know you Myspace, so what's one more?

How's LA? Hubby?

That omelette looks fantastic. I think garlic is such a perfect, all-purpose ingredient. Breath be damned!
