I tried to stop this, I really did. But Goon insists I post his pictures. 

On Sunday morning, Goon decided to make us breakfast, which I thought was great. He rarely does anything in the kitchen now so I was quite excited to see what he’d produce. I think I must have been a bad influence on him though because, when he’d finished, he came asking for my camera.

Apparently Goon wanted to photograph his creation. Here was his first attempt at photographing what is apparently a ‘Goon Gourmet Omelette.’

Goons omelette

This omelette was apparently made from 1 egg and 2 rashers of bacon with some cheese. An ‘interesting’ ratio of ingredients I’m sure you’ll agree. I especially like the use of rosemary and a small chunk of blue cheese as a garnish.

Sadly the omelette turned out to be inedible because Goon didn’t realise that adding a lot of salt to something with that much bacon was a bad idea. But at least he tried. And the second photo actually looked quite cool.

It makes me wish I had natural light at my disposal for my dinner photography.


  1. All I can say is well done for trying, Goon. Practice makes perfect I suppose (hope;-)). That is a rather strange ratio for an omelette, but you can’t blame a guy for trying eh

  2. LOL - that’s great! Hey, at least he gave it a go and tried something new. And kudos to you for getting him as far as wanting to photograph his food! All I get at home is eye-rolling…

  3. How sweet! My husband, Brian, is our resident omelette-maker. In fact, they are all he cooks. And he insists on doing them Julia-Child-style, sans spatula, so sometimes they end up on the floor. But hey, at least he tries.

  4. That second picture isn’t a bad effort at all! It could be a form of getting his own back, making you wait for your breakfast (I get the eye-rolling too Jeanne!)?
