Cosy Omelette

I made a Tea Cosy for my friend's tea pot (she got me tickets to see Adele and for that I am ETERNALLY grateful).  I made the pattern up as I went along - I can do that with simple knitting but not with crochet!  Anyway, this is what I made .....



However it was too big and baggy...........................


So I put it in hot water and it stretched.  So I put it in boiling water and it stretched even more.  So I put it in the tumble dryer on HOT and it just became stretchy and very baggy so.....................................


I gave it to Huffle and he put it on his head..........................



........................doesn't he look happy?  And there is even a space for his ears!!



This evening we made our signature Omelette (Listen to me, "signature" - I've been watching too much of The Great British Bake off - LOVE IT).

It is a 4 egg, six vegetable, 3 seed omelette with herbs and parmesan.

Veggies and seeds tossed in a little Olive Oil


We used Carrot, onion, courgette (from our garden), Mushrooms, Green and Yellow pepper, Pumpkin, Pine Nut and Sunflower seeds.

Omelette in the pan


Just add Rice and Peas and serve on a hand painted plate - VOILA


Phew - am full now.

Hi there ... just seen your comment on my Flickr pic so thought I would drop by. Love your ingenious way of re-using the tea cosy ;-) Coincidentally my OH had a very similar omelette yesterday made from veg lurking in the fridge and a courgette from the garden all mixed in our chooks finest eggs. I'm following you now x

Loving the tea cosy/hat. The ear holes are in just the right place. Think if you line the inside and stuff it it will shrink a little.

Omelette looks very tasty, hope you enjoyed it. Didn't he take you out to lunch yesterday - what a let down!
