vaey easy to make
It's a team effort! Well, I had an ommellette already in my refrigerator when I discovered this recipe. I think that it is an improved instruction on something that I already learned how to do. Thank you. I overcooked mine and I am planning on trying this recipe to improve my skills. Has a lot of ingredients though. You really need to plan ahead for this type of cooking. It would be easier to make in urban areas. :)
