egg

And the interdimensional bokeh lettuce.











*  2 jumbo eggs
*  butter in a non-stick pan
*  1/4 white onion, diced
*  1/8 teaspoon hot chile flakes
*  2 oz Mexican cheese, grated

Method: Mix everything except the cheese. Pour into a pan over low heat. Watch for the egg to set. Sprinkle the surface with grated cheese. Just as the top of the egg begins to set, fold two opposing edges toward the center. The egg disc is now a wide egg strip and has two straight edges and two curved edges. Lift one of the curved edges and fold inward toward the center. Fold again as if folding up a blanket. Fold again, then again out of the pan and onto a plate. 

Forgive the indulgence if you will, the large number of photographs for a simple egg. I almost didn't bother because the meal is not thoughtful, one of those things that staves off starvation and nothing more. Do not mistake this for an omelet or we will send you through the spanking line and mock you brutally. And then I thought, "What the heck." And then all of a sudden it's was like that bit in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance where a student complains about being stuck on writing an essay about the school and the professor tells the student to go out there to the front steps of the school and start describing the bricks, and then the student comes back and goes, "Oh, wow I just sat down and started describing the bricks and I got unstuck about writing and then everything poured out of me." The professor just stood there nodding knowingly.
