I don’t even know what happened in December 08, in between traveling and holidays I’ve lost the entire month.
Now things are back to normal ( well…my normal might not be that normal) and I’m happily catching up with life.
I received the New Year in South America and I have to admit I really love the feeling of starting the year during summer time.
What I liked the most was the way people wished you a happy new year; you feel that they really meant it. While they hold you they look at you in the eyes and smiling they wish you love and prosperity, health, good luck and many wonderful things.
It really made me think, I usually just say “Happy New Year”. Next year I will honestly customize my wishes. Actually, why wait until next year?
To all of you, from the bottom of my heart I really wish this would be the year that you find peace and harmony.
I wish you will feel loved.
I wish you will laugh every day.
I wish you could see the people you love often.
I wish you health.
I wish you will feel young and beautiful.
I wish you will have time to play, time to look around and admire.
I wish you will have no regrets.

Happy 2009

I would love to share this delicious and simple Omelette recipe I’ve got from Recipezaar, one of my favorites sites.
Caramelized Onion & Goats Cheese Omelette:

1 red onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon butter, preferably unsalted
4 eggs
40 g goat cheese
1 pinch rosemary
1 pinch sage
1 pinch oregano
1 pinch marjoram
1 pinch thyme
Salt to taste
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Rocket or baby spinach leaves or salad greens, 2 handfuls
1/2 tablespoon olive oil (or 1/4 tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 tablespoon fresh lemon juice) 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Melt the butter in a (preferably non-stick) pan and sauté the onion and garlic until they have softened and golden browned; remove from the pan. If you want to use the same pan, rinse or wash it as necessary and wipe it clean with kitchen towel.
Whisk the eggs lightly and pour into a (preferably non-stick) pan; when the base of the omelette is beginning to set, add the cheese, onions and garlic, your choice of herbs and salt and pepper to taste.Cook the top of the omelette under a grill; slide the omelette onto the serving plates and serve immediately with your choice of salad greens drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with lemon zest.

That sounds like a really tasty omelette! I'd probably go with chopped chives instead of red onions.
