It was maybe 4 inches tall when we left. Picture is showing Barb next to tree. (She is 5 ft tall ?) Isn't that something!!!! Kay

It is 48 degrees this morning in Carson City NV so my thoughts are turning to South Texas. It won't be long now till we are once again all together enjoying the hustle and bustle of another season. In the meantime enjoy this recipe!
Omelets in a Bag!
Have your guests use a permanent marker to write their name on a quart size freezer bag. Crack two large or extra-large eggs into the bag (more than two will not work), shake and knead the bag to break the yoke and combine the eggs. Provide a variety of ingredients such as cheese, ham, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc� Have the guests add the prepared ingredients of their choice to the bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up. Place the bags into rolling-boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. Use another pot of boiling water if you have more than 8 omelets to make. After 13 minutes, have the guest take their bag, open it and the omelet will roll out easily onto their plate. Be prepared for everyone to be thrilled. A serving suggestion would be with fresh fruit and a coffee cake, muffins, caramel rolls, jelly rolls, etc� The omelets are a great conversation piece and everyone gets involved in the process. It's easy, convenient, delicious and low-fat!! Have FUN!!
