Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Omelet

 This is how you smoosh together fall flavors.

Butternut Squash Omelet-6

Today is the day we put all the fall things in our omelet.  Except for pumpkin.  We’ll leave him alone until later. 

I totally overcooked this omelet, which is better than undercooking your omelet, but still.  I was in the other room taking pictures of the roasted butternut squash when it dawned on me that the omelet was cooking. 

I remember one Christmas I got this cooking-themed chemistry set.  It had the the ingredients to make lollipops.  What kind of children’s gift would have a ten  year old melting sugar?!  It didn’t go well.  My best friend and I left the room, probably to play Barbie’s (because what else do you do when you’re ten?), and then we started smelling smoke and we were like “that’s weird”.  There weren’t any flames, but the sugar was burnt to a crisp and smoking A LOT.  I bet they don’t sell that chemistry set anymore.  The only thing I remember liking in chemistry was the factor labeling method.  It’s just so helpful and makes so much sense. Moving on.
