Mismatched Lunch

Leftover shrimp soup and a Swiss cheese omelet with duxelles made for a mismatched lunch.

The flavors, however, were great together. The soup had gotten tastier and a little spicier overnight. I lifted the shrimp from the broth while it reheated, as they didn't need any more cooking, then slid them back in to serve and added a big squirt of fresh lime juice. The duxelles paired wonderfully with the Swiss cheese in the omelet, bringing an earthy note to the nutty cheese.

Oh, baby! The china may have been as mismatched as the food but the whole meal was a smooth symphony.

Yeah, that is kinda mismatched, but it looks so satisfying.
I'm making a hybrid soup with my leftovers today; I'll tell you about it later.

I'm on a kind of omelet kick - they are so easy - just eggs, a dribble of water and whatever else suits your fancy.

Cookiecrumb, 'twas.
