Intergalactic Gladiator: Intergalactic Omelet

Noel and I huddled together to confer on our plan.

“I can eat whatever you make, Jon,” she asserted.

“Well, that’s not exactly a compliment,” I said. “I’m not the greatest cook, though, so why don’t you cook a dish? I love food.”

Noel looked at me. “No, I want you to cook something,” she replied with a bit of edge to her voice. Perhaps thinking about dishes from her homeworld is just a little too much for her right now. I know when a woman is serious about something, I’m not going to argue over it.

“OK.” I thought for a moment. “I’m pretty good at making omelets, in fact you might say that I'm eggs-celent at it!"

Noel just stared at me.

"OK, I'll just go make the omelet, then."

I got together the ingredients: eggs (from an Earth chicken? Not sure where these came from), cheese, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. I also got some butter and English muffins and Diet Mountain Dew. I know the Diet Dew sounds kind of trashy, but I didn't have any orange juice. I really doubt Noel or Jar Jar have ever had it though, so to them it may as well be a mimosa.

I stirred up six eggs while the mushrooms, onions and peppers sautéed in the pan. When they were ready, I added the eggs and let it cook. I put the cheese on top and covered it to let it fluff up.

I toasted the English muffins, snapped the butter knife out of my Wristcomm, and buttered them up liberally.

I cut the omelet in half and put them and the English muffin onto plates, one for Noel and one for Jar Jar. I placed the salt and pepper shakers on the table as well. I thought that we could easily win this, but something in the back of my mind wondered if Jar Jar made this challenge just to cop some free food.

I was wonderin' where my mushrooms went!

...too bad your eggs are only 'just scrambled', and thus, not very fluffy.

Uh, maybe from an Earth chicken those eggs were not. Jar Jar I saw clucking earlier.

That chicken looks a little funky, just to warn you. Little past it's prime

You definitely don't want to cook that chicken, either. Too rubbery.
