When I woke up earlier this week, my stomach was churning, as if a snake was uncoiling in my belly. While it’s not an unfamiliar feeling as of late, that morning's feeling of nausea and tummy troubles certainly was. Whether the uncomfortable sensation is caused by nerves, anxiety, too many cocktails the night before or lately, a tiny human growing inside me, it always remains the same.
There are lots of ways to make an omelet in Japanese cuisine, but these Japanese polka dot omelets might be the cutest way to do it. These polka dot omelets are basically a regular yellow omelet—except for the bright white spots that make it look like you've magically reversed the egg whites and yolks.
I know you love breakfast food, but how often do you wake up and think, “This outfit would be so much better if I could sport a hyper-realistic sunny side up egg somewhere on my person?” Most days, you say? Well, my friend, there is a product just for you straight out of Japan. The country is well known for its love of fake food.
The best holiday for ludicrous food gimmicks is definitely Halloween (with St. Patrick's day in close second if for no other reason but green beer). People are free to throw fake blood, prosthetic fingers, edible eyeballs, and all sorts of zany, typically off-putting items right in your favorite snack.
