Mexican Style Omelette with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Tomatoes

It’s been a rough week here in Calgary. As many of you have probably seen, we’ve had Alberta’s biggest flood in history. Over 100,000 people were evacuated from their homes. The damage is tremendous.  Things are slowly getting back to normal here but there are still people who have not been able to return to their homes yet. Never in a million years would I have thought there would be such a flood here in Calgary. We were among the lucky ones who have not been affected by the flood, both in our current house and the one we’re moving to. But others were not so lucky. Many people have lost their cars and homes. It’s a tragedy.

So it’s safe to say it’s been very stressful for us this past week having to deal with this and our move  which happens to be this week so lots of work with packing and cleaning and well I’m sure you know the drill. But before I leave this house, I decided one last homemade breakfast was in order. We’ve lived here for 3 and a half years and have enjoyed many delicious breakfasts.

This breakfast is a simple omelette with some of my favorite ingredients.
