60 MPH winds knocked out Stove and Computer

Thursday of last week downed trees fell on the power lines and knocked out our stove, microwave and computer motherboards. We are now reestablished at my parents house with cooking appliances and computers. We had our first home cooked meal this morning. Western omelets and Cinnamon rolls. I cannot take credit for the Cinnamon rolls, they came from Mom's freezer.

Another challenge here is figuring out where to set the dials on an electric stove top. I started heating the oil in an egg pan at the mid setting, five on a dial that goes to ten. First I tossed in Fresh minced Garlic and diced Spanish onion. When the onion was translucent I added diced Bell peppers. Quickly after the veggies were  mixed together I added diced Turkey Ham. I sautéed this until the onions started to brown and added in Eggs whipped with Basil and dried Tomato seasoning. In Mom's cupboard there are several mixed seasoning jars to play with. 

As I studied my creation I decided my Omelet was not cooking fast enough. I increased the dial setting to seven. Lifted up the omelet in the pan and sent the raw egg under the the half cooked omelet. It was time to add diced Tillamook sharp Cheddar cheese and a peeled/diced slicer tomato.. I immediately turned off the stove top and folded my one inch high omelet over. It was darker than I anticipated. A setting of seven appears to be to high for egg dishes. I have nine days to learn how to work these settings because my parents return from the Olympic Diving Trials then.
