The wonderful talented Chef John at The Pink Shell Resort and Marina in Fort Meyers Beach really knows how to nest his eggs! By far his variations of omelet creations are the best I’ve ever had. One would think this is easy to prepare with amazing presentation…for John, yes! For me??? I’m still working on it. To start the day off each morning we were blessed by Chef John’s smile brighter than the southwest sunshine! John greets his guests ready and all set up to create omelet recipes your way. A hearty breakfast will start with a fresh variety of crisp veggies, including mushrooms, onions, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, ham, bacon, sausage bits, and shredded cheeses are all available to pick and choose from. He begins with his special omelet pan, either a spray of pam or butter~ your choice, fresh eggs any way your heart desires…and the show begins! Such a delight to watch this master beat his eggs joyfully, so full of passion in all he does. So I am sure these omelets cannot be reproduced~ unless your smile radiates from the heart! Whether John is cooking for his guests, his church or his family~ I am sure Chef John finds himself praying as he preps! I most definitely know this by his delight, and I also know that the kitchen and preparing feasts for souls is the perfect place to pray~ and add the one last most important ingredient “GRATITUDE!”

What’s not to love and feel grateful when eating outdoors, overlooking the gulf in paradise with his magical breakfasts packed with protein, nutrients and Love! Poached or over easy atop a nest of sautéed veggies, meats and cheese~ delish! Thank you John for the Happy Morning Sunshine and your special nest to start off my day! Wake up to Sunshine, Happy Nesting!  xoxo  Dishin’ with Denise
