Lord John & Percy’s Man Omelette

Lord John & Percy’s Man Omelette

The Lord John Series

He was acutely conscious of Percy as he worked.  Small memories of the body lingered on his mouth, in his hands, making them uncertain with steel and flint.  He felt Percy’s eyes on his back, heard the small rustlings of quilts as that lithe bare body shifted in the bed.

His mouth tasted of Percy.  Each man has his own taste; Percy tasted, very faintly, of mushrooms — wood morels, he thought; truffles, perhaps.  Something rare, from deep in the earth.

The steel chimed and sparks flew, glowed brief against the char but didn’t catch.  He had tasted himself once, out of curiousity; faintly salt, bland as egg white.  Perhaps Percy would think differently?

April Fool’s.  You had to know I wouldn’t do that for real…I wouldn’t want to get too gross, right?  After all, this is a food blog.

You’ll find last year’s here.

    When I woke up this morning I was prepared for some April Fools joke– When I saw DG FB page and her blog post I say the #majorspoiler. I figured that was one, but I will never know cause I don’t read DL. This was not what I was expecting at all–great one, thanks for the laugh!!

    LOL! When I followed the link I was all excited for an ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ omelet like my husband will (sometimes) make on a weekend morning. It took me a minute … I keep forgetting it is April Fools day.

    There is actually a cookbook on Amazon for anyone who’s interested in trying out recipes for this….ingredient. I have not read the cookbook or tried any of the recipes; I just know of its existence. I’m pretty sure you don’t need me to link it…

    I was thinking mushroom omelette which would cover both descriptions. Good joke though.
