"Fluffy and Creamy Japanese Omelet Rice with Free Range Eggs"

I love omelet rice very much. Omelets are a very popular food in Japan. There are many omelet specialty restaurants. They only serve omelets or omelet rice. I'm always impressed with chefs who can handle eggs very well. I am not good at cooking eggs but I tried to make fluffy and creamy eggs this time. It was ok. I should be kind to myself. Anyway, I used eggs from the free-range chicken farm near my house. Their eggs are so tasty. Totally different taste from factory eggs. I can taste happy eggs.

By the way, people like to use Onomatopoeia in Japan a lot like Fuwa Fuwa which means fluffy, or Toro Toro which means creamy. There are thousands of Onomatopoeia words in Japanese. Some people say, there are 4,000-5,000 Onomatopoeia words in Japanese. Also, people use Onomatopoeia for food a lot. If you watch Japanese cooking shows, you will hear Onomatopoeia every time everywhere.
