Ennio Morricone's Moscow Farewell (from Mosca Addio) - A Brief Music Insight

I first listened to this piece of music in the late 90s as part of some compilation music CD. Didn't think much of it. Came back to it a year later. Didn't think much of it.

Step 2: Put a skillet on slightly less than medium heat -- 4 out of 10 setting -- and spray it generously with Pam. While the skillet heats up, go back to beating the eggs and/or cutting onions. You don't want that egg mixture "settling down".

Note: I buy already cut onions. I prefer red onions for this particular recipe.

Step 3: Once you see a little bit of smoke coming off the skillet, add the cut onions to skillet. Add a half teaspoon …
