Good Stuff, no particular order
tarka dhal - with extra garlic, oh yes
beans on toast - made with hand-sliced crusty white seedy bread, oh yes, yes yes
toast and marmalade with tea - toast with coffee and any low sugar spread or jam but never marmalade, staple breakfast
omelette (specify) with salad (specify) - this is just weird. Salads are a speciality, and I make and enjoy a great mushroom omelette, but never, ever, together

middling
a Golden Delicious - In Kent in the 1960s, I had a dew-dappled GD straight from the tree and it was heaven, but shop bought they're generally crap. Good dozen or so apples I prefer
a Cadbury's Flake - it's all right, but basically you're buying air
Planters dry-roasted peanuts - more-ish, but too salty for me unless I've been exercising a lot

No thanks
Haagen Dazs strawberry cheesecake ice cream - H-D are a rubbish brand and Strawberry Cheesecake is a very poor excuse for an ice-cream flavour. Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey or Cherry Garcia on the other hand....
Maltesers - teeth-cloying crap. Didn't even like them when I was a kid
Walkers Worcester sauce crisps - an abomination

Not vegetarian, going from memory
Melton Mowbray pork pie - almost always disappointing, usually too much pastry. Used to quite like the Pork Farms variety as a reliable on the road snack
bacon and egg - with tomatoes mushrooms pork sausage black pudding fried bread baked beans and toast, properly prepared, heavenly. On its own, a bit drab and perfunctory
assorted little sushi tray FROM M&S - M&S food can fuck right off, all robbery and snobbery
tinned Irish Stew - bachelor chow. Been decades since I ate one - basically since I learned how to cook in my twenties
Thai green chicken curry - green chickens best avoided :) . Thai curries have nothing on Indian ones

You might not like the combination, but 'weird' is the last thing it is. The French, particularly, make omelettes with little side-salads (rocket, tomatoes) all the time.

What do you have with your omelette, then? or do you just eat it on its own?

Nowt weirder than the French :) .
And what you describe, I would call a garnish. My idea of a salad is more full-on than that. If I want eggs with salad, I'll make egg mayonnaise.
What do you have with your omelette, then? or do you just eat it on its own?

As a main course, depending on the 'filling' in the omelette, possibly potatoes (chips / boiled new spuds / a jacket) plus steamed vegetables - anything seasonal, but staples are calabrese, broccoli, frozen peas or spinach. Roast Mediterranean vegetables are good, too, as is ratatouille, and grilled tomatoes, possibly topped with grated cheese. If there's none in the omelette, garlic mushrooms are also a good side.
As a snack/light meal, wholemeal bread and butter, maybe baked beans.

Could've gone for a better variety of apple, but I'd gladly eat everything down to the Irish Stew.

Toast and marmalade, bacon and eggs and omelettes are my favourite things on the list. Most of the list I'd avoid.

Planters dry-roasted peanuts - always welcome.
a Golden Delicious - blahness.
Melton Mowbray pork pie - nowhere man
Haagen Dazs strawberry cheesecake ice cream - love good ice cream. Haagen Daz is not good.
tarka dhal - runner up
a Cadbury's Flake - coming in at number three, but they're just not big enough
bacon and egg - fake bacon, maybe.
Walkers worcester sauce crisps - number one, top of the tree.
assorted little sushi tray FROM M&S - no idea.
Maltesers - ambivalent.
tinned Irish Stew - never had; never will
beans on toast - fifth. A safe bet.
Thai green chicken curry - negative
omelette (specify) with salad (specify) - mushroom or tomato with a green salad = fourth
toast and marmalade with tea - marmalade is the Devil's own preserve.

Avoid is a bit strong, but most of that list isn't really what I love. I love ice cream but find Haagen Daz watery and bland. I don't even know what tarka Dhal is, I presume some lentil curry thing. I'd never order that in a restaurant. These are your favourites but I guess everyone's list would look quite different.
