This morning I woke up feeling pretty sad. Today is my last full day in NH and my last day to scrapbook. Tomorrow, I pack everything up, clean up and head back to the city.
That sadness lasted for approximately 10 minutes, until I went to take a shower and found a large, black spider perched on the drain. *shudder* After I managed to pseudo-drown it and then flush it down the toilet, I went to finally get in and found two more! Of course, even after I killed those two, my short, luke-warm shower was filled with dread that there were more spiders lurking in my shower poof waiting to extract revenge for the death of their friend and family.
…I think my vacation is wrapping up at about the right time.
Anyway, I don’t know if this counts as a recipe but its one of my favorite lunches and it’s INCREDIBLY easy to prepare, especially if you are making it at lunch at work. It requires almost zero, night-before preparation and the ingredients can be thrown in a bag in about 60 seconds when you are running late.
- 1 piece of bread
- 1/2 an avocado
- salt, to taste
2. Mush 1/2 of the avocado onto your toast.
3. Salt to taste
4. Eat the amazingness that is your new favorite lunch and marvel how few ingredients are in it.
If I’m having this at work for lunch, I will have 2 pieces of bread and use the whole avocado. According to the Avocado website , one serving of an avocado equals 1/5 of the avocado. Seriously? Who eats only a fifth of an avocado?! On the plus size, a whole, medium size avocado only has 250 calories and is packed with vitamin C, potassium, protein, and healthy fats.
I like to serve mine up with some raw carrots sticks or fruit. It’s an overall healthy lunch! and it’s SO. EASY.
By the way, this is me procrastinating working on my scrapbook. I have over 50 pictures of Pompeii that I need to tackle and that’s after i weeded out 50+ that I didn’t deem scrapbook worthy. I don’t even know where to begin so I spent most of my morning soaking up the sun and reading A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. I love vacation…minus the spiders…
