Brad has a morning routine.
He hits snooze about a gazillion times, then he gets up, makes two scrambled eggs and coffee, takes a shower, and then gives me a kiss in bed before heading out the door.
My mornings are a little more flexible.
Usually I’ll roll out of bed as he leaves and get myself a bowl of yogurt. Sometimes I’ll feel fancy and make oatmeal with walnuts and raisins. Even less often I’ll go wild and make bacon grits or a fried egg sandwich.
But the other day I came back from a walk with Gibson and there was a lone avocado on the ground under our avocado tree. It seemed ripe, although a little dented on one side from it’s fall.
Gibson was curious. I was curious.
It’s become trendy to serve different kinds of toasts in restaurants now. I had a whole argument/discussion with some friends while dining out recently about whether or not it is a valuable addition to a menu. Personally, I think it’s nice to have just a little bite of something. Especially if it’s an interesting combination and I just want to try it. But am I going to order a whole lot of toast for dinner? Probably not.
Would I eat toasts for breakfast, brunch or a mid-day snack? Absolutely.
I went simple while trying out my front-yard avocado. I toasted up some bread and just smeared it on.
Then I sprinkled on a little salt and chili flake to season it. I know restaurants can get all fancy with their avocado toast combinations, but all little salt and a little spice is really all you need.
Have I seen this being sold for $6 around Hollywood? Yep.
Does it taste better while sitting around with my bed-head in my pajamas? Oh yea.
If you’re just rolling out of bed and enjoying a lazy Sunday, give this a try. You’ll feel instantly hip. And full. And like your skin is glowing from all of the things in avocados that are so good for your skin.
That’s right, breakfast that makes you look good.
