I’m back from visiting my grandpa with my mom–we both drove to his house, and it was so nice to have a place to meet in the (kind of) middle.
This is my mom and my grandpa.
Aren’t they sweet?
I had a super nice visit, including one dinner out during which I consumed four glasses of wine, ate copious amounts of roasted garlic on bread, speared many delicious olives (turns out I do like olives, when they are served in expensive restaurants that I don’t pay for!), and downed a huge serving of pumpkin risotto and scallops–and then topped it off with tea and dessert.
It was worth every calorie, each garlicky burp, and definitely worth the tremendous food coma I quickly fell into.
But you know what really made the trip worth it? (Other than spending time with my family, of course). Coming home and seeing how much I was missed. And not just because Fritz didn’t have anything to eat for three days. They missed my company! Even Henry ran to the window meowing frantically when I pulled in.
I did manage to catch a cold, though, and now I have the voice of an old lady lumberjack who chain smoked five packs a day. It’s pretty sexy.
To try to recover, I’ve been eating this breakfast of champions. Eggs + avocado = happiness.
Eggs on Avocado Toast
I won’t insult you with an actual recipe. All you need to do is get a ripe avocado.
Slice it up and place on some dry toast (I used a little over a quarter of an avocado for my breakfast).
And smear it onto the toast like a delicious green butter.
Top with eggs cooked in your favorite style (I’m an over-easy kinda gal) (Don’t take that the wrong way) (Nevermind).
And season with salt and pepper.
I love eggs. I always have to have a sit-down chat with myself in the morning and decide if I want to go the oatmeal-chia seed-banana route or the eggs-and-toast route. It’s a tough choice.
Having a ripe avocado can easily push me to the savory side of things, though. I’m always amazed at how easily it smears on toast and how delicious it is.
How I made it so many years without eating avocado is beyond my comprehension.
Enjoy! What’s your champion breakfast of choice?
