Avocado Toast

It’s my first official day of Spring Break……yeah!!!!!!!!

My first official order of business…sleep in……well, that failed! So, instead I got up and at it. To  get your motor running, you need fuel, a.k.a. breakfast. I eat breakfast everyday, it may  be a smoothie, my favorite is our Raspberry Chia Smoothie or a granola bar. If we are home Tim and I liked scrambled eggs or Tim’s famous egg sandwich……he makes the best egg sandwich!!!

I have decided on my Spring Break to work on my eating habits……they are way out of hand. I have jumped on the Avocado Toast band wagon. There are a million recipes, that I am sure are just like mine……but I really like my Avocado Toast!!!

It’s simple, easy, quick, and has just a touch of red pepper flakes, to rev you up.

Lemon Squeeze
Place avocado in small bowl and squeeze with fresh lemon juice.
Salt & Red Pepper
Sprinkle in salt and red pepper flakes to taste and mash.

Half an avocado, mashed with lemon juice, salt, and red pepper flakes, then spread on toast…..for me an english muffin. I prefer english muffins to toast. The perfect breakfast! or Lunch!


Spread on Muffin
Spread on english muffin or toast choice.


Avocados are full of vitamins, fiber, and healthy fats….a super food. With just around 225 calories the avocado toast ( calories can vary depending on your choice of bread) won’t break the calorie bank and will keep satisfied until lunch……speaking of lunch……….

Tikka Masala Pizza

So, when I make dishes that are not familiar to me, I Google them so I know of what I speak …….

I found Tikka Masala to be an interesting story, why you ask??? It was created by accident……sorta how I cook!

The story goes that a Bangladeshi chef served a dish of traditional Chicken Tikka only to be asked by a British diner, “Where’s the gravy?” The miffed chef tossed in can of creamy tomato soup and spices and responded, “You want gravy? I’ll give you gravy!” The results were spectacular and the Indian/British Chicken Tikka Masala dish was born. Continue reading “Tikka Masala Naan Pizza”

The time has come for a return to salads! Don’t worry I still have lots of carb laden and sugar heavy recipes in reserve, but sometimes the body says enough is enough.

Tim and I were talking about salads and what we might put on one. We both love “Cuties” ………you know, the little Clementines….easy to peel, in the box or bag with the smiley little orange face…..so cuties had to be in the salad. Continue reading “Oriental Shrimp Salad”
