Today is a sad day……we used the last of our asparagus….whah whah whah!!!
Fresh asparagus season only lasts a couple of weeks in new beds like ours. Hopefully when they are fully established we can get as much as 8 weeks. No matter the harvesting time, we enjoy it to the fullest.
For our last bunch, I wanted to make Tim creamed asparagus on toast. It is so yummy!! But alas, it is not the prettiest dish in town……my mission…..if I chose to accept it……. put a pretty face on creamed asparagus on 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.
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!
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……….
