Classic Avocado Toast

This year I’m doing something I haven’t really done: I’m editing my wardrobe so I have room for new fall clothes. Who am I?! It kinda feels organized, slightly fancy and something Lucky Mag would tell you to do. I usually read these types of suggestions in magazines while I’m getting my nails done and feel all inspired to do it when I get home but never do. Other things usually end up being more exciting to me. But this year, I’m actually doing it!

Cleaning out my drawers has made me realize that I cannot own enough classic plain white t-shirts. I own a lot of ’em. And I love ’em all (minus the ones with food stains on them).

I feel like a classic avocado toast might be food version of a classic white t-shirt. It’s what you could eat every day and not tire of it. Refreshing, simple and so good! I love it.

I teamed up with LeafTV for one last video on my favorite snack EVER! I would include a recipe below but that’s kinda silly. You know what you’re doing when it comes to this.

Does the internet ever make you feel like you lead an unattractive life? Let’s blame Pinterest.

Pinterest makes me feel like my hair is really terrible.

And it makes me feel like my clothes are kind of meh.

My house looks nothing like this. Yeah, no swing in the living room. Also, how is everyone SO RICH on Pinterest?! Let’s have a convo about THAT.

The internet totally has the ability to make you feel like the awkward and friendless freshman on the first day of school. ANXIETY. Yea, the internet gives me anxiety sometimes. The internet isn’t real life. If I shared real real life on this blog, you probably wouldn’t read. Lots of procrastinating. Lots of checking email/answering email. Lots of bowls of cereal.

Most of my normal life is very un-Pinterest worthy, you know?! Yours probably is too. Let’s be friends!

Fried Avocado Tacos

Dinner

Today is a really good day. It’s beautiful out, the birds are chirping, dogs are everywhere looking adorable and you look particularly cute. You always look cute, but today you look extra cute. New jeans?

Thought so…

I’m in a really good mood. I mean, it is Friday. Heeeeyyyy Friday, HEY! But mainly it’s because avocados are so incredibly perfect that they make me giddy.

Have we met people that hate avocados? Not sure I’ve ever come across a person. Hope they don’t exist, honestly. (That’s kind of harsh of me, isn’t it?!)

Avocados are perfect all on their own. We know this. Avocados are also awesome fried, placed in between a tortillas and sprinkled with radishes and cotija cheese.

Let’s talk about it!

Mulitas

Dinner

My lady doctor gave me strict instruction that I need to start taking vitamins. I’ve put this off for a really long time because I’m a gigantic baby and suck at taking pills. I do that melodramatic thing where I fill up my mouth with water and then stick the pills in my mouth and then swallow. Sometimes I do like a little gag reflex thing…and then realize there’s no one around to feel sorry for me. Womp womp.

Anyway, I heard through a friend-of-a-friend that Trader Joe’s is the place to get those adult edible vitamins, so I went and she was right. And they’re not just “edible,” they’re deliciously edible! You mean I can take my daily vitamins in form of a gummi bear? Even though it was “candy,” I still expected it to be sort of disgusting. But whoa, before I knew it I ate, like, half the bottle. I’m sure this is awful, right? The bottle said take one…I took 10? Maybe 15?

I’m not sure what’s worse: too little vitamins, or too many. And I also did this on an empty stomach, but it was perfect timing because the batch of the carnitas that was on the stovetop was done, so I assembled two of these things and I felt a little better. Overly vitamized…but better!

Avocado Hummus

Appetizers, Snacks


This avocado hummus is delicious. And I know I say that a lot, but I really rilly like this one. It’s a good one!

In other related news, why are avocados so expensive? I get that they’re delicious, buttery, fatty (in a healthy way!), pretty, and again, delicious.

No but really…
