Just a quick shameless shout out to our local Utah friends…Kiwi and Carrot is going LIVE! Tune in tomorrow (Thursday) to Fox 13’s “The Place” at 1:00 pm for a cooking demo about creative pizza-making! It will be delizioso…and probably awkwardly entertaining 😉 And now back to the blog…
So, technically, this isn’t really a recipe. Besides the balsamic reduction, there is no cooking whatsoever. Okay, so you toast the bread. But that’s it! The beauty of avocado toast is its simplicity.
I love simplicity. When we go to our cabin, we live simply. We don’t have a lot of stuff up there, cluttering our lives. It’s just the cabin: a bed, a basic kitchen and a warm blanket by the fire. So simple! When we come home from a weekend at the cabin, I honestly want to throw everything away in the house. Now, our house is pretty clean. I don’t like a lot of extra stuff. But the cabin is even more simple. No extras. No frills. No stuff. No distractions. No errands. No computer. Not even a TV. Being there cleanses the soul. Our minds and bodies need to de-clutter occasionally. I always come home from the cabin refreshed and calmed.
Avocado Toast 3 Ways is like that. A lowly piece of bread. A perfectly ripe avocado. And endless possibilities just waiting in the fridge! Open the door, pull out the first thing that catches your eye, and most likely, it will taste good on avocado toast! Drizzle on a little balsamic glaze and, well…you know our feelings about balsamic glaze. I don’t need to say any more. #elixiroflife.
Live simply. Throw away your old stuff. Do yoga. Be still. Listen to the silence. Pray. Breathe. Go on a walk. Eat avocado toast.
