Hello, pretty pretty fuchsia (can you see it? it’s under all the green!)

Andrew seems to hate my long recipe titles. He’s all like, why do you have to include all the ingredients in the recipe title?!

Well, because I do.  I like long recipe titles.  They’re clear and tell you exactly what you’re getting.  Ain’t no one got time for the vague-ness of a recipe title like, avocado toast.  Gimme DETAILS!!

So last Friday.

I woke up ready for a typical get-blog-work-done Friday + I had a fun lunch date planned with my mom + my best friend + her baby + my best friend’s mom. It was gonna be such a great day.

Around 7:15am I was laying in bed planning my day.  I knew first I wanted to get Friday’s blog post up, but then somewhere in my subconscious God was yelling, I think you’re forgetting something.  So I went through my work emails and realized that a training I was attending for work that I thought started on Saturday actually started that morning.  So I got out of bed with an, oh crap! and threw on pants and a shirt and headed towards the med center (and I grabbed breakfast…because priorities).  

I hate going to the med center.  

I have a lot of bad memories there (that’s a post is for another day…or a post for never) AND parking is always awful down there, which just adds to the dread of having to be in that area.

Phew.  So I made it down there on time, but that is my explanation for why no blog post happened on Friday…because I lack organization.

Sometimes I feel so weird.

I’m such a perfectionist that it’s almost paralyzing at times…like I procrastinate doing things because I know they’re not going to be perfect and so I just don’t get anything done.  I’m not sure how that applies to missing posting on Friday, but it’s just one of the many realizations I’ve had about myself lately.  Yay, sharing.

Let’s get into this recipe.  I was trying to think of ways to make avocado toast less basic and more exciting.  Then I was like, what can you do with bread to make it more exciting? You can 1) add nutella OR 2) you can french toast it.  SO I went for the french toast option, since nutella + avocados didn’t seem like a good combination.  

Unless it was like a nutella chocolate pudding made with avocados.  I think I could support that.

And most importantly, there’s goat cheese.  Ohhh, and cilantro.  I live in a cilantro-filled world.  It’s a dream, as is this toast.  And this isn’t just boring toast, it’s fancy toast.  

Make ya some.
