My Addiction to Avocado Toast
One thing that I have discovered during Quarantine is that people are taking up anything to keep them busy. My sister has been doing puzzles nonstop, my mom has gone on at least 4 walks a day, and my dad has been doing tons of work around the house. I feel like we have been latching onto these little things to pass the time and provide a distraction from the boredom.
This past week was Spring Break, so we did not have school. I didn’t have to wake up at a certain time and didn’t have a set schedule for my day. This provided me with lots of free time.
Some things that I have been doing to pass the time include cooking and watching TikTok. One day, my TikTok addiction met my cooking addiction when I was scrolling through TikTok and found a recipe for avocado toast. I’ve always liked avocado toast, but whenever I would try to make it at home, it just didn’t taste as good as it does in the restaurants.
So I decided to try this recipe. It was SO GOOD. Now, I can’t stop eating avocado toast. Over spring break I ate two pieces every single day.
I’ve found myself starting to look forward to it when I wake up in the morning (or afternoon if we don’t have school haha). But it is really nice because it gives me sort of a motivation to make a plan for the day. I feel that is very important during these times.
So back to the main point that I feel like I say in everyone of these entries: You have to really focus on the little things. Get excited about completing that puzzle, getting out of bed, cleaning your room, or making avocado toast. It makes the days that more exciting. Oh, and I’ll attach the avocado toast recipe so maybe someone else can enjoy it too.
1-2 slices of bread (depending on how much avocado spread you want on each slice)
Crushed Red pepper
- Mash or cut up avocado (whichever you prefer)
- Add a little bit of salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper
- Add a few drops of olive oil
- Mix together
- Place on bread
- If you want, add a poached egg:
- Boil a pot of water
- When water is to a boil, turn down the heat to medium and start to bring water to a simmer
- Add around 2 teaspoons of white vinegar into the water
- Swirl the water with a spoon and then crack the egg into there
- In about 4-7 minutes, the egg should rise towards the top of the pot
- Drain out the water and place the egg on the avocado toast! Add some extra salt and pepper and voila!
