Two more days left of school for the boys. We can do this! Max just asked me to make a marble pound cake for his teacher. Ya gotta love the last minute requests. I guess I know what I'm doing today! It's a good think I love being in the kitchen. I have a feeling though that this is a slight ploy for me to make one for the house too. I can never send things out without having a tester too. So, today is a cake day.
Sorry about the food photography right now. It's not good at all. I'm trying to figure out this point and shoot camera. I like some of the shots is takes, but I can't figure the light out. It seems to pull light in, which you would think would be good, but it's not working for food. These tomatoes are incredible in person, but the camera really grabs the red.
This meal totally brightened my morning though!
Two over easy eggs (I put a lid on the skillet so I don't have to turn them over),
with fresh spinach
over toasted socca
...oh and hot sauce (I almost forgot)!
You know what would make this that much better...
Well, for everyone except me...I wish I liked the stuff (bet you didn't see that one coming), but I just don't. It looks and smells so good, but the texture and flavor just gross me out. The boys love it though!
Nobody understands why I don't like avocados. I get that question all the time (Alisa
I'm pointing at you two). With this combination, how can you not like it? Right? What is wrong with me?
(makes about 3 cups)
2 avocados, peeled and mashed
1 cup diced tomato
2 TBSP scallions, sliced
1 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper
Mix everything together until combined.
Is there a food that you should like, but just don't? Please tell me I'm not alone in this!
