It’s Friday, and I’ve declared Friday, the “Something Simple” Day. It is also the last day of our SUMMER BLOW-OUT week. How have you liked it? Please post comments. I really, really like the comments. And we have about 4. I’m looking for 5, do I see 5…..
OK, onto the simple stuff. AVOCADOS!!! I loooooove avocados. I have been known to eat them out of their shells with a spoon. Like ice cream. But this is even better:
1 – 2 avocados (depending on size).
Red wine vinegar (to taste)
Olive oil (a good pour)
Lemon juice (freshly squeezed from 1 lemon)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Cilantro (a handful, chopped)
1 French or Italian baguette, cut in small slices (if you’re being fancy you can do them on an angle).
What to do:
Dice the avocado into cubes (small ones) and place in a pretty bowl. Pretty bowls are important. Drizzle with olive oil, and give it a splash of red wine vinegar. Squeeeeeeze in your lemon juices (I like to cut my lemons in half and then use a fork stuck in the open end of the lemon to help me get more juice). Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro. Make sure and taste it, you may want to add more salt or lemon juice or whatevs. Give it all a GOOD mix. With a fork.
Meanwhile, toast your slices of bread. I often use my broiler for this, but i am notorious at burning the bread when I do. So keep watch, that broiler toasts things fast. Like lightning fast.
Pile the avocado mixture on your perfectly (I’m assuming) toasted bread slices. Serve. Makes a great appetizer. Or snack. Or spackle paste.
