Sick Day & Avocado Toast Recipe
I've been sick a lot this past year. Nothing serious, but certainly more colds and sore throats than I'm used to.
Right now, I've got a middle of the road cold. Just bad enough to keep me out of work but I'm not running a worryingly high fever or having any stomach issues.
Yesterday I slept until noon (unthinkable) and then fell asleep again around 2 while watching Treasure Planet (thank you Netflix) and didn't wake up again until 8pm.
Today I was a little less sleepy, and actually managed to eat a light meal.
I made myself some delicious avocado toast with a crisp Gala apple.
1 slice of good bread
TT chili pepper flakes
TT freshly ground black pepper
TT sea salt
TT lemon juice
*TT = To taste
Toast your bread fairly dark so it has a good crunch to it.
Scoop the avocado onto the toast and mush it down with a fork
Grind black pepper over it
Sprinkle flakes and salt over toast
Squirt some lemon juice on top!
It's pretty much the easiest thing ever. Way healthier than toast with butter and jam, and much more filling! I bet it would be even better with a little bit of melted sharp cheddar on top... hmmmm there goes the health factor.
On sick days I like to catch up on reading food blogs and TV shows.
My dad responds to me feeling under the weather by serving me tea by the gallon.
He's from England so he can't help himself. If something is wrong, you get tea.
P.S. I had a pretty nice dream this afternoon involving a hot shower and Colton Haynes.
Maybe being sick isn't so bad after all!
P.S. If you want to see more of this hot actor (who wouldn't) I recommend watching Teen Wolf and Arrow!
