Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Kevin is half Irish, so I consider myself close enough. This morning, I realized that I don’t really own any green articles of clothing. After some digging, I finally remembered my green J. Crew Bermuda shorts.
Today has already been full of green. We met with a potential florist, which was really fun. We still have to meet with one more, but I’m really liking how our vision is coming along.
My breakfast this morning was a Pinterest-inspired green treat. I saw photos of these floating around and decided to try to recreate it without following any sort of recipe. How hard could it be?
Eggs in avocado baskets
- 1 avocado, sliced in half lengthwise, pit removed
- 2 medium eggs (I used jumbo and had some excess whites leftover)
- Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. With a sharp knife, shave off a piece of avocado from the back side of each half, so it has a flat surface to balance on. This way it won’t roll everywhere. Place on a small baking sheet.
Take a spoon, and hollow out a larger area around where the pit was. Crack one egg in each hollowed out avocado. Crack salt and pepper over the top. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, depending on how runny you like your eggs.
Avocado and egg in one of my favorite combinations, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with this recipe. And I love how simple it was to make. Parko had an early morning vet visit, so I ate breakfast pretty late, which resulted in a mid-afternoon snack instead of lunch.
I sautéed two handfuls of baby spinach and some baby asparagus with olive oil, salt and garlic powder then topped it with parmesan cheese. Perfect for my green day!
Hopefully the trend will continue tonight with some green beer. I hope you have a great, green day!
How are you celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day?
