Here I am in a it's not as bad as it looks scenario again.😅 I feel like I'm in this situation more often than not lately. Most of my meals are accompanied by a "taste it before you judge it" disclaimer lately because the presentation has been lacking.
We can all agree that it takes extra effort to make food appear as delicious as it tastes. And recently, I've been consumed by other projects and I just haven't dedicated the time to highlighting the appearance of my meals. And since you can't taste this amazing avocado chicken salad, you're going to just have to take my word for it that it's soooo much better than it looks. 😂
I feel like I've applied that motto to other areas of my life as well. Not just food. I have a tendency to downplay injuries with the justification that it's not as bad as it looks. That's also what I say when I want to downplay the minor scratches or dents in my car when I describe them to my husband.😅 When I bring home so many grocery bags that they don't fit on the kitchen counters. When I let a pot of pasta water boil over onto the stove because I wasn't paying attention. Or when I accidentally drive the tractor over a pile of rocks and into the stairs in the backyard. 🤪 Yes, that really did happen and I actually started explaining the situation to my better half with "it's really not as bad as it looks." 🚜 (He hasn't let me drive the tractor since that day. 🤣)
Clearly, I utter the phrase it's not as bad as it looks a lot.😅 In the case of this Avocado Chicken Salad - just don't judge it by it's appearance. If you're a guacamole fan - you will LOVE this chicken salad recipe.🥑 And bonus - the recipe makes more dressing than you will need for your salad so you can scoop up the leftover guacamole with chips.
