Blogging is my way of keeping track of all of the recipes that I've made. Browsing through my recipe index is way easier than leafing though a stack of magazines or an old cookbook to find a specific recipe. Sure, it takes a little time to get my recipes up on the website but to be completely honest, when I'm trying to formulate a menu plan - it's like my brain goes blank. I know that I have thousands of recipes in my repertoire but I can't seem to think of any of them when I need to. Browsing through my website is the most efficient means of jogging my brain.
I suffer from serious brain amnesia when it comes to generating food menus. Apparently, I need visual reminders of all of the food that I've made in the past to help me create catering menus and even a meal plan for my own family. (And you thought my website was for all of you.) ;)
Some recipes are so simple that they're really not even worthy of a blog post. Nobody needs instructions on how to bake a sweet potato, boil an egg or assemble a turkey sandwich but I've literally blogged ALL of those things.
It might seem like a recipe for avocado toast is totally unnecessary but if I don't blog it and add it to my recipe index, there's no chance of me ever remembering to make it again and it's just too good to NOT make over and over again. I love this simple little appetizer and I definitely want repeat this recipe.
Caprese Avocado Toast
2 ripe avocados
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
4 slices bread, toasted
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced and cut into pieces, to fit the bread
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling
Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
I can't think of a better way to kick off our summer season than with this delicious little treat. I've literally eaten this caprese avocado toast for breakfast, as a snack, for lunch, as an appetizer and for dinner in the past two weeks. I tried to limit my intake to no more than once per day but I can't promise that they're weren't days when I made more than one caprese avocado toast. They really are delicious.
