One time on the subway I met a man who loved Avocados. “You can do anything you’d like with em. “You can cook ’em, you can squash ’em, you can put ’em on a sub, or you can eat
it by it self. It’s nature’s natural butter. It’s good on everything,” he took his sunglasses off and winked at me. He thought I was looking at his bag of avocados. Sitting next to him, I nodded in polite agreement trying hard to give the allotted amount of eye contact that is expected from a total stranger.
Meanwhile, I had never tasted an avocado in my life. Guacamole was green and gooey and something I had no interest in trying in my picky unadventurous days. For a few days I worked at this small cafe in the village called Everything Tea or something hip like that. It was the first time I saw an avocado peeled and delicately cut. While alone with the produce and the mounds of freshly cut avocado, I snuck a piece and felt that smooth gooey goodness. I knew what that crazy avocado man meant.
I am not ashamed to admit that prior to this meal, I watched a YouTube video on how to cut an avocado, because although I enjoy them I have never cooked with them until now.
This meal didn’t take much time to cook up, as you read this blog you’ll notice I am in love with eggs and their compliments to any meal, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They literally go with anything. So here is my low calorie fun lunch.
AVOCADO & EGG QUESADILLA
