The Everything-You-Needed-in-Life Avo Toast

IMG_7421

This Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend is EVERYTHING! Literally though. It’s salty, savory and just plain fun. And it’s $1.99 at Trader Joe’s, which totally justifies buying it versus making it (but you can obviously still make it — check out Gimme Some Oven‘s version). I love this Everything Bagel Avocado Toast. I’ve honestly had this three days in a row. Maybe four . . . but who’s counting?

Staying “Toasty” in the Snow

IMG_0773.JPG

Yesterday was a good day; a very solid assortment of food kind of day. Despite the blizzard pummeling the Northeast, Boston was graced with a couple inches to still have the feel of winter without being overwhelming. (Btw, thank GOD Boston was spared. We had enough snow last year to last a decade.) I went to the gym yesterday morning, but was saving my big meal for brunch to go with my roommate and one of my best friends from college. I needed something satisfying, savory and that would hold me until we commenced for brunch. Cue the Basil Sriracha Avocado Toast. We had a successful meal at The Tip Tap Room in Beacon Hill. We sipped on mimosas, Blood Maries (just Perin) & bourbon cocktails (see pictures below). We sampled the Everything Bagel Breakfast Sandwich, the Smoked Cheddar & Corn Griddle Cakes with Bacon Maple Syrup (they tasted like cornbread pancakes — delish) and the Tip Tap Signature Omelet packed with brie, asparagus and shiitake mushrooms (pictured below). Given it was snowing and we wanted to stay warm, I also concocted some Blizzard Sangria. Think a quick and easy cranberry and citrus sangria. To put the icing on the cake, toss in a slice of Ernesto’s Caprese pizza for dinner in the North End. Sounds like a good Saturday, right?

The Easiest Eggs & Toast…Maybe Ever

Eggs in a Mug with Avocado Toast

After reading BuzzFeed’s “19 Breakfasts You Can Make In A Mug,” I wanted to test out their idea for eggs. Seemed simple enough. With it being so hot and muggy this summer, I haven’t been too inclined to make eggs and have the stovetop emitting so much heat. I was skeptical, but then again my Banana Bread in a Mug turned out just fine. Also surprising, but I’ve never made avocado toast before. I know, right? Who am I? It was beyond good. Seasoned with sea salt and red pepper flakes for a small kick, I’m seriously in love with avocado toast. I must have been living under a rock. The eggs in a mug turned out to be deliciously simple. I tossed in egg whites, chopped baby spinach and Parmesan. You can really add whatever you’d normally want in your omelet to have the perfect Eggs in a Mug with Avocado Toast. This truly was a 5 minute breakfast!
