A Healthy Indulgence (maybe, maybe not)

Truth be told? I don’t really live to eat, though I do sometimes overindulge in eating things I love. Freshly sliced avocado on toasted bread is my latest indulgence. I eat this either for lunch or as a late afternoon snack almost every other day. The best part is that it takes no effort to fix a sandwich like this. After I finish layering the bread with avocado, I sometimes add sliced red onions and feta cheese for that bit of oomph. Other extras like a pinch of pepper and a dash of lemon juice and olive oil make it irresistible. Now I shouldn’t forget to say how gorgeous it looks when I set it on a tray lined with wax paper. Wouldn’t you agree?

(inspiration for the recipe format came from an article on Yvette Van Boven in nytimes)

    Avocado, very nutritious, with or with bread. I’ll take the feta anytime. I’ll try it since I have four in stock right now. Yummy.
