So we're back from the mountains and they were as beautiful as always. We are pretty fortunate to live close enough that we can just pop out there for a day or two and it’s really only about an hours drive. But now that we're home it means back to routine and reality. And also the official start of no meat January! The plan is not for us to go full vegan, just not cook any meat and see how we feel. So avocado toast really just seemed like a great place to start!

So I know avocado toast has a bad wrap, you know, if you order it in a restaurant you might as well plan to never buy a house because it’s so expensive. So I guess you might as well just make it at home and have the best of both worlds right!

I have actually found very few places that make avocado toast the way I like it. I don’t understand why you would just put slices of avocado on a piece of bread, I mean mash those little beauty’s up and season them, I mean I like avocados, but I guess not that much.

For me, the best part of avocado toast is that you can satisfy so many people with an assortment of toppings, or, just use up whatever is in your fridge. My personal opinion is just keeping the ingredients fresh and you really can’t go wrong.
