I Ate the Whole Thing

The rain clouds moved in today! Aren’t they ominous? 8O

It was a perfectly lovely afternoon – I even got to go on a nice lunch time stroll with my husband – but around 4:00…they came. They interfered with my plans to go running after work. Hmph!

Thinking they had beaten me, I decided to forego exercise, at the time, in favor of a quick & easy Mexican feast – Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Guacamole!

Oh yes – this trifecta of lusciousness was on my mind all day and I couldn’t wait to dig in! I started with, arguably, the star of the plate – guacamole.

Guacamole

Serves 2 as an appetizer, or 1 hungry Iowa Girl.

Ingredients:

1 avocado

squeeze of lime juice

dash of garlic powder

salt & pepper

Directions:

1. Mash.

2. Devour!

I swear to you that you WILL lick the masher. You will! It’s a mathematical certainty! This guacamole is THAT good, and THAT easy. I scooped mine up with some salty, crunchy, bite-sized tortilla chips.

Bite sized is the only way to go, in my opinion. Full sized tortilla chips are so awkward, no?

Garlicky, buttery, creamy. I live for this guac!

The eggs weren’t so bad either. ;)

In the mix:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • hot sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • green onions
  • cottage cheese.

Whisk and scramble in a hot skillet on the stove top. Have you ever added cottage cheese to your eggs? They make them fluffy and cheesy. I had to wonder why I haven’t been adding cottage cheese to my eggs each and every time I make them?!

With a dallop of guac + fresh roma tomatoes = Heaven on earth.

What a meal! Quick, inexpensive and exploding with fresh flavors.

After cleaning up, I noticed that the clouds were pretty much in the same position as they were before dinner, so I paused and assessed the situation.

Do I exercise but risk getting caught in the rain? Or do I stay in, but risk feeling bad if it never comes? Not wanting to regret a wasted opportunity, coupled with the fact that I had just eaten an entire avocado, I hopped on my bike and raced down to my trail!

Four, quick miles later, I’m back. It was a great ride – MUCH better than yesterday’s! – but I’m covered in bugs. They were out in full force and were literally ping-ping-pinging off of me during my ride!

And I arrived home not a moment too soon, I think. The clouds are near black, and the birds are going crazy (don’t you love how birds start chirping like little mad people when they know rain is on the way?!)

To the shower!

Have a great evening!

Do you like thunderstorms?

I.Love.Thunderstorms. I love how the house gets really dark, I love the sound and smell of the rain, and I love sitting on the front porch watching it all come down!

I do remember being absolutely petrified of them growing up. 6 year old me thought they were the worst!

Morning! Kate Gosselin finally got kicked off Dancing with the Stars! I felt bad for her – she seemed genuinely upset – but she was just an awful dancer. I couldn’t watch her for many more episodes! I think Ethan or Nicole is going to win. What do you think? For…
