Still in the throes of the ever-present job search, I lucked out and got to apartment-sit for my brother in Brooklyn while he’s off frolicking in Bali.
So what is one 20-something to do while in the hipster jungle of Park Slope for two weeks?
Eat lots of avocado toast.
While not relegated to the simple dish, I will say I’ve become a bit of a master at making it work for me. Not to mention that I would like to prove that I SO INVENTED avocado toast before it was cool– back when I was vegan and pretty much literally had nothing else to eat.
That’s right everyone, I’ve been rocking the avocado toast for 144 weeks now, before it even became cool to smash it on top with a fork… so basically you could say I’ve become a master.
My favorite #basic upgrades I’ve been using lately:
- For when you need a little spice: Sriracha and sliced radishes with crushed red pepper
- For everyday: a GENEROUS sprinkle of amazing French sea salt
- For warding off the vampires: approx. 1 million pounds of sprinkled garlic powder (or if you’re feeling very fancy: roast actual garlic in a bit of olive oil, pour right on top, mmm)
- For some added protein: top with a fried (or scrambled) egg, or some crumbled tempeh
Happy eating, followers!
