It’s funny how things fall right back into their old patterns at home.
At school, I wake up with my to-do list already set. Wake up, eat breakfast, start problem set, class, lunch, more class, practice, dinner, more work, bed. While it is nice having a routine most of the time, I really do welcome the flexibility of being at home. No class to rush off to, no waiting for the bathroom, and best of all- breakfast doesn’t close at 9:45 am!
Of course, I have certain things planned out, such as my workouts and schoolwork which needs to be finished over break. Despite these couple of tasks, I was still able to wake up this morning and finish Love Actually in bed before getting up for breakfast at my leisure. Not a bad way to start off the morning, eh?
Do you like Pinterest? Well, I do. And I’ve pinned about a million recipes, and have probably actually made (and attempted) about 3 of them. Last night I was still a little hungry after dinner, and we had half of an avocado which needed to be used up (never ever let an avocado go to waste. They are sacred! 😉 ), and so naturally I turned to Pinterest!
Enter: baked avocado and egg!
My mom and I ended up splitting the avocado, and we both loved it! The yolk was still a little runny, but warm, and the egg whites were cooked enough to keep the yolk in place. I wasn’t really sure how much I would like warm avocado, but it ended up being a hit!
If this were served at a restaurant or cafe, I am fairly sure they would make bank selling them. 3 ingredients, protein, and healthy fat?! Talk about simple and healthy!
Baked Egg in Avocado
Serves 1 or 2
Prep time: <5 minutes
Bake time: 15 minutes
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Cut avocado in half length-wise and remove pit
- Crack an egg in the centre of each half. It will spill a bit over the sides. If you don’t want it to spill at all, scoop out some of the avocado to create a big enough hole for the egg. (This will take more baking time)
- Place avocado halves on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Halfway through (about 7 minutes in), scoop up the spilled egg, and replace it on top of the avocado. This step isn’t entirely necessary, but I tried it and it worked just fine.
- Remove avocados from oven after roughly 15 minutes. The skin of the avocado should be wrinkly but not burnt.
- Cool for a minute or two, and enjoy!
Yesterday I was able to sort out training for the rest of the week! Thank goodness, because although I do like the lack of routine at home, I can’t stand not having a workout and training routine. My training yesterday looked like this:
- 50 minute Sufferfest session with Ken
- 1.5 hours of squash drills and games
I was beat by the time I got home! So much so that after dinner, I couldn’t even sit and be sociable. I dumped by dishes by the dishwasher, grabbed my computer, and plopped down on the couch to watch Breaking Bad, and eventually drift off to sleep from 9-10 pm. Although this nap was glorious at the time, it did make it much harder to actually fall back asleep around midnight when I finally mustered the energy to move from the couch to my bed. Ah, sounds like winter break!
Well, I’ve just written my homework to-do list for the break, and I think it’s time I actually tackle some of it! Have a great Tuesday!
Do you like having a routine? Do you always follow it, or do you ever take breaks?
Do you ever try Pinterest recipes? Do they ever work out according to plan?
