A quiet reminder that avocados are awesome.

For the record - I too love avocados. I'm going to use the two ripe ones that I have for burritos tonight.
Oh look, same shit, different day, even by the same people! I fail to be surprised.

The other day I made myself scrambled eggs with chopped avocado, sriracha, and roasted peanuts, and had some pineapple spears on the side. It was a little weird, but really good.

I've been using avocado a lot this week because I hate it when they go bad. Used some as topping on a Frito pie the other night, will probably use up the last on some guacamole to have with the bean dip I made before that goes off.

So here's a request from those of you old enough to distinctly remember 80's food (I was technically a 90's kid)- an 80's party is in the early planning stages and I'm trying to think of food that'd be obviously 80's (came out or was really popular during, etc.). I've come up with numerous drinks, but I'm a touch stumped for any 80's-specific party foods.

i think bazooka gum was pretty big then, right?
i found this link: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/Favor...s-m313913.aspx
it does get into the whole american prejudice of all of us being obese but after that it does actually have a few ideas (mostly candies though)

I just made some blancmange on a whim (it's literally just milk, sugar and cornflour with anything else you want to flavour it with so it only took a few minutes). It's setting in the fridge now.

I was going to make coffee flavoured blancmange and put it in everyone's mugs as an April Fools joke, but I decided I'd rather just have a lie-in instead.

BEHOLD. I AM MASTER OF CHEAP RAMEN.



the noodles came with a little packet of fish sauce, which is a little bit sweet and I think I'd leave it out next time. It also came with little green onions and chili powder. I added soy and memmi to the broth. I think the fish sauce is still just a little too sweet for me.

I added some finely shredded onion, button mushrooms, and left over Easter ham that I put under the broiler for a little bit. I also added some nori. The soft boiled eggs are kinda ugly looking so I waited to take two pictures :P


I just briefly marinated them in the fridge with a watered down sweetened soy sauce. I think the liquidy yolk makes the broth taste better and cuts through the fish paste/sauce sweetness.

Next time I am going to leave out the mushrooms (or just leave a few little slices in) and the onions. I don't think they're bringing anything super great into things. But it's not bad.

I don't even want to comment on my lunch, because nothing I ate today could even come close to the level of awesome which is in your meal lol
