I am new to the world of avocado toast.  OMG Where has it been my entire life. It’s easy and quick.

Time

 5 minutes or less

Items

  • 2 sliced of Multigrain Bread (you want to avoid thin soft bread)
  • 1  small Avocado
  • Himalayan Salt 
  • Trader Joe’s EveryDay Seasoning or Substitute for your favorite seasoning. Anything except Seasoned Salt
  • Red Chili Flakes (They make all the difference in the world)

Instructions

  1. Cut a ripe avocado in half.
  2. Remove the seed.
  3. Scoop the flesh into a bowl.  (The green stuff inside of the skin)
  4. Add 1/2 of the seasoning.
  5. Mash the flesh of the avocado.  The flesh should not be completely smooth.
  6. Add remainder of the seasonings.  Season to taste.
  7. Toast the bread in a toaster or broiler.  I don’t have a toaster; therefore, I used my broiler.
  8. Spread the avocado on the toast.
  9. Sprinkle Red Chili Flakes to your liking.

Take a bite.  Enjoy

 

 

 

 

Updating Small Reach in Pantry with Flamingos

March 23, 2018 in Home / Home Goods

If you don’t know I purchased a new home in late October of 2018.  I had all these grandiose plans of updates I wanted to make immediately.  My pockets and plans didn’t match.

I love flamingos.  I don’t know why.  I just love them.

Pantry Dimensions

18” Length

72” Width

108” Height

Supplies

Drop Cloth

6” roller

1” paint brush

Paint

Decals

Level

Pencil

Painters Tape (optional)

Door Knobs from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074JM7H7F/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Level: Easy

Time: 1-4 hrs. depending on experience

I ordered the flamingos from CaliMomDesigns on Etsy.  Each flamingo is 6″ tall and approximately 3″ wide. The decals are sold by the sheet. There are 20 flamingo decals per sheet. I purchased a copper, pink and dark blue sheets.

I removed everything from my pantry.  I removed any marks on the walls with a Mr. Clean Eraser.  It works great on flat paint.

I didn’t know how to remove the wire shelving.  I wanted to keep it because the shelving because I wasn’t prepared to pay for a shelving new system. I had to paint around the wall attached pieces; a pain.

I painted my wall with Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel Ultra Pure White 3750.  I didn’t not like this paint.  My walls were flat off white; however, it took several coats to cover.  I let the paint dry 24 hours between coats.

I marked my spacing with a level. I placed the decals approximately 12″ apart horizontally and each row is about 4″ apart.
