It’s been swell seeing monstrous displays of avocados every time I walk in a grocery store. Long may it last but I know by fall, the displays will shrink and I’ll have to make do with the smaller fruit. The California avocado season will be complete and I’ll be sad.

Creamy avocado with a soft runny egg on top

But until then I can still make crazy easy recipes like this one. Sliced creamy avocado with a runny egg on top and seasoned with some salt, black pepper and fresh thyme from the garden. I couldn’t resist the Sriracha squiggle because this completes my perfect breakfast, well almost. All that’s missing is a slice of ultra-seeded toast. Lately I’ve been waking up to Dave’s Killer Bread. It’s packed with all kinds of crunchiness and although it can be a tad pricier than regular bread, the taste makes it worth it. Check out their history, it’s a really cool story.

Who needs plates when you can bake the egg inside the avocado, yay for no clean up!

This avocado face mask is amazing! Though I think I’d stand in front of the mirror trying to lick myself.
