I’m not at all surprised that your date went well. Just hearing the two of you talking on the phone while we were skyping… It was pretty obvious you had great chemistry, even before you met! I am so happy it turned out as great as I suspected it would be.
It’s pretty funny to me how we often go through the same things at the same time, even though there’s a whole ocean separating us. (Is it here that I can squeeze in that we’re also on the same cycle?) While you were on your date, I was hanging out with a guy too, only this one would probably be my parents’ worst nightmare. He looks like he’s done some serious prison time. A lesson in not judging a book by its cover, because he really is very sweet!
I don’t know about you, but when I fall in love, I completely lose my appetite. I remember you told me once that when shitty things happen, your appetite is the first to go. I’m the same when awesome things happen. This summer, with my ups and downs in romance, I’ve had to turn a lot to my fail proof no appetite recipe. Now I’m sharing it with you, just in case it comes in handy seeing that you’re dating again. (Yay!) And it has avocados in it. I know you love avocados.
Broccoli and avocado salad
This is what I normally use:
- Half a raw broccoli in pieces
- One avocado in cubes
- Two boiled eggs, sliced up (it’s fine if they’re a little soft in the middle)
- A handful of chopped toasted almonds
- A handful of raisins (this can be excluded)
Sometimes I also use:
- Cured ham, or
- Smoked salmon
For the dressing I use:
- One tablespoon of dijon mustard
- One tablespoon of honey
- Three or four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- Salt & pepper
Now all that’s left to do is to mix it all together and enjoy! I don’t know why, but no matter how much I struggle to eat, I can always get this down.
