Baked Avocado Fries(adapted from this recipe, which was adapted from that recipe, which was adapted.......)
¼ C all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs, beaten
1 ¼ C Italian Seasoned bread crumbs
2 perfectly ripe California Avocados, pitted, peeled and sliced into wedges
Dredge the avocado wedges in the flour (coat them real well,) dredge in beaten egg (coat them real well, again,) and then dredge them in the bread crumbs (you got the real well part, right?) Lay on a baking sheet (I rubbed a little bit of olive oil on my pan.) Sprinkle a little bit of salt over the wedges, and then lightly sprinkle olive oil over them (I placed my finger over the opening to "sprinkle" because I'm fancy like that. Haha.) Bake for about 15-20 minutes (Mine were almost burnt at 18 minutes.) Take them out of the oven. Eat them. I forgot to take pictures.
Even my children ate them. That is a miracle.
Have you ever watched the Food Network (or Cooking Channel) and they have those awesome videos of the food bubbling up in the hot oven? No?
My kitchen is one of the most well-used areas of our home. I spend a lot of time cooking, cleaning, baking, cleaning, hanging out, cleaning, playing games, cleaning, entertaining and more cleaning in my kitchen.
I read an article the other day about bloggers appearing to be perfect (sorry, I can't find it or I would link to it - it was a good article!) I know, I know. I even use the word in the title of my blog. I know I am not perfect. The title of my blog is about what I wish I was, what I am always seeking and what I love; it is my search for all things pretty, polished, and otherwise perfect. I've got a number of photographs that are far from pretty, my dishwasher could use a good polishing and look! My kitchen isn't perfect:
Did I mention I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.......cleaning?
