Why Did I Wait So Long?

by Courtney on October 10, 2013

Seriously? Why did I wait so long to try out this amazingly delicious combination that is a fried egg + smashed avocado?


I cooked this little gem up yesterday afternoon for my lunch and wow. Just…wow. I added a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder to my smashed avocado, fried up the egg, and served it on a toasted whole wheat sandwich thin. According to Instagram, I’m pretty late to the game on this one, since so many of you were raving about it already. I’m excited to try it out with some of the other ingredients you guys were telling me about too. Yum, yum!

Another yummy from yesterday came in the form of a delicious apple cider donut.


Last Friday, I mentioned that we were going to be going apple picking for Fall Festival but unfortunately, our little clan never made it to the apple orchard. Lucas had decided that day that he wanted to nap for basically forever (3 hours his first nap, 2-1/2 his second) and he wound up napping right though apple picking. We debated on waking him up, but since his naps are so rare, I knew he must have needed the sleep so we let it slide.

Luckily, my gal Sarah picked up some cider donuts for me (I had been waiting so long for them!) and I’ve been enjoying one every now and then this week. Just a quick, 15 seconds in the microwave and it’s just like it was fresh baked.

My last yummy from yesterday? Dinner. And when I tell you I could eat a meal like this basically everyday of my life, I’m not even kidding.


I marinated some chicken cutlets during the afternoon and we grilled them up along with some baked sweet potatoes, and a couple big ol’ tossed salads. So much color and variety…I love it!

This morning, I’m heading out for a few hours solo, to give Lucas a little one-on-one time with his new babysitter. I feel like I have a gazillion different emotions about that all, but I’ll get to that in another post. For now, it’s time for me to scoot!

Happy Thursday, friends! Smile

Smashed avocado is so popular here in Australia! I hadn’t put that combination together either before moving here, but you honestly can’t escape it. So good!

Good luck today! I can imagine it will be hard leaving Lucas but enjoy the time you get to yourself today. :)

Yummy apple cider donut! I want one.

I like to add hummus or pesto, sea salt and black pepper, and a few spinach leaves to the avocado + fried egg + toast combo…it’s so good!

Egg and avocado…hmmm I never would have thought to try that combination! Sounds good though! Hope you have a great Thursday!


9 Gracie October 10, 2013 at 9:19 am

Love egg + avocado combo! You should really try it with a soft boiled egg. One of my favorite brunch spots in NYC has the most simple yet delicious meal – whole grain toast with mashed avocado, topped with 2 soft boiled eggs, and siracha. It’s soooo good!

Avocado and egg is one of the BEST combos, especially when it is combined with bread…oh, and add some sea salt too and it is REALLY good!

The fried egg + avocado combo is one of my faves! Not to mention packed with healthy fats. ;) Glad you loved it!

Huge hugs today. I’m sure Lucas will do great!

I really just have to try out that egg and avocado combination … I’ve already tried it in a salad with hard-boiled eggs and cubed avocado, but now I want to make a WARM version of it. Perfect for fall!
Hoping all goes well with Lucas’s babysitter today … I can imagine you’re anxious about it, but I’m sure he’ll do well! Enjoy your “me” time today … any special plans?


14 Amanda @ .running with spoons. October 10, 2013 at 9:36 am

Eggs and avo make me weak in the knees. Seriously one of the best combos out there. And yours must be the 7th post I read today that included donuts — I think the universe is trying to tell me something ;)

Good luck with the babysitter!

Eggs and avocado is definitely an amazing combination! I like to scramble some eggs with sautéed diced onion, roasted red pepper and baby spinach, then top it with some avocado slices…amazing!

I have a love/hate relationship with eggs, but right now I am all about them. I’ve been doing hard boiled lately. Eggs and avocado were made for each other!

Lucas will do great at the sitter’s! I know no one can ever take care of your little one like you can, but he will be in great hands!

I still haven’t tried the fried egg with avocado but I see it all over the blog world! I need to jump on this band wagon.

Oh I love avocado on almost anything!! The egg combo is delicious! I also like a little tomato in there. Good luck with the new sitter. I’m sure things will go great! :)

That first time leaving them with a sitter is so hard, but I’m sure everyone will do great. Honestly, it’s amazing how babies will act different with Grandma or the sitter. So many times, I’d drop my daughter off with my sitter or Grandma, and I’d be worried because she would have been in such a cranky mood. I pick her up, and they tell me she was a perfect angel for them, lol.


25 Annette@FitnessPerks October 10, 2013 at 11:23 am

Mmm apple cider donut sounds super yumm!

I love simple dinners like that too–sweet potatoes make everything better ;)

Good luck today to you both!

I would never think to do eggs + avocado….that’s like an explosion of healthfulness ;)
I know, it’s hard leaving them with a sitter for the first time but it’s a GREAT thing for both you and Lucas! (Try to) Enjoy your time out – even if you’re just running errands alone! lol

I feel you! I could def eat a variation of that for dinner every night!! Also, I have started making egg burritos in the morning, and I recommend adding salsa to the mix with eggs and avocado. So delish!

Apparently, I’m even later later to the party. I eat eggs an avocado pretty much every day but never a fried egg + avocado. Where have I been? I’m going to need to pick up some GF bread next time I’m at the store so i can whip this bad boy up!

Apple Cider donuts may or may not be my favorite food in the entire world. When I lived down south in college that was what I missed more than anything.

Oh my gosh egg + avocado on toast is THE ultimate combo (after peanut butter and banana ;) ) So glad you’ve tried it! Now I need to try an apple cider donut.
That dinner does look amazing also!
