Avocado Fries

Here’s something fun on a weekend.  The teenagers (my son and his girlfriend) have had this recipe for Avocado Fries stuck on the refrigerator for months.  Today we seemed to have all the ingredients, plus it was a glorious day and I was planning on grilling some chicken that had been marinating, so tonight was Avocado Fries night.

I hovered, but mostly they got the job done very well, plus made some salad.  I threw in the chicken hot off the grill and we had a terrific supper on a beautiful mid-April California evening.  Here’s the recipe – if you can’t read it, let me know and I’ll email it to you.  We didn’t have Panko so we substituted Progresso Italian breadcrumbs, oh, and by the way, there were only three of us and we scarfed the lot!!

Hope your evening was as good as ours, wherever you may be.

Practicing What You Preach

Yesterday was kinda hectic after a relatively calm and pretty enjoyable week.  As the day wore on I began to think I wasn’t going to get to my UBC blog.  The more I thought that thought, the more likely it would become reality.  Sure enough, at 11:59pm, which I swear is when I last glanced down at the clock on my computer, I let it go.

Earlier in the week I’d had a couple of conversations where I’d strongly recommended to a client/friend that she stop thinking and talking about all the bad things that MIGHT happen, because it changes the way you interact with the object of your concern and by doing so becomes exactly what you were afraid of.  It had already happened once and I reminded her of that.

Here was I, doing the same thing: thinking I wasn’t going to get to something, then spending so much time trapped in that thought, that the clock ran out :(
