egg, basil & avocado sandwich.

after a long day of work, some days it's hard for me to find the motivation to make dinner.  especially for one.  i generally try to cook something, freeze half and eat the rest for the remainder of the week.  this way, come the final week of the month, i can live off the meals i have stashed in the freezer.

most nights, if i haven't thought ahead and planned what's for dinner, i spend at least 20 minutes opening all the cupboards and the fridge hoping someone answered my prayers and made me dinner while i was working.  it's hasn't happened yet- but, i'm optimistic.

so on those particularly difficult nights, i'm always so proud of myself when i come up with something both (semi) healthy and delicious.  this was one of those nights.
egg sandwich.
makes 1 sandwich

2 pieces of thick artisan bread, toasted
1 egg
cheese (optional)
5 basil leaves
1/2 fresh tomato
1/2 avocado
salt & pepper to taste

toast the bread.  if you decide to use cheese, put it on the toast while it's warm so it melts slightly.  cook the egg (i prefer mine over easy with a well done center).  place the cooked egg on top of the warm bread and add spinach, basil leaves, tomato & avocado.  season to taste.


easy-peasy and an oh-so-delicious dinner for one (or two!).
