Happy Wednesday! The time goes by so fast again – though especially this week it’s been super busy. I am running from meeting to meeting on a daily basis and tomorrow till Friday I’ll be in Geneva for meetings. I have meetings planned all day tomorrow, though a lovely dinner in the evening that I am quite looking forward to. I’ll then sleep over at my best friends place, whom I still haven’t visited there – shame! Now it’s last minute because she will be moving in with her boyfriend in March – so cute, so cool! Then Friday I will be exploring the city with a friend – really excited about that one as well. He knows Geneva much better than me, so will be able to show me around a bit. I would bet though that I will be getting stuck at some Café, if the weather continues to be snowy and cold. Some calm time after all these meetings is always a good idea, though I’m afraid my inbox will be packed everytime I check it.
Now, here’s another post to what I like calling: Eating in Style. My obsession with avocado and all one can do with it still has not ended. Tonight I made dinner for dad and myself: avocado-egg topped off with smoked salmon, salade and apple pieces as well as slices (for decoration purposes, of course). He is leaving again tomorrow evening, so I thought I would treat him with an extra “pretty” dinner – and myself!
The avocado-egg mixture is not a new recipe, and to be honest one of the most simple things to do. It takes absolutely no time whatsoever, yet is absolutely delicious – I have made it previously so you can find it here. Recently I have not only been obsessed with avocados but also with salades again. I ate salades almost daily in summer – I don’t know, but due to the weather it seemed to fit perfectly. With the start of autumn and therefore the cooler temperatures I felt as if I wanted warm dinners and switched over to soups and vegetables mostly (given that I have chicken or other meat almost for every lunch – big, big meat lover here!). Since the beginning of the year however, I have gotten the need for salade again. It might be because of the daily chicken and vegetables for lunch (during the week), so I enjoy something lighter and cooler in the evening. And there are so many variations one can make with salades!
I love having a little fruit with it – I always have the feeling it gives me the right amount of vitamins for a little boost towards the evening and for my body to use during the night. For these two plates I used one apple. I try including proteins every evening too: Here I added 2 eggs into the avocado-egg mixture and half an egg on the salade for both plates. On other nights I sometimes snack on a few almonds after dinner. And salmon – well, I love salmon in general and since I was super hungry after work I decided to treat us with a rather large dinner tonight. Top it off with some olive oil and vinegar et voila: Dinner is ready!
Now I’ll start packing my small suitcase for Geneva, might need to write one or two more emails for work, prepare my Chia-pudding for breakfast and then I’ll try getting an early nights sleep. I haven’t been sleeping all too well the past nights – thoughts kept me up a lot, however tomorrow I need to be in the car by 7am. Therefore I should probably awaken at around 6am – way too early for my taste! I hope you’re all having a great evening. xo
Sorry if the quality isn’t at it’s best: I did these all with my iPhone, because I was too hungry to wait and take “professional” photos. :-)
