Guaca Everywhere

0 Permalink

You might have noticed that I love using avocado whenever I have the possibility. Be it as a substitute for butter, smashed on a piece of toast or simply in form of a good guacamole – you cannot go wrong with avocado. Imagine one would be allergic – is that even possible? I think it would be my nightmare come true. Either way; as you might remember I had a dinner with a few girls at my place a couple of weeks ago (before I started my travels). Speaking of travels – it feels so good being back at home with the loved ones!

For one of the starters I had made these eggs filled with guacamole. Simple, tasty, quick in the making – and super cute! For 8 halves you (obviously) need 4 eggs, round about one medium sized avocado, some salt, pepper, lemon juice, hot paprika pulver and perhaps a little onion. Once you have boiled the eggs and let them cool off, carefully cut them in half and take out the egg yolk. Add the yolk with the mashed avocado, add a little pepper, salt, the juice of half a lemon, and if you like, a small onion (cut into small pieces). Mash up the whole thing and add whatever ingredient you feel is needed to making it taste as good as you can. Carefully fill the egg-white halves and sprinkle a little paprika pulver on top – eh voila; off you go and present it to your guests.

I love making this little treat as a snack on the side or even as a topper for a good green salad. Nevertheless, don’t underestimate the power of an egg-avocado guacamole – it is SO filling. My friends and I snacked on these together with the homemade sweet potatoe and pumpkin/hokkaido chips (recipe here) and were basically full. Going over to the main meal was already a heavy task given we were so full – and we actually never made it to the dessert (which got eaten a day later). I’ll present the two courses to you shortly, too – and will also post a couple more footage from my trip.

Today and tomorrow is mostly office and admin work. There is so much to catch up on and so many emails to go through. Thursday I’ll be leaving to Geneva for a night, enjoying a lovely (business) dinner event and going to some meetings. I love these kinds of dinners – they have them every couple of weeks in different cities – and they are absolutely great for networking within the industry. I may have time to write another post on the train so do stay tuned!

Happy Sunday! Another week has gone by and it went waaay too fast! I am currently in Hamburg though thought I would update you with a short post. I’ve been seeing my uncle and his girlfriend, my great-grandmother (whom is already 96!), and some of my closest friends. Tomorrow will be my last day and I will stroll around the city and meet up with a friend to catch up a bit. In the evening it will be time to say good-bye and until next time, Hamburg. As much as I love traveling – and, of course seeing my dearest ones – I love coming home as well. The week will be tough though. My studies start again as of Wednesday, I have several meetings and tasks to finish off at work, we have the streetparade coming up on Saturday in Zurich (big, big party!), and I am starting a personal project on Sunday for the upcoming weeks.

I also painted last week quite a bit and shared a few previews on snapchat already. I am always super unsure about my own art – do I like it, or not? Is it something I should share or rather keep in private? What are your thoughts – would you be interested?

The picture, by the way, is of a dinner I made last week before I flew off to Hamburg. I haven’t cooked in forever – as I am almost always out for lunch or dinner and barely ever home. That is about to change, though, as I am planning to slow down on the eating-out a bit over the next weeks. That is, until October – because then I will be on travels almost the whole month through. Super excited about the trips, though. So you’ll definitely be seeing more about those soon! xo
