Open-faced avocado and goat cheese sandwich. Eat and have your spirits lifted.
I've been having what my mom would call a boude week. ('Boude' is a cajun word which means 'to pout.') If you're unfamiliar with the term, it's more than just pouting really: it's when you are in that place where you don't like ANY of your clothes, your temper is super short, and you feel like you can't do anything right, even though in reality, you are super fantastic awesome sauce. I don't know if it's been the weather or what, but I've just felt a little off my game and bleh.
It's cyclical of course because you are in a crummy mood, so you don't feel like doing anything, so then you don't, and then you feel crummy because you didn't do anything. Sometimes I like to refer to this phenomenon as "being a lady" because it doesn't seem to plague men. Oh the bliss of being a dude and not putting unreasonable, emotional, expectations on yourself.
When I'm in that icky blah place, this dish will put a smile on my face. It doesn't fix everything because duh, it's just a sandwich, but it is a step in the right direction.
Open Faced Avocado and Goat Cheese Sandwich
1 tbsp goat cheese
1/4 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste
hot sauce, to taste
two pieces wheat bread
cherry tomatoes, halved
Mix first five ingredients together: can be done the day before. Top bread slices with avocado mixture and cherry tomatoes. Easier to make if the bread can be toasted, but just as yum regardless.
