D E L I C I O U S!!!
My favorite food since I was a kid!!!
Home grown, from vine to table… makes my mouth water!!!
I love this topic, as I thought about it I realized that one of my prized material possessions is my kitchen! I designed it and chose the materials, laid out the floor plan, shopped for the appliances, tile, cupboards, and paint. I wanted to share a before and after photo… to give you an idea of what I lived with for many years and what I got to help maifest with the help of my husband and our sub contractors, of course:
This was how it looked when we bought it and I cooked some pretty mean meals in this one for over eight years!
And now… ta da!
This is mine! I love to cook! I feel blessed to have a home based kitchen where I can see the big screen tv when football games are on, with my husband. We are huge NFL fans and watch Red Zone every Sunday… all day long. So my kitchen brings me joy, and allows me to prepare healthy meals for my husband and friends. There is always a place to rest and nourish here. I am happy to share it with you all. The joy of cooking is the joy of living… so of course I am Happy, Healthy and In Love!!!!

Cat Cora’s recipe Ingredients
3 large firm avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
11/ 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar
1/ 4 cup apricot preserves
1/ 3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 cups chopped iceberg, romaine, or butter leaf lettuce
1 cup diced tomato
1 cup drained, diced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
2 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled, whites and yolks coarsely chopped separately
6 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/ 2 cup crumbled blue cheese
To grill the avocados: Preheat a gas grill on medium-high heat or light a charcoal grill.
Brush or spray the avocados evenly with the olive oil and season them with salt and pepper to taste. Grill the avocado halves just until grill marks form, 2 to 3 minutes. With a spatula, carefully turn the halves and cook for a few minutes more, until marks appear on the other side. Remove to a side dish and sprinkle lime juice over each half. Cool the avocados to room temperature or refrigerate until you’re ready to assemble the salad.
For the dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, apricot preserves, olive oil, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste.
to assemble the salad: In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with the dressing. Transfer the dressed lettuce to a large platter. Carefully cut the grilled avocados on the bias into thick slices and place them down the center of the salad. In a small bowl, mix the fresh and sun-dried tomatoes together. Spoon the yolks, whites, bacon, tomatoes, and cheese around the avocado. Serve.
