Farm Girl Can Eat-avocado egg sandwich

We have all been there, we step away from a group at a gathering, then return just in time to hear how they describe you to others.  Sometimes this can be a concern, or illuminating, and often both.  That is the case with how often, in my absence, I am described as a “large eater”  a “ferocious eater,” and even compared to a boa constrictor in my ability to consume pounds of food in one sitting, then simply slink away to digest.  Just as frequently, I am asked the simple question, “how? or better yet, “why?”  I think it is a one-two combination of genetics and activity level.  I do not do well at a desk, though I am there right now.  I am only content to be here at a desk because I have just eaten my farm girl seasonal favorite…avocado and fried egg sandwich on toast.  It is simple enough to make, and it should serve two, though, I eat the whole thing.  Each of these items except for the bread and mayo were gathered on site thanks to the hens, the trees and the garden. So here goes big eaters, I know who you are.  Be proud, and eat well.

1/2 of a large avocado

two fried eggs

1 chilli pepper chopped

the juice of 1/2 of a fresh lime squeezed all over

mayo, salt and pepper to taste

2 slices of toasted bread

Team Downey Sourced all Things Hawaii

Heart is skipping a beat or two at this image of Robert Downey Jr and my Thai Rai Kaw Tok heirloom squash. They both look great! Mr and Mrs Downey, Chef Charles Voudouris, and the entire Team Downey posse made a noble effort to source all that was local, ethically produced, and sustainably grown.

Farmer hat off to you all! Mahalo nui loa.

Hawaii farmers appreciate your efforts!
