avocado and tomatillo salsa

22 ways with avocado toast {flavours}

It was a weekend up north. A weekend drenched in sunshine, crisp fresh air, lazy relaxation. A weekend piled high with magazines, brisk walks and glasses of Sancerre. In short, a weekend of yummy, easy meals at unconventional times of day. 

How do you feed people on just such a weekend, you ask? Two words: avocado toast. Avocado toast for late breakfast or early lunch. Pre-nap avocado toast at 3 pm and another post-nap round at 5. Avocado toast for anyone who doesn’t feel like eating a real dinner and, oh ya, avocado toast with a nightcap when it’s time to send everyone off to their fluffy-duvet beds. This one crazy-simple dish can do it all.

Of course if you’re going to subsist on avocado toast alone, you might want to know how to make more than one kind. So how about 22? Yup, I like 22 kinds. 22 feels right. Of course you could probably come up with 202 without too much sweat. But maybe that’s a little excessive. For a Monday. So just 22 for now:
