Avocado Toast with Fried Eggs
and butterhead salad with pears / pecans / blue cheese
Creamy avocados and toasted bread have become a ubiquitous pairing that is great at breakfast, lunch or dinner. The possibility for additional toppings are limitless (really!), but we're keeping this one simple with a fried egg for a protein-rich vegetarian dinner.
