Edamame & Avocado Spread
You know you have kids when the way you think about your cat changes.
Case in point. About 10 years ago one of my cats went missing for a few days. I was out night and day calling for that little beast. Beat me if you must but our cats are inside/outside cats. About a week after the kitty went missing I found Izo (that's his name) wandering up to our beach apartment barely able to hold himself up.
We took Izo to the vet and little man had done so much damage to his legs he required orthopedic kitty surgery that set our broke butt’s in debt to the tune of 3,ooo dollars. We took out credit and didn’t wink an eye over it.
Once surgery was over we made sure to take the best care of him, tuna, lounging, ear rubbing. Anything to make little dude happy
Fast forward to now (1 kid later) and I just have to list out the things Izo does that make me crazy.
First thing, wants feed. Seriously dude, home those hunting skills because obviously opening up a can of food has become too much of a hardship to me. Not to mention, cat food is stanky. Not to mention, how the hedge fund does it end up all over the floor....in another room??
Second thing, this cat wants to come in…and then go out? Sometimes he wants to do this in a very short time period. Obviously I being such a busy woman cannot be made to expend extra energy on things such as…opening a door or closing one. On the couch with the remote is where I choose to burn extra calories
Third thing, cat wants water. No cat can not drink out of bowl. Being the prince he is, only fresh tap water will do…especially fresh tap water when you want to brush your teeth.
Fourth thing, cat want some lovin. Now this would be OK if kitty didn’t demand it by climbing onto my chest at 2am in the morning. Izo, mom does not keep those sort of hours anymore.
Also one little pet down of a cat = 2 trips around the house with your Dyson.
How are they not bald after the 16 million hairs they lose everyday?
Delightfully borrowed/altered from HERE
1 Avocado, diced
¾ cup Edamame
2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tbs lime juice
¼ cup parsley
1 clove garlic
1 tsp Coriander
Toss all ingredients into your food processor and blend, brain surgery I tell you. I had this spread on toasted bread with some buffalo chicken and Havarti. NOM to the second power.
Bright and refreshing - sure to wake up an everyday sandwich.
Now excuse me while I kick a cat....JOKING!
