Gluten Free Avocado Fries

I saw a recipe the other day for Avocado Fries, and I thought I would try to make them with my new chickpea flour.  My husband is doing low carb, and supposedly chickpea flour doesn't have a glycemic effect. We both though they were great! (and he still lost weight)



Directions: Cut one firm-ish avocado into fries. Mix one egg and a little milk together in a cup. Dunk the avocado pieces into the mixture and leave them for a few minutes. Mix about a cup of the chickpea flour with some coriander, pepper and salt. You can adjust the mixture or add any other spices you want. Drop the avocado pieces into the flour and coat them. Get your trusty skillet out, add some olive oil and let it get hot. Carefully place the fries in the oil and fry them for 2 minutes on each side. Pull them out and voilĂ ! Yummy!

Just had to share the treat my Valentine brought home!!



letterpress Valentine card from Pheasant Press

Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been collecting vintage Valentines for several years now and I just love decorating with them. This french door is where I put all my Christmas cards as they arrive. It looked so bare after I took them down this year, I decided to put my Valentines up to keep it cheerful.


My favorites are the ones with cowboys.


Notice my Cath Kidston candles. I love those polka dots!
