Everything is Awkward right now, in flux - I am starting at the bottom, I learning to walk, I am the embodiment of every metaphor we have ever known and trotted out. I don't mind, though, because it means everything in my life is organized and clean because that is what I do when I am procrastinating. I decide to get everything else around, so that then I can stew in my own nerves and "What Ifs?" in a clean home, with some new sweatshirts because I've decided that the 'Lounge and Errand wear' category in my wardrobe needs an upgrade.
You heard every word I just said.
This is a great salad for those days when you have a lot to get done and you want to fuel up in a delicate, asthetically pleasing way. I ate it for breakfast, and I felt solidly secure in that and other choices for the rest of the morning. It is an interesting way to eat roasted vegetables, still felt firmly Spring-like, and if I'd had pepitas or the time to roast some pecans to scatter atop, I would have - do that! Seeds n' Nuts are great, unless they are trying to murder you.
I made this with a small yam, and some Brussels sprouts, but you could swap in Butternut squash. You could add bacon to it, that would be delicious. You could roast some zucchini instead of the sprouts. The avocado isn't hurting anyone, so I suggest you let it make the party one to remember. Some dried cranberries, if you like Candy Salads. Adapt. Adapt and be well. And do whatever it is you're convincing yourself can wait until tomorrow. Because it can't.
IT CAAAAAAAN'T, PA! It just CAN'T.
