For my first meal in my new apartment last night, I made a mango and avocado salad! I've seen recipes with herbs and salt and what not, but my cupboards are bare. MY salad just used three ingredients.
I tried peeling the mango with a peeler, but after I got this far, it got so messy and juicy that I just started digging at the mango with a knife. Whatever...it worked.
My avocado had those brown specks in parts of it, but I ate it anyway. Is that bad? MOM AM I GOING TO DIE???
I sliced a grid pattern in the half and then popped the pieces out with my thumb.
I couldn't get the damn pit out of the other half, so I just peeled it and made cubes from the outside instead.
Yay! So, the mango pieces are definitely not uniform. How the hell are you supposed to slice a mango anyway? It's so hard!
I also squeezed lime juice over it.
Side note: My soap smells awesome...it's Black Amethyst. Dad, I promise if you visit that I'll hide this soap and buy some boring non-scented crappy mccrap soap.
I forgot that I don't have silverware either, so I took a fork from my work stash in my car. And there you have it! My very first new-apartment-meal! (It tasted a lot better than it looks).
