I just invented a new recipe, i call it liver and onions. See you take calfs liver, salt and pepper it them braise it in buttermilk for about an hour. While that cooks you saute some onions and when the liver is done, you finish it all in a hot pan to give a little color to the liver.

Well, sure, if one makes their own avocado toast for 130 years instead of buying 'artisanal,' one could -- theoretically -- save enough for a down payment on a median-priced San Francisco house condo co-op TIC cardboard box.

I just invented a new recipe, rip the intestines out of a pig, throw the rest of the pig into a wood chipper and stuff the results into the intestines. Serve on a bun with ketchup.

There are still songs that I hear and mentally anticipate the fade...CLUNK! in the middle.

I hate that word, "artisanal", as if the use of it means the item it describes is quality. When in reality, the word that should be used is "different". The use of artisanal usually means you will be overcharged for something that is of minimal benefit.

It shows a poor understanding of historical economics if you think housing was affordable in 1885

Are you going to be the one to deny the shrimp his cocktail? His life is nasty, brutish, and short. He deserves a brief respite.

Waitaminute... avocado toast is simply avocado spread on toast? That's it? Why is that a big deal?
 
2017-07-26 03:30:23 AM  
Toast, hmm. I'd rather have my avocado on a salad, or as guac with tortilla chips if necessary.

Hell, a whole fresh avocado with a little salt is a real treat if it's properly ripe.

I call BS. No one but the wealthy can afford to buy houses in San Francisco. If San Franciscans move to Ohio, maybe they can afford to buy houses.

The rest of you can have my share of the avocados, I find them repellent. The one food from my youth I wish I could have again is abalone. The memory of it has stayed with me these many years.

An old person saw a young person eat it. The old person was enraged and confused by this brazen display of mundane eating habits. Now, the sort of person with audible venom in their tone when they say "millennial" hates avocado toast.

These aren't smart people.

"Artisanal" is what they used to call "gourmet" back in the 80's.  That word kinda lost its value when they started labeling everything gourmet, including Hot Pockets.  We're sort of in that phase where nobody's really sure exactly what artisanal means, but once the industry realizes that it's an empty term, we will have artisanal Hot Pockets.

Mix the avocado with salt, fresh ground pepper, and curry.  Spread on toast and place an egg over easy on top.  NOM.
