Avocado Feta Salsa

Avocado Feta Salsa 1

 

I remember thinking as a kid, that I wish I never had to eat or sleep.  It just killed me when I had to stop playing to do something silly like eat! And you  know kid time is so much longer than adult time.  One night’s sleep took an eternity!  Think of all the drama in Barbie’s life I could create if I never had to stop playing!!!!

I thought about this the other day when I called my own kids to eat and I was greeted with crickets chirping.  No one came.  I called again, nothing, zilch, nada.  Not even a “be there in second”.  Nope just an enormous, chasm of silence.  My daughter was reading, my son was watching Lego videos and my little one was playing.   If I weren’t a mother, all this ignoring would be giving me a complex!  But I understood.  All three kids were so engrossed in what they were doing and the thought of eating just wasn’t important enough to tear them away.

Adults just don’t think this way.   We enjoy our food and our meals so much than our pint-sized counterparts.  Sometimes where and what we are eating is literally the highlight of our day.  We have weekly meal plans,  weekend dining plans, we have friends over to share a meal.  It’s all about food.  Of course, being a food blogger, I think about food A LOT!   And I don’t know about you, but each night I so look forward to that moment that I fluff out my pillow, turn out the light,  snuggle with my dog and smile while I wait for sweet, sweet slumber to take over.    I love sleep.   Can’t wait to sleep in on the weekends!   The thing is,  as we age, we plan our days around our meals and naps more often.    We eat lunch, we nap.  We eat dinner, sit to watch tv and fall asleep.  The only difference between adults and toddlers when it comes to eating and sleeping is we consistently look forward to these things each day!

But I digress.  Back to my kids tuning out my dinner bell.  When they did finally come to grace me with their presence, I had this avocado feta salsa waiting for them.  Normally, I’d serve this as an appetizer.  But tonight we had it on the side because it was so darn tasty!  Feta and white wine vinegar are naturals together.  The tang from the two are mellowed by the creamy avocados.  Oh my gosh, I could eat this every day!   I decided that I was going to have it for lunch the next day!  See, I planned my day around my food.  Why fight it?
