Smashing my dreams of home ownership: Avocado
We all saw it in late 2016 when Bernard Salt, a columnist from The Weekend Australian Magazine criticised Gen Y for their eating habits while noting this is the reason most of us won’t own a house by retirement “I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop and more… I can afford to eat this for lunch because I am middle-aged and have raised my family. But how can young people afford to eat like this?”.
And there was backlash… Of course there was, ain’t nobody gonna tell me what to eat for breakfast! In all seriousness though, I am probably not going to, okay I am definitely not going to give up avocado on toast. That just won’t work with my lifestyle, sorry Bernard I am a disappointment to my generation, but I will live another day happy.
I think that $22 was proably an overstatement (or he's being ripped off by his local cafe) however maybe I can save my money by making smashed avo at home.
How do you do avocado on toast? My favourite way to have it is in the recipe here.
I also love avocado and Vegemite on toast.. Sounds horrendous, tastes Ah-Mazing! If you haven’t already, you should try it! Now, right now, go!
