So, here we are again, uploading another recipe from the Facebook. Not that I necessarily want this to become a food blog or anything, but as it is a blog about life and adventure … sometimes trying out new recipes fits right in! πŸ™‚


Doesn’t it look good?

Okay, so here’s the recipe:

Cayenne pepper (or spice of your choosing)
Cheese (optional)

Remove the seed/pit from the avocado. Scoop out a little more avocado to make the hole larger. Crack an egg into the hole. Sprinkle with spices and cheese as desired. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees until the egg is cooked to your preference.

Pro Tip: Cut a little off the back of the avocado so it doesn’t roll around in the oven.

Perhaps I’ll buy an avocado and some eggs and try this out this weekend. Perhaps…. πŸ™‚

Remember the community of OLGC and all the petitions each time you use stairs in your life today. Keep the physical journey and the strength and endurance of the pilgrims in your prayers. Consider today how you can do God’s will.

Make Your ways known to me, O Lord.

Father Almighty, Your ways and purpose are often hidden from us. Guide me now and through the intercession of Saint Francis of Assisi, I beg You, in my sorrow, and by Your power, to let me know Your will regarding my special need (mention your request). Amen.

Lord, make me an instrument of peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
For it is in giving, that we receive,
It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned.
And it is in dying, that we are born to Eternal life.

* Note: None of these pictures are mine, as I’ve never been to Italy. *sob* Nor are they pictures from the pilgrims. They are pictures taken from people who have allowed others to link to them; you can click through each picture to the photographer’s page, to see more of their work.

May God bless you, pilgrims!
