roasted corn & avocado salad

RCAS-5019

So here’s the thing: I really don’t have any semi-decent excuse for being M.I.A. the past three months. I’ve had this recipe in my arsenal for quite some time, but I just haven’t been able to bring myself to write. And considering that this summer has given me so much to write about… it’s weird. I know.

Y’all, I’m still recovering from the sugar coma that this amazing four-layer chocolate cake put me in. (Sidenote: Sometimes I like to say y’all… I’ve been watching too much Paula Deen lately.)  In the event that you decided to bake an elaborate cake on any old random Wednesday (or for a birthday/ BBQ/ whatever else one might bake a cake for), here’s a salad to help reverse said sugar-induced coma.

25 Things About This Summer:

1. I made these guys.  Then I ate them, and life was good.  We’ll get back to them in a little bit.

2. I am almost finished catching up on all seven seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. In other words, I watch too much TV.

3. I wore a tux to work.  I felt like a penguin.

4. Gingie was spotted hiding on top of boxes of stock during a thunderstorm.  I ran to take a picture before consoling her.  Priorities.

5. I wake up at 4:50 in the morning for work. Yikes.

6. On my days off, I wake up at 6 am… without an alarm. Double yikes.

7. I can’t even tell you how many pots of coffee I’ve brewed this summer.

8. I’m 95% sure the coffee maker at work has a vendetta against me.  I’ve cleaned up overflowing coffee way too many times for there to be any other explanation (and yes, I do know how to brew a good pot of coffee).

9. Speaking of work, I spotted this gem in the parking lot.

10. I went to Michigan and ate at Zingerman’s Deli.  It was glorious.

11. My flight home from Michigan got cancelled. Typical.

12. I discovered this blog.  Genius.

13. Foodgawker overload.

14. I fell asleep on a pool float and didn’t get burned. Hallelujah!

15. Awkward flip-flop tan lines.

16. Cheese-balling it up at Niagara Falls!

Maid of Mist

17. I whipped up some Almond Butter Froyo with Amaretto Caramel Sauce.  Noms.

18. I made 3674569845769872305 supermarket trips… and I don’t particularly like going grocery shopping (weird, I know).

19. I exaggerated.

20. Olympic opening ceremony face dresses, say whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

21. Why were the Spice Girls not at the opening ceremonies?! #90skidprobs

22. I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge!

23. And once in Brooklyn, I ate at Bubby’s. Yay comfort food!

24. Every time TLC airs the previews for this show I cringe.

25. Air conditioning, I love you.

End random ramblings. Back to the eggplant rolls!
