Avocado, grapefruit, yellow beet and aragula sandwich
This is my variation of a recipe from the fantastic 'Wichcraft sandwich cookbook. Followers of my Tweeter feed chose the recipe for me, in what I called "Russian Roulette Cooking". It was great - juicy, crispy, luscious. Next time, I will toast the bread and maybe add a few slices of crisped up proscuitto.

I made walnut pesto for tomorrow's sandwich, also from the 'Wichcraft book
Walnut perso made from scratch
It's basically a cup and a half of toasted walnut blitzed in the mixer with a pinch of sea salt and a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. It's rich, earthy and salty. I bet it would be good with brown butter and sage on a ricotta and pumpkin ravioli.

I also made blueberry muffins using this recipe

I had a few :)

And then I ate two while watching Million Dollar Listings.

Oh, shut up. You know you watch it too.
