This article captures why I like the game so much!

“While Neko Atsume is addictive, it is almost blissfully pointless. Humans scatter bowls of [food and toys around their virtual yards.]. Then they check back in on their smartphones periodically, hoping to spot some cute felines that have dropped by for a visit.

Neko Atsume is a game in which there’s no reward beyond the chance to admire cute cats as they poke their heads out of a pile of leaves and nap atop pillow designed to look like pancakes. That’s pretty much what hanging out with cats is like in real life too.

The best prize is their company. We feel honored when cats spend time with us … because most of the time, they just do whatever they want.”

Test Kitchen: Baked Egg in Avocado

image

(From March 13, 2015)

Hahahaaa!! If I used Pinterest more, I’d post this as a #fail. This recipe looked simple enough, but nooooo…. I learned a bunch of things though. I might be willing to try again. I’d better – I have a Costco-sized bag of avocados.

Score: D

Recipe: http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Baked-Eggs-Avocado-Recipe-30787252

Lessons:
– Scoop out more avocado before adding the egg. I thought I scooped out enough. Nope.
– The recipe says to put the avos in a baking dish and get a tight fit. That’s so the avos stay upright and the egg doesn’t spill out.
– My eggs runneth over immediately when I cracked them into the avos. That caused a nice, glazy skin to form. #fail
– The avo skin gets very soft after being baked for 15-20 minutes. And they are quite hot. I was not willing to hold the “food item” with one hand and scoop with the spoon. I ended up peeling the avo skin off and knife-and-forking it. Since the egg had skinned over, it did not mind being manhandled.
– Taste: It tasted like warm avo and egg. Big whoop. Haaa!!
