sometimes, things don’t turn out the way you envisioned it would. life isn’t perfect. people aren’t perfect. shit happens. and sometimes, all you can do is shrug, laugh at the situation, try to fix it the best you can, and say… “nailed it!”
the baked egg in an avocado (pictured above) was my first “nailed it” situation of the night. the avocados i had were too small, so the eggs were spilling over everywhere. i tried to fix it by improvising, and one avocado ended up being an egg-white avocado. it wasn’t part of the original plan, and the entire process to get to the end result wasn’t clean or perfect, but i actually preferred the egg-white avocado to the original one.

so here’s what that process i just described above looks like in pictures:
