How do you like your fries?

There are so many variations out, and I love almost all of them. Just not the soggy ones. Because let’s be honest, soggy fries are not fries. At least, not in my eyes.

A family friend came over the other night and gave us a box full of potatoes because her family had so many they couldn’t finish them all. I knew I had to do something with these potatoes before they start growing roots. And since I’ve been craving fries…

Cajun Corn and Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Boats | Cooking with a Wallflower Before I get started with my usual spiel, I wanted to ask you guys if you’re having trouble accessing my site in any way. I’ve received a few messages from readers saying that they’re not able to see my blog properly, or they’re having trouble following email notifications back to my blog. I’m actually self-subscribed to my blog just so that I can see what my readers are seeing and what I need to fix. I’ve checked on multiple devices too. So far, I’m not seeing any of issues described. I may have lost subscribers this way, I’m not sure. But let me know if you’re experiencing any problems accessing my blog. I’d love to be able to help fix it if I can.

Let’s get to the recipe now =)

Life of a Wallflower, 17 – CDA Presents Convention

Towards the end of last week, the California Dental Association held a convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. I opted to go because one, I have never been, two, there were a few lectures that I was really excited to hear (you’ll see why in a bit), and three, freebies (who doesn’t love freebies?).

There’s also the matter of networking. Cross your fingers for me. I’m hoping that I’ll at least have a temporary or part time job in dental hygiene soon.

The CDA Presents convention is basically a place for dental professionals of California to gather, listen to lectures about new research and discoveries, and explore dental related products. I have never been so I didn’t know what to expect.

We have so many ripe figs in our refrigerator.  So tonight I thought I’d share a recipe that included figs as an ingredient.

My grandma’s neighbor has this huge fig tree in his front yard, but he doesn’t like eating them. So instead, he leaves a wooden ladder underneath the tree and let his neighbors pick as many as they want, which means during the summer months when figs are in season, we pick at least a bucket full each week. Sometimes more depending on how many are ripe and within reach. I won’t include photos because it’s not our house, but if you’ve been fig picking before, you’d know it’s no easy task.

It’s been an eventful couple of days for me. I’ve been busy attending the California Dental Association convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. There was just so much to learn, to try, and to see! I was super excited to discover new products that would be beneficial for me as a clinician and for my patients as well, but enough of that for now =)

In tonight’s post, I’m going to share with you the yummiest, most flavorful avocado toast ever! Well, at least, it feels like that to me. I’m certainly not stingy with the amount of avocado I place on my toast. The higher I pile the mashed avocado onto my slice of bread, the happier I’ll be. I really can’t resist avocado in any form.

I hope you had a wonderful Labor Weekend! What did you guys do to celebrate? My family didn’t really do anything for Labor Day weekend, mostly because it always coincides with my youngest sister’s birthday. And this year, she’s finally turning 21! So we took her out to dinner to celebrate a little early, not that we wouldn’t have if she wasn’t turning 21, but it still felt a little more special. Her birthday isn’t until September 3rd, but it’s easier to celebrate over the weekend when we’re all mostly free. =)
