Avocado Pound Cake Muffins. . .

Ok. So I found this recipe from Joy the Baker. At first, the sound of having Avocado in a treat threw me off, but then I was quickly intrigued by what this might taste like. I got all the ingredients and cooked up some muffins for Alex and I. . . They're pretty good, I must say. You do know that there is Avocado in the muffin when you bite in, but it's nice! Plus, the muffins turn out this great light green color!

Charlotte Perriand

Charlotte Perriand (via wikepedia) "Perriand became known at 24 years of age with "Bar Under the Roof" — furniture made out of chromed steel and anodized aluminium. This was presented at the Salon d'Automne of 1927 and was acclaimed by the critics. Shortly afterward, she was invited to begin a collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, which would last nearly ten years. She exhibited with them in the Salon d'Automne of 1929, "The Equipment of Habitation: Racks, Seats, Tables ". This furniture would be produced by Thonet and more recently by Cassina.

From 1940, onwards, her style was strongly influenced by a long stay in the Far East, and in particular in Japan from 1940 to 1942. Charlotte Perriand took part in the design of the ski resorts of Les Arcs in Savoie, at the same time making her architecture and installations of interiors. Since March 2004, Cassina produces the furniture of Charlotte Perriand."

These chairs, attribution, designed in 1972, are lightweight forms in chromium-plated tubular steel with aluminum caps to feet and brown leather sling seats. . . love.
