    Chilli Flakes (for seasoning)

STEP 2


Cut the Avocado in half long ways around the stone, and pull it apart so you have two halves, one with the stone in. To remove the stone put a knife in it and twist – it will pop right out. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh in one half and then slice. Lay the slices evenly on the toast slices and spritz with the lime juice so the avocado does not go brown. Season with salt and pepper and repeat with the other half. Put aside.

STEP 3


Poach the eggs one at a time. Have a plate covered with a kitchen towel ready. Crack the egg into a small bowl so it is easier to transfer into the water. stir the boiling water vigorously with a spoon to get a swirling clockwise motion in the water. Allow the swirling to calm slightly, then drop the egg right into the centre. It should drop straight to the bottom and remain relatively still. Set a timer for 3 minutes then remove the egg with a slotted spoon and place on the plate lined with kitchen towel. Repeat with the second egg. Note – 3 minutes will give you a poached egg where the white is cooked and the yolk is runny. Increase the time to 4 or 5 minutes if you like the yolk more solid.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
