I Feel Pretty: Salmon Avocado Toasts a la Costco

I am posting this photo out of pure vanity. Isn't that a nice looking plate o' food? Classy, if somewhat retro, I think. They have the aspect of something that might have been suggested by the Thomas' English Muffins marketing department, circa 1969, no?

But here's why I'm especially impressed with myself (this time, anyway): Everything on the plate came from Costco. The avocados came in net bag of eight. The smoked salmon was a huge slab of store brand. And the toasted English muffins, well, let's just say that I still have 15 muffins to go. The whole shebang cost somewhere in the neighborhood of two dollars.

Cheap semi-retro class--that's me, in a nutshell.

Hi, Im carrying out a study into some aspects of Fishing such as 'equipment fishing tackle'. I need to find volunteers to help. I've used equipment fishing tackle but I need more contributors. Any ideas on where to look?
