Once upon a time, I discovered a new salad obsession. Easy peasy avocado salad dressing.
Chapter 1: Smash 1/2 an avocado with fork.
Chapter 2: Stir in Salsa.
Chapter 3: Stir in salad fixings of choice.
Chapter 4: Make room in your personal produce section and finish getting ready to run off and hit up yet another open house.
Chapter 5: Enjoy salad in car on the way and wonder who turned out the lights?
Chapter 6: Take your hood off because it’s not raining in the car.
Chapter 7: Pile the whole family in the car for an open house adventure. Even Hissy can come.
Hmmm… might this be our new neighborhood?
Um, in a word – NO. I’m still recovering from uneven floors, that “what have they been cooking in here” smell most importantly, lack of a dishwasher. Given my dishwasher sometimes runs twice a day – just kill me now.
That’s right, RUN Max RUN!
After our first and LAST open house with the girls in tow (Hissy is still welcome), we headed off to a birthday party so big even Santa was there.
My girlfriend Sharon’s youngest daughter turned 1 yesterday, and her hubby turns the big 3-0 later this month. So they had a huge, outdoor bash on this unfortunately rainy and unseasonably cold day.
But 3 layers with gloves and a hat and some hot apple cider made everything alright.
The wet bouncy house went over like a lead balloon.
If we can’t jump, at least we can eat!
Oooohhh not so fast – don’t try to sneak me any pepperoni! I’m on to the vegetarian saboteurs!
I had a vegetarian roommate in college and I asked her once what she would do if chopped up meat really small and secretly served it to her mixed in with something. She said she would never speak to me again. Interesting. At least I had a Plan B should she become the roommate who never shuts up.
Oh look – stuff I can eat!
And stuff that is questionable. Are those bacon bits or sun-dried tomatoes? I guess we’ll never know.
And more stuff I can’t. Who wants my bacon!?
Like all stories – this on one had a happy ending with rain that subsided in time for a beautiful sunset.
And a post that ended with a beautiful cupcake tower.
