Avocado Bar

by | Jul 21, 2015 | Entertaining, Main Dish | 1 comment

If you follow along on Instagram, you know I just returned from an amazing vacation with my family.  I’ll be sharing a round up of our adventures in London and Paris soon.

We had wonderful experience and some great food.  Traveling always leaves me craving simple, fresh food.  So that is what’s on the menu for this week. Oh, and something very easy!  Jet lag is sure to set in soon. (insert frowning emoji)

Tonight we’ll be having an Avocado Bar like the one I served at this fun party a few weeks ago.

Avocado Bar 1Cool, smooth avocados, fresh toppings like red cabbage, black bean and corn salsa and freshly made salsas.  I love adding sunflower, pumpkin or pomegranate seeds for a bit of crunch.

Avocado Bar 2One of the greatest things about an Avocado Bar is that you don’t have the make a thing if you don’t want to.  Many stores have local, fresh salsa and hopped vegetables so most of the work is done for you.  More like prepping than cooking, which is always great in the summer.

Sangria and Avocado BowlMy girls love choosing their own toppings.  This is great for a Meatless Monday, too.  I’ll be making a batch of my White Peach Basil Sangria tonight as well because it’s supposed to be over 100 degrees ever day this week in Dallas.

Happy Easy Summer Eating!

Fall Trend: Slouchy Bags

Last week in the Fall Style Boutique, I shared Seven Trends for Fall. Today, I want to focus on slouchy handbags.  It seems our craving for soft and comfortable things has now carried over into our accessories with the popularity of slouchy style handbags featuring gentle folds and gathers of leather and fabric.
