It’s all in the Sauce

Ok, so my camera is still not working :(.  It wasn’t super nice, but it was still my little camera and I hate that now I have to buy a new one.  I plan on purchasing one on Saturday when I am home during the day. Until then, I am borrow Brian’s.   Any advice on what might be the issue with my current one?  The lens part is stuck out and will not go back in.  I am able to review pictures when I turn it on, but I am not able to take any…poor camera.

I ate dinner before Brian came home because I was hungry and figured that he could heat his up.  Following a suggestion from one of my friends I tried the 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce from Oh She Glows.  This is a recipe that has been “on the list” to try for about a month now, but avocados are always so darn expensive.  This week they weren’t too bad, and they had a deal on purchasing a pack of 4, and I had another avocado recipe that I have been wanting to try.

I honestly don’t even think this recipe took 15 minutes to prepare!

15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce (originally seen on Oh She Glows)

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice (or half a lemon’s worth)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • black pepper to taste
Preparation:
Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.  Place on top of cooked pasta and steamed veggies (or at least that’s what I did…volumize with veggies!) and mix in.  This meal is so delicious and creamy without being overly heavy.  I also think it would pair well with salmon.
After Brian gets back and eats dinner we are going on a bike ride!  I had planned on doing pilates before heading back to Indy, but waking up in the 3am hour just kind of deterred me away from that idea for some reason 😉 so a bike ride will be a great way to be active on this “rest” day!
