When I was a kid I refused to eat avocados. REFUSED. We had taco night once a week in my house and every week my mom would make guacamole to go with the tacos. Every week my parents would ask me if I wanted to try the guacamole and every week I would say no. It wasn’t until I was 16 years old that I finally gave avocados a try and I instantly fell in love. To this day I still kick myself that I lost 16 years of eating avocados. 16 years of avocado eating that I will never get back.
Tonight I’m going to be making up for some lost time. Avocado’s of Mexico has asked me to be a judge in their Avocado Showdown. 20 bloggers and foodies are coming together to create their best avocado dish which 4 other judges and myself will sample.
I’m so excited and can’t wait to see what everyone brings to the table!
Today I’m sharing some fabulous avocado dishes over on the Hello Creative Family facebook page.
One recipe that has me drooling is this Creamy Avocado Pasta Recipe from The Inspired Home. Using avocado instead of cream sauce? Genius! This is a recipe that I’m definitely going to be trying at home!
Head on over to The Inspired Home for the full recipe and follow #AvoShowdown on social media tonight for the highlights of the big event!
