It has been awhile since I have done a “What I’m Loving” post, but I have missed it!  I love finding good round-ups to learn about new blogs and recipes.  I will be choosing a theme to bring to you with each of these posts and the theme to kick us off is avocados!

Sweet or savory, I can’t get enough of the creamy, dreamy texture of avocados and they lend such a subtle flavor to so many dishes.  One of my favorite lunches is mashed avocado on toast with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of chili flakes, salt and pepper.  Here are a few dishes that feature avocado that I cannot wait to try!

Avocado Bacon Pasta Salad from Host the Toast Blog:  Smooth creamy avocado with crispy salty bacon might be a flavor combination that ranks right up there with chocolate and peanut butter for me.  And that is saying a lot.

Baked Avocado Fries with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce from Eat Drink Love:  I can just imagine the crispy breaded outside of these fries contrasting the creamy inside of avocados, yum!

Avocado Banana Bread from Crazy for Crust:  Can you imagine how moist this bread is with that avocado used as the primary fat source??

Stovetop Avocado Mac & Cheese from Two Peas & Their Pod:  This takes creamy to a whole new level…..

ABCT (Avocado, Bacon, Cheese, Tomato) Sandwich from One Lovely Life:  I much prefer my BLT’s with avocado and the addition of pepperjack cheese would add a nice kick of heat.

What is your favorite way to enjoy avocados?  Links to recipes welcome 🙂

Any theme recommendations for the next edition of What I’m Loving?

    Yep, I think I could live on avocados. Great list, Mercedes! I’ve been eating them a lot lately, just cubed up and adding to salads, toast, sandwiches and pasta dishes!
