Avocado Brushetta

I have this friend. She is lovely. Do you have a lovely friend? Probably. If not, you should get one. They're pretty great. Especially when your friend is good in the kitchen like mine. She made this once for me and I was hooked. No exaggeration. I make this about once a week. Sometimes even twice.
The hubs likes it just as much as me, maybe more.

It is probably intended as an appetizer, or side. But for us, it is the whole meal. Why eat something else when you know it won't taste as good as this? It has kind of turned into our Friday routine. 

Kids in bed- check
Pajamas on- check
Bruschetta made- check
Modern Family in the DVD player- check (feel free to substitute for something else equally awesome)

This "meal" has some very appealing perks to it, too. First, it's fast. I'm talking 5 minutes and you're done. Second, it's good for you. Tomatoes, avocado, olive oil, (ok fine, there's parmesan cheese, but we'll count it as the protein). Third, it's awesome. I mean awesome. Now go buy some avocados. Trust me.

  1. These look really good! When I was pregnant with my second child I craved something similar but with chicken and onions on it. Yummy!
