Avocado Carbonara

Okay, but avocados though. If you’re not an avocado person I’m not entirely sure we can be friends … I’m fairly sure we can’t go out for Mexican together. No. Wait. Yes we can. MOAR GUAC FOR ME.

Wasn’t terribly hot, but … ugh, clothes clinging to you in .25 seconds and the air felt like a wet wool blanket. Yay, summer. I don’t
