Day 6 feels a bit like a cheat. Today's salad was actually Saturday night's salad. See, this little challenge I threw for myself on a whim about a week ago? In order to learn the ropes on how to be a better recipe person, and blog on a regular basis? And work on inter-connections? And build my website? Well I'm having fun with it. But sometimes, plans derail. And you just need to go with the flow. Amiright, Joe?
So last Friday morning, I put the challenge out on one of my social media accounts that I was going to make this gorgeous (and delicious looking) Avocado Caprese Salad I saw on Pinterest, ostensibly later on that day. Well, as plans are made, plans are tossed to the wayside. That's why we make plans, right? Read the story here. Anyhoo, I saved this Avocado Caprese Salad then for our Saturday night feast and film night chez nous. And I made it. And it was SO EASY. And CREAMY. And with a little bit of bite. And as promised, I am here to report two days later, that this salad, courtesy of Foodie Crush, was every bit as yummy as you think it tastes. Go try it. That is about all I have to say.

As my gang is not so keen on avocados, I pared back and just made sure I made the sacrifice for us all and served all of the avocado on my plate. And I dressed just once I portioned out onto our plates; the leftovers were tucked in the fridge and I must report that the next day, the leftovers of the salad plus one half of a perfectly ripe avocado plus smoked salmon? Well it might have made my busy Sunday just about one of the best Sundays in history. And no, I'm not exaggerating.
Ah yes, the famed movie night. We watched Goonies. Remember that movie? Turns out it's the 30 year anniversary of the release this week! Sometimes I feel like we are connected to some other dimension… And yes, there was pizza. A lot of it.
Thanks to the Italian store for the local basil and arugula and grape tomatoes for this salad! And thanks to Heidi at Foodie Crush for this yummy salad. Go check it out, she even tells you how to adeptly pit an avocado!
