Guacamole and Jack-o-lanterns!

No Halloween party for us this year.. as much of a sad panda that makes me, I understand that most of our friends and loved ones are back in CT and we're still trying to establish good friendships down here in FL at our new home. Plus, most of our friends back home in CT were unable to get out to their annual Halloween parties due to the freak snow storm they're currently getting! A lot of them are without power, and those that do still have power are watching it flicker on and off. The snow is weighing down heavily on the tree branches that still have their leaves! Insanity! I'm just glad everyone is safe and sound.

H and I stayed in tonight, and I made fresh guacamole and we carved our pumpkin.

In a small mixing bowl combine:

2 avocados that have been peeled, pitted, and mashed

1/2 of a small sweet onion, minced

1/4 cup of diced tomatoes

3 tsp. fresh lime juice

1 tsp. garlic salt

Chill for 30 minutes, then serve with tortilla chips

So yummy!

After we mowed down on the deliciousness and I finished what was leftover of my Skinny Girl White Cranberry Cosmo from last night, we started working on our annual jack-o-lantern. 

I asked if she wanted to help, but apparently snuggling with daddy won

Finished product
