We have made delicious dinners, though, and I even made my favorite chocolate icebox pie. Click on that link to make this easy chocolate dessert.
I tried Marguerite's, of Cajun Delights, crab cakes from this blog post, and I made this spicy avocado sauce to top them. I baked them as Andrea of Recipes for Divine Living suggested. The cakes were placed on a bed of salad and that was Father's Day supper.
I ought to mention that I attempted to drizzle the avocado sauce as Andrea did in her image below. See? Pretty isn't it?
This attempt, because I didn't puree the sauce and because I snipped the end off of a Ziploc baggy to pipe it, resulted in a clump of avocado blocking the opening, building up pressure, thusly exploding across my arm, counter top, and cabinets.
I should have snapped a pic of that.
It would have put a smile on your face. I know it put a smile on my face. Despite the pity party I'd been having for myself, I laughed out loud. Hubby got a good laugh, too! I declared that it served me right for trying to be a fancy-pants, piping avocado sauce to impress my fellow bloggers.
Well, the taste was good anyway.
Stay tuned, I've been working on this when Bebe's been resting...
I hope the end result of my first refurbishing project is how it appears in my mind. : )
