It wasn’t really cold, but it was over 100 during the day and dropped more than 30 degrees and it was a little breezy, so it seemed cold!

  1. I started drooling as soon as I saw that photo. Seriously. I love me some risotto and adore avocado so this is a match made in heaven for me. I have to admit that I was a bit thrown when I saw that ‘cold’ was in the 70’s. Of course, if it’s been 100 earlier, it’s understandable. 🙂

    1. We cooled down to 85 yesterday and I’m thinking Fall is on it’s way…well in another month or to 🙂

  2. Just popped by to say hello, and this photo absolutely grabbed me! I wanted to eat this … NOW! I love risotto … but am so with you on needing quick, easy recipes! Yep … not a lot of time for standing and stirring at dinnertime! This is a brilliantly perfect solution, and I love the creaminess of the lusciously rich yet heart-healthy avocado! This is a phenomenal find! 😀
