Creamy Avocado Pasta Easy But Not Tasty

Some recipes seem better on screen than they taste. A good example of this would be creamy avocado pasta. I had some avocados I needed to use up and was in the mood for some pasta. I hunted online for some recipes and came across creamy avocado pasta.

It looked delicious and was easy to make. You just toss some items into a blender to make the sauce. But it didn’t taste good. First, the texture was really weird. Maybe I’m just not used to avocado as a sauce but I didn’t like it. Second, I probably should have diced the garlic before I put it in the blender. I thought the blender would get it, so I just chopped the garlic into large pieces. But the blender didn’t catch all the garlic, so I ended up eating some rather large hunks of garlic. Let me tell you, not tasty. Third, you can’t save leftovers. The avocado turns brown and smelled rather weird.

Yes, this recipe is easy to make but I definitely won’t be making it again.

Penne, and garden burgers, and corn. Oh my!

I’ve finally reached a point in my life when it annoys me that I have to put in a frozen pizza for dinner rather than take the time to make something. Unfortunately this week I haven’t had much time to eat, so the meals I’ve made have been pretty simple.

Here’s a wrap up of some of the meals and drinks that I have made this week:

Left: Penne with red pepper and a shredded italian cheese blend, topped with oregano. I was a little skeptical when I decided to put red pepper in my pasta but it was actually really scrumptious. Pair it with a dinner roll and you have a fabulous meal.

Middle: Root beer float! Since it’s summer, this is one drink I can’t pass up.

Right: Garden veggie burger and corn (another post about corn coming soon!) For those who don’t want meat or want a lighter burger, I would definitely recommend a garden veggie burden since it’s super easy to heat in the oven.
