Chocolate Avocado Banana Pudding

Ashley posted this recipe a couple weeks ago and she was absolutely correct when she practically demanded that her blog readers make it. “I can’t even describe how delicious this was. I say this a lot and when I say it, I mean it. Make this, now.” This is some amazing stuff!

It has the amazing texture of chocolate pudding and the chocolate flavor comes through the most, but with a subtle banana kick. Both bananas and avocado’s are super creamy and have mild flavors so the recipe results make perfect sense.

Friday night dinner

My friend Kelly told me about a meet-up group that she had recently joined, Triangle Localista. It’s a group of like minded individuals in the Triangle that prefer to support “independent retailers, restaurants, farmers markets, local parks & culture. Shop - Eat - Play Local!”

Tonight was the first gathering that either of us had been able to attend, a group of 6 of us met for dinner at Four Square. It was a fun experience and nice to meet several new people. The dinner itself was delicious…
