Since today marks the start of Labor Day weekend, I wanted to share a recipe that would showcase all of my favorite summer flavors but also something that was super easy to put together. These stuffed avocados are just that. A quick home made pico de gallo made with perfectly ripe tomatoes is stuffed into creamy avocados and then the whole thing is drizzled with lime juice for a burst of citrus flavor. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day.
When I was a little one I used to think that Labor Day was the day that all pregnant women went into labor. It makes total sense to a kid. However, as I sit here a little more round then I usually am, I can say that I am glad that that is not the case. Not that I’m not ready to meet our little man. I certainly am. We’re just not quite ready to bring him home yet, AKA the nursery isn’t done. We haven’t even started. It is still a guest room/office/Christmas decoration storage room. So this Labor Day, I think I will begin preparing for my upcoming labor day by getting the nursery ready. However, I do suppose I will make time for a few of these stuffed avocados. Judging by all the dancing around he does after I eat one, baby boy seems to like them.

While the big meal is certainly what we all look forward to on Thanksgiving, the appetizers are one of my favorite parts too. We’ve always had trays of salami and cheese, pickles and olives, deviled eggs and, my favorite, the dips. This year, I thought I’d throw a new one in the mix with this [...]
