Fact: One of my very best friends, Katy, was under the impression that Avocados have 800 calories. Oh Katy. While avocados do have good fat and are relatively high in calories for a vegetable, they have about 275 calories for a medium avocado (just over 5 ounces). NOT 800. They are also the perfect base for a dairy free, creamy, rich, delicious chocolate pudding!
On Friday, my mom and Eden and I drove to the strip to pick up Eden's mom, Davida, and get breakfast/lunch at Max Brenner.
Of course I had a Mexican Hot Chocolate:

Their dream: A "house in two parts". It's extremely unassuming as you drive up to it, and then you walk inside and see all the copper and their breathtaking view with floor to ceiling glass windows. Wish we could have gone inside!
We had dinner at the Cosmopolitan and our dads joined. Charlie had work to do (is anybody surprised?) I am in love w/one hard worker!
Eden went to see a show w/her parents that night so she stayed with them.
Charlie and I are so sad to see her go, but hope we can meet up with her once more this summer before the wedding!
Don't go Eden!
(This is actually a picture of us when my parents texted me after Taste of the Nation that they took the dogs to their house, we sent it to them to show them how sad we were).
And don't worry, coming up real soon - recipes! Including the avocado pudding you have all been waiting for!
