It started out innocent enough….
I found this recipe on Roni’s blog recently. Avocado Chocolate Pudding. I mean… I like Avocados, and I like Chocolate.
Erika came over for dinner tonight, and we were both excited to make this for dessert.
Add some chopped avocado, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, milk and vanilla and give it a whirl!
It was pretty amazing to see it turn into chocolate after just a couple of minutes. We were intrigued.
But behold… It actually had the texture of chocolate pudding!
It did taste pretty good, but it stuck to my stomache like glue. I actually only had a few bites before I had to put it down. Way too rich, even for me! It was a great experiment, and it did work… but just not for me. Maybe because I kept thinking of it as Avocado and it was weirding me out.
After dinner, we relaxed while watching this amazing movie:
This is by far, my favorite movie… ever. I was obsessed when I was in middle school. Remember back in the day if you didn’t have HBO, the channel would come in scrambled? I used to listen to the movie over and over (even though I couldn’t see the picture). So, so good.
Did anyone else have this poster on their wall in 1996? Who’s with me?
In other news, look what Irving hung on the wall today!
The 1st Wedding Anniversary gift is ‘Paper’, and I gave Irving this print. The background was a photo he took of the sunrise over the lake on our wedding day. And the text is from our first dance. The song was ‘Everything Else Disappears” by Sister Hazel. It’s a beautiful song. Here’s some of the lyrics:
I thought that I’d known you forever
I felt like I’d finally come home
After all of these lifetimes
You still take my breath away
Everything falls out of focus
You walk through the door
And one thing that’s clear to me
I’m all right with that
In a room full of people
Everything else disappears
Awe, I just got swept away thinking about this for a second there. Hearing our band play that song for us, and staring into Irving’s eyes was one of the best moments of my life.
Thanks for hanging the picture up, babe! Love you!
What was/will be your wedding song?
Our song was/is Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins. We slow danced to it in our front row seats at his farewell tour.
awe love the picture (& tell your friend tara “smile” is me and chris’ song lol)…anyways i dont know about that chocolate and avacado mixture…EW! lol & romeo & juliet was just on tv…i made chris watch it lol he told me to turn it off cuz he hated the way they talked.
HAHA That’s funny! Leo looks so young in the movie now. I think he was 22 when he made it. I used to think he was “SO OLD”! haha
What a great and meaningful piece of art.
Our wedding song was Happy Together, but The Turtles. We’re too uncoordinated to slow dance. hahahahhahah.
That’s awesome. I love the nontraditional stuff that surprises guests!
Our wedding song was To Make You Feel My Love, it’s an old Bob Dylan song but we used the Garth Brooks version.
Looks like you guys had fun! I will have to watch that movie. It’s girl movie so when Bob’s not around I can watch it and stare at Leo. LOL
Dessert looked interesting. Love the Sister Hazel lyrics. So sweet.
What a sweet idea! I might steal that.
Our song was Smile by Uncle Kracker. When I first heard it, I thought, “I could have written this song.” I didn’t realize it at the time, but I sang it to Josh during our first dance with what I can only describe as reckless abandon. Full on, head back, belting it out. This is why you get a videographer! So you can remember those embarrassing moments!
