When family and friends are home for the holidays, food always seems to be top of mind. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, or taste-full entertaining, someone has to prepare appetizers, entrees, or baked goodies that are crowd-pleasers. There are a lot of distractions during the holidays that can get in the way of preparing something tasty, no matter how spectacular, or how simple. So using the best ingredients can help tantalize the taste buds, even if you don’t have a lot time.
Following AIP can be difficult, especially during the holidays. There’s so much temptation and yummy things everywhere but are they worth the tummyache? Or all the crazy, super serious symptoms that might come with falling off the AIP wagon. So on my search for yummy recipes that won’t make me sick for a week, I did some trial and error with my favorite scone recipe, and to my surprise these came out delicious!!!!
The holidays are always so packed with yummy and endulgent foods and when you’re a mom is not always easy to say no to the kids. Especially if they are surrounded with candy and sweets at all the holiday parties. So I came up with this recipe that tricks my kiddos into thinking they are having candy when they are actually having dates! Yeap, dates! My kids eat dates and they love them! We call them snowballs, which is a nice holiday theme name but you can make these year round.
If you are here that means you are also freaking out about the avocado prices. Right now they are not super cheap but I can only imagine how insane it’ll get. So after a bit of research I found out YOU CAN FREEZE THEM! I know some people are going to read this and laugh or call me silly but when your diet depends so much on healthy fats, avocado is super important!
So without getting political, or letting much anger come through this post here’s how you freeze avocados:
- Cut the avocado in half, careful! Remove the pit and peel.
- Decide if you want to freeze halves or slices.
- If you are keeping them as halves, put them in a bag, date and freeze.
- If you prefer slices, cut them, bag them and freeze them.
I don’t recommend mashing the avocados to freeze because they get darker quicker and it just grosses me out. You could also add lemon or lime juice but I find that the taste becomes really strong. You can always freeze the slices and mash them once you thaw them out.
Also, something important to point out, like many other fruits and vegetables they are just not the same after freezing so it’s better if you just use the avocados for guacamole, smoothies or any recipes where you mix them with other ingredients. Better than nothing right? Or I guess in this case better than $5 an avocado 🙄
Now for the tequila…. I guess you can stock up 😂
