Recipe: Salmon Stuffed Avocado

Too bad avocado season isn’t forever!  I don’t know about you, but avocados are a daily occurrence in my home when they are in season.  I seriously cannot find enough to do with them!

I was in the mood to find something new to do with my last avocado of the week and I wanted to use the limited items I had available in the house before next grocery trip.  When I get like (trying to find something to eat with limited items) I go to one of my favorite all time sites:  www.allrecipes.com

You know that website was designed specifically for me yes?  ::giggle::

They have a function on their website that you can search by ingredient.  When I have limited ingredients, I go to the website and type in what I have on hand and then see what other people have come up with using those particular ingredients.  This particular day I typed in avocado, cream cheese, and salmon to see what it came up with!

What a way to get inspiration!  I looked at a few recipes and decided to combine a few and this is what I came up with!  I always gotta tweek recipes to make them HIGH FAT!!!

Enjoy!
