I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post! Where have I been? Just busy with life. Working on my home improvement project (making progress, but not done yet), being an advocate for my daughter’s education, hosting my parents for a visit, and planning and executing a successful garage sale. Whew, I need a break!
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was the perfect appetizer to make during my parent’s visit. My Dad and I both have birthdays later this month, so we had a an early birthday party.
So, this appetizer was supposed to look like little “raviolis”, with avocado in place of the pasta. We were to use a mandoline to thinly slice the whole avocados, pit and all. After a few successful slices, the pit got jammed in the blade and squished the rest of the avocado. I could tell that further attempts would just make a big mess. So I opted to just slice the avocado the traditional way, and make constructed salads.
“Raviolis” or not, this was one delicious appetizer! The crab meat was seasoned with salt, lime zest and juice, shallot, cilantro, and pistachio oil. The flavors went wonderfully together. This was a big hit with everyone!
I have a couple more FFWD recipes that I have made but not blogged about yet. I hope to catch up on those soon!
