Unbeknownst to me, I celebrated National Avocado Day with this Creamy Avocado & Cucumber Sauce on my penne. 
But, whose national avocado day was it? The United States? Mexico? Why not international avocado day? To acknowledge the international, global, and transnational networks, politics, and forces that allow us to have avocados all day, every day, even in Ohio.

 I used a biggie chili & a sweet cayenne from the man at the farmers’ market & I left half the seeds in each one. And I’m dying. But, at least I’m not crying like I did the first time I ate sisig. I remember what Lola advised: wash it down with beer.

White bean & cauliflower alfredo sauce! It’s lactose free & I’m in heaven! It’s also vegan, recipe from the Simple Veganista.

My spinach & chicken Alfredo pasta is not vegan, but it’s so tasty after many years sans Alfredo in my life.

black bean fajitas w/ guacamole turned into quinoa power bowl for lunches this week! I topped mine with greek yogurt, as well, but before that, the dish is vegan! And I think it’s gluten free? Inspired by The Simple Veganista
