Creamy Avocado Spread


I love sandwiches.  For a girl whose favorite meal of the day is breakfast, sometimes it's hard to find something perfect to whip up in a cinch for lunch.

But a good sandwich, we all know, can make or break any mid-day meal.

There is nothing wrong with the classic combinations such as turkey and cheese, ham and cheese etc etc, but sometimes truth be told these standbys start to feel a little, well....

...old.

It's nothing personal turkey cheese and mustard sandwich, you were my favorite growing up and I still enjoy you now, it's just sometimes I crave a little more.

Enter this spread! 

This spread re-lit the flames of the love affair between me and sandwiches.  It's the perfect solution if the same old same old is just getting a little boring after awhile.

It's really great on crackers too (shown above) and you'll find yourself looking for excuses and items to put it on.  If you're trying to save money by packing a lunch instead of buying it every day, I definitely say give this a try.


Your sandwiches and crackers will thank you. ;)
