Welp, this recipe would’ve been perfect for your Cinco de Mayo festivities, but here I am posting it on Ocho de Mayo. Oops. But hey, it’s salsa season so you’re going to want to make this every. single. day. until summer is over. You’re welcome. By the way, did anyone else notice how insanely cheap avocados get the week leading up to cinco de mayo? I wish they’d freeze well, I would’ve stocked up for the rest of the YEAR. I paid 49 cents per avocado. WHAT? Yeah, forty nine freaking cents you guys. I felt like it was the black friday of avocado shopping. I don’t really get why we are ripped off the rest of the year paying triple that, but whatever. I do it. You win grocery store, you win.
So this little avocado number is pretty darn simple. Chop the fruits and veg, and toss! I had never tried mixing pineapple and mango together in salsa, I’d always just choose one or the other. But mixing both fruits really made this unique. And tasty. So tasty. I’d eat this for dinner with a big mound of salty salty chips every night if I wasn’t trying to look my best in a wedding dress soon. And by soon I mean we haven’t even set our date yet. But I bought my dress already soooooooo is that weird?
I feel like we are totally procrastinating planning our wedding because we don’t want to actually come to grips with how much money we’ll be spending. WHY ARE WEDDINGS MINIMUM $20,000??!?!?! I’m a corporate event planner for a living so I get it, I know events are expensive. But for some reason I’m not ready to justify $20,000 on a 6 hour event that half of our family and friends will consume so much alcohol at they probably won’t remember much of it anyway.
Any and all cheap wedding ideas/non-traditional wedding ideas/wedding advice is ALL welcome in the comments.
