Mermaids & Avocados

Just before St. Patrick’s Day, the lovely lady over at How About Orange posted a very easy and very delicious recipe for Avocado-Lemon Pie (which sounds weird, but trust me, it’s DIVINE) that I absolutely had to try. I made it on St. Patty’s and it turned out pretty damn good – except that I forgot to grab condensed milk. I substituted with dry milk mixed with water and sugar, so mine wouldn’t coagulate properly. This past weekend I discovered we had two avocados waiting to be used and went and picked up ingredients to make this pie again. I can happily say that remembering to buy condensed milk made it 100x more delicious and easier to handle. I managed to take a few pictures as the sun was setting earlier today and here are the results.

I also took a few pictures of my nails, because I painted them last night. I used Essie Shine of the Times topcoat straight on to my naked nails and sealed it with Essie No Chips Ahead. I really love Shine of the Times because it reminds me of fairytales and mermaids and makes me wish it was summer already so I could be swimming in my pool pretending to be a mermaid. It’s a multi-dimensional polish/topcoat, so it looks different at different angles. It’s kind of mesmerizing.

Lastly, I would like to mention that I am trying to sell my camera. If you’re interested, please by no means don’t hesitate to contact me. It’s a used in excellent condition Nikon d3000 kit (comes with 18-55 mm lens and carrying accessories) and I am throwing in an 8 GB SD card with it too. If you’re in the market for a beginner’s DSLR, this is a great choice!

Note: You may NOT use this work outside of the viewing pleasure of this blog. Thank you!

    1. Thanks! The polish is apparently limited edition, but you can find other brands that carry the same thing.
      I highly encourage you to try making the pie. It’s really simple and cheap and SO GOOD.

      1. I have had my eyes on A Cut Above ever since it came out… but I can’t find it anywhere in Canada..

        I will definitely try out the pie when I have more time! My boyfriend loves avocado and lemon! :)
