    Looks great! Avocados are my new favorite food, I’ll be sure to try these sometime this summer. Glad you made it back to PA safe and sound:)

    Those look like fantastic recipes! I can hardly wait to try that first one. Just FYI… the link for the yogurt parfait goes to the punch recipe.

    The potato salad looks great. My simple and delicious recipe for the 4th is blueberries and strawberries on opposite sides of the plate and whip cream (sugar free) in the middle – red, white and blue.
