Creamy Avocado Pasta

Included in Thursday's festivities was dinner, we deemed Mariah head chef and she cooked up a storm while Amels and I got to relax.

On the menu was Creamy Avocado Pasta with roasted asparagus and Garlic Tuscan bread. Garlic Tuscan bread is a weekly thing at home and I can't get enough of it and I introduced it to them and I think it may have been life changing for them.
