Avocado Cilantro Cream Salsa

Labor Day has, unfortunately, come to a close. I found myself crying myself to sleep last night, solely because my extended three-day weekend came to an untimely end. Why me? I bawled. Why so soon?

But of course, the end of breaks are inevitable. No matter how often I’d pray as a young child for some extension of my summer/spring/fall/winter/other break, it’d never come. I remember in the winter, everyone in my third grade class performed these crazy “snow rituals” in an attempt to convince the clouds to pour out snow, ice, hail… whatever would get us out of school! Of course, Dallas isn’t the ideal place for snow (much less the blizzard we wanted to summon), and it never worked.

Maybe it’s better, though, that the work/school week is back. When I have a day off, I usually just lie in my bed and hope I don’t have to do anything all day. (“I’m recovering!”) Weekends and vacations, as nice as they are, have a tendency to sap all motivation out of me.

Over on Kuya’s Notebook, my personal blog, I haven’t added anything to the draft that’s been sitting in my dashboard for a good two months. Eh, oh well, I’m sure I’ll get it out eventually! (And I have all of my New York and Orlando trips to write about!) You know, you could even take a look here… This is my first post in a while! (I’ll try to get my schedule all in order again—sorry guys!)

I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way sometimes, especially when it comes to food. Because let’s be honest, cooking anything can be exhausting if you do it all the time! I tried to bake cookies from scratch and brownies from a mix within a span of two weeks and I’m baked out.

Because I live in a land where Tex-Mex reigns supreme, here’s a fun avocado cilantro cream salsa for you. It’s not too difficult, and it’s a fun dip for chips—something you can have when you’re not in the mood for a big meal or snack. Just something small!
