Avocado makes everything better. I love avocado and usually prefer just to eat it with a spoon (Try it with a little bit of soy sauce. Trust me.), but when I saw this recipe, I had to try it. Chicken parmigiana is one of my favorite Italian dishes, and the avocado really puts it over the edge.
2 Chicken Breast Fillets, halved lengthways and pounded thin
1/2 Cup Flour
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 1/2 Cups Dried Breadcrumbs
1/2 Cup Tomato Pasta Sauce
2 Avocados, Sliced
1/2 Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400°F
2. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
3. Dredge each breast in the flour and tap off excess, then dip in the egg and let excess drip off, then dredge on both sides in the bread crumbs
4. Bake for 8 minutes (turning after 4 minutes to brown evenly on both sides)
5. Remove from oven and spread each chicken breast with pasta sauce. Arrange avocado slices over sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
6. Return to oven and bake for another 5 - 7 minutes or until golden and chicken is cooked through.

Mmmm I love deviled eggs like this ranch version I made a while back. I also love avocados. Seriously, I could eat them with a spoon. So after making this recipe I quickly discovered that deviled eggs + avocado = DELICIOUS!
- 10 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- Peel eggs and cut in half, either lengthwise or crosswise. Carefully scoop out yolks, and arrange whites on a platter or tray.
- In a bowl, mix egg yolks, avocado, lemon juice, and mayonnaise until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
- Transfer egg yolk mixture to a plastic bag and cut the corner. Pipe mixture carefully and very neatly into egg halves.

It finally happened! It only took a few weeks longer than expected. Now that my root is about 5-6 inches, it's ready to be put in the ground. I've put it in a one gallon pot and filled the dirt halfway up the bulb, being careful not to cover the sprout. Wish me luck!!

This is my favorite book right now! It's full of tips to grow plants out of your kitchen scraps. Right now I'm trying to sprout an avocado. It's supposed to take a few weeks, but it'll hopefully look like the second picture soon! Wish me luck :)
