Birthday Guacamole

For my 24th birthday on Tuesday night, I had some gorgeous people over to the apartment for fresh margaritas, my favorite Octoberfest beer and snacks. I had picked the ripe tomatoes and about six cups of fresh basil the night before, so I whipped up pesto and hummus to go with tortilla chips and vegetables. I also struggled with homemade guacamole.

Avocados (that weren't quite ripe enough), fresh tomatoes, red onion, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.

I had so much fun. I feel very lucky to have so many great people in my life who came to help me celebrate. Also having a cute and caring boyfriend who buys me birthday roses and other sweet gifts doesn’t hurt either.

In other news, I had fun taking care of this precious puppy while our friends were out of town.
