BAKED SHRIMP STUFFED AVOCADOS


I’m sharing another delicious and easy recipe today in partnership with the California Avocado Commission. I am so happy avocados are in season now. We’ve been eating about one a day in our house.



I do feel very fortunate to live in California, where avocados are abundant. We had some friends visiting us from Pittsburgh this week and they were telling us how hard it is to get avocados where they live. They ate their fill of avocados while they were here and I even sent them home with a bag.
