Today I am venturing to one of my favorite spots in San Francisco, Dolores Park. Dolores Park is beautiful and amazingly fun on weekend afternoons. Dozens of people and their pets come out and enjoy yard games, picnics, and cocktails while enjoying the art of people watching.

It is the perfect accompaniment to any meal, twisting the old potato salad into something funky and original that will have you begging for more!
I am obsessed with avocados! They are one of my favorite foods in the world. Yesterday, I wanted to make a snack to enjoy while I watched my beloved Nittany Lions.
