I don’t know what’s up with The Husband lately. He’s either finally maturing in the food department or I’ve just simply worn him down after years of making things outside his dietary comfort zone.
This is another recent meal I served that he raved about.

I’ve never been a guacamole fan, and large chunks of avocado kind of gross me out.
