Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta

Is today easier? I guess a little. It’s hard not to dwell when life throws a stick in your spokes. The Hubs said to me just now, “are you ok?”, and I said, “yes, just trying to put one foot in front of the other.” Does it feel stupid and strange to be posting about bruschetta right now? Sure, but what else am I supposed to do? Cry more? Miss her more? Feel worse than I already do? I don’t think any of those things are possible.

To be perfectly honest, I can’t eat. The grief is making me sick to my stomach. Fortunately my extreme productivity the last few weeks is paying off, and I have a lot of posts “in the can” for the most part. So please enjoy this recipe. Do not associate it with my poor doggie leaving this earth. She was still here when I made it. Just make it for your friends and family, and be happy that you have people to share it with.
