Bacon Avocado Crostini

**I know we usually do Paleo Mondays but, to be honest, vacation kicked my butt! So, enjoy this delicious crostini recipe instead and we’ll get back to the paleo goodness next week!**

So, we totally buy our avocados at Costco. When you have a five year old who eats 1-2 per day, you need to buy in bulk. But, sometimes he just isn’t feeling it and we are left with a bunch of avocados and no idea what to do with them. We can only eat so much guacamole after all. I was having friends over recently and decided to put them to good use by making bacon avocado crostini.

Dinner Done with #CookClassico

One of my personal goals this year is to become healthier.  This includes eating out less and focusing more on healthy, home cooked meals.
