While I was searching around on for a new BBQ Avocado recipe. I came across one that met my theme of the month and had me smiling from ear to ear.

You see, my husband and I are four weeks away from taking off on a jet plane. Following a dream of ours on a road trip through southern Italy!

Eeek! Yes, you read that right Italy!

Since booking our dream trip to Italy we are drinking, eating, speaking and picturing nothing but the European boot in our minds.

Italian-Style BBQ Avocado Recipe

The recipe is simple, and you most likely have all the ingredients on hand.
