Avocado Pie and Watermelon Margaritas

Inspiration for this pie came from Julie and her “United States of Pie” book.  The recipe looked so intriguing that I had to try it, though I spiced it up with pecans and cinnamon in the crust, and I added a lot more lime juice and a heap of lime zest, so it came out like a key lime pie, just with an undertone of creamy and rich avocado.  Josh was skeptical, Jack was skeptical, I have to admit even I was skpetical, but we went for it.

Jack helped bang on the package of pecans, you know, just to crunch them up a little more.IMG_0876

Becuase avocados are from Maine, right?IMG_0883

Jack is always mindful of the blender when it’s out, bracing himself for the space shuttle like sound it will make when powered on.IMG_0886
