Avocado and Lime Toast Recipe

In a previous post, I reviewed a Mickey Mouse 90th anniversary toaster. After I made the toast, I decided to make avocado toast using the bread.

For the avocado spread, I created my favorite kind of spread for avocado toast: avocado and lime. It’s a very easy to create and is very flavorful.

Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Toaster Reveal and Review

A few weeks ago, while at JcPenny’s, I walked by an end cap that had Mickey Mouse 90th anniversary items for sale. After browsing, I decided to purchase a Mickey Mouse toaster. I needed a new toaster because I do not own one and I currently use my oven to make toast. Using the oven has proven to be very impractical and difficult to use, so I needed a toaster.

It’s near October and that means Halloween is right is coming! That also means it’s time to start buying or even making costumes for a Halloween party or for a child.

Even though I do not consider myself an expert in costumes, I’ve sewn for a hobby over 20 years and do make costumes to occasionally wear to my local renaissance festival and, sometimes, to pop culture conventions.

Since I’m used to sewing and budgeting for buying fabric and supplies for new sewing projects, I wanted to share five tips to picking a Halloween costume that I don’t see discussed very often. Even though I learned these tips from sewing costumes and sewing in general, they can be used for simply buying a new costume for a Halloween party when you are on a budget or want to be frugal with your money.
