Laziness took over again this week! Less work, more vacation! Yes,well… I deserve it! I spent all my time with Costin, stayed indoors and played computer games all day. I played Fallout 3, he played RAGE, just perfect! By the way, I finished Fallout 3 today, hehe! 😀 Maybe I won’t feel the need to play other PC games too soon and start working! No more going to bed at 3 a.m! …Who am I kidding?! I will probably keep on doing that. 😛

Other than that, I was planning on posting the gluten-free vegan pancakes recipe today I told you about on Facebook, but I just realized I forgot the recipe. I’m not sure about the quantities of some ingredients and the recipe turned out too perfect not to share it with you in its exact form! So, I will try it again this weekend and will post it most likely on Monday. 🙂

Creamy Avocado Pasta

I cooked a lot lately and I have so many great recipes to share with you. Hopefully, my laziness will soon fade away and I will start working as I should!Now about this creamy avocado pasta recipe, I loved it! I just love avocados so why not use them as a creamy sauce for pasta! This creamy avocado pasta recipe is just perfect for summer. It’s light, full of flavors, green and healthy! I made it vegan and gluten-free too!

Enjoy 🙂
