These two recipes are not part of my 30 day challenge, but I made them last week and had to share! First up is a guacamole recipe that I just kind of threw together because we had a bunch of avocados sitting around the house. There is no excuse to waste a bunch of beautiful, yummy avocados! The measurements on this are estimated because I kind of just threw it together. Guacamole is great because you don't really need an exact recipe, just the right ingredients.This also was made just for me so I didn't want to make too big of a batch.

2 avocados
1/2 large tomato
1/4 cup (heaping) red onion
1 tbls. fresh cilantro
1 tbls. lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
Use these measurements as a starting point and adjust to how you like it! Chop everything up and combine!

Next up are oven roasted zucchini and yellow squash. Zucchini and squash I believe are vegetables designed to be cooked. For me they just don't cut it raw. For dinner the other night my mom and I had some BBQ salmon for dinner, so I decided to throw together some veggies for a side.

Oven Roasted Zucchini and Squash
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
2 tbls. olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Cut up the zucchini and squash to even thicknesses. Then spread them out on a cookie sheet. Cover the vegetables in olive oil and season. Then top with Parmesan cheese and set in the oven for 25 minutes at 350.
