Scrumptious Sundays:Lawn Mower Cupcakes, Cinnamon French Toast Bake, & Avocado Salsa


I hope this makes up for last weeks lack of a Scrumptious Sunday, since I have not just 1.. not just 2.. but I have 3 dishes to show ya!!

So to start off, my lovely work was having a Grass Cut Season Kickoff BBQ. I have to elaborate a little since I haven't mentioned much about my job. I work for an awesome company that works with bank owned homes helping them keep the properties kept up and clean so they can be sold. April 1st starts when we will be getting a lot, and I mean A LOT, of grass cut work orders. I have been wanting to do all I can with my lovely mixer so I decided to make Lawn Mower cupcakes.


I was running short on time so I used box mixes (I know, bad Megan.) I did however, attempt a new frosting from All Recipes. It was a buttercream frosting. The only thing I did different was added green food coloring. I will say this frosting is a thinner frosting so it did not work as well with my frosting grass tip as I would have liked, but I thought it was tasty. After I frosted I assembled my candy (Hersheys Nuggets, Reeses Pieces, and Twizlers) to look like little lawn mowers. Cute, aye?

Next on my list was this delightful breakfast dish I found on from Pillsbury. 

This Cinnamon French Toast Bake was absolutely amazing!! I seriously can't wait to make it again. The only thing I didn't add were the nuts and the powdered sugar.
I loved it!!

Last but not least was a last minute toss in of ingredients, which I shall call Avocado Salsa.

My phone camera does not really show the tastiness that this was (since I took a picture when my bowl was nearing empty.) I threw the following into my food processor:
3 roma tomatoes
2 avocados
2 chiles
Some green onions
A few cloves of garlic
And lemon juice

It certainly helped ease my late night hunger.

I hope you all enjoyed this weeks treats!!
