    I’d probably make over classic chicken soup into something more exotic. I love it with hominy, lime and cilantro, topped with avocado. Your meal looks delicious!

      I know, we dumped all our favorites in this rice bowl and it was SO good! You are a woman after my own heart, love that you have the same favorites!
      Am I seeing you in a few weeks? I better be! Me & Brie (haha rhymes) are SUPER excited to meet YOU!

    I love Mac & Cheese… that’s pretty retro right? haha I give it a twist by using healthier ingredients when possible, like quinoa pasta and laughing cow cheeses, and adding a ton of veggies to it! Mushrooms, peas, whatever I have and need to use up quickly!

    Probably my favorite retro recipe is one that calls for Jello. I’m not sure how I’d make it more modern, but I do know that I’d boil the water in my Farberware saucepan 😉

    Literally, this is the best recipe I’ve seen all week. Totally making it this weekend. I have turned into an avocado freak! And who would have guessed up a blt for the bowl. love it! Now need to peak at your ague fresco recipe. In Mexico for the summer and these drinks are everywhere!

  6. Betsy Barnes says

    One of my favorite retro recipes is a pasta skillet meal with ground beef. A great way to make it modern would be to use ground turkey or chicken and fresh tomatoes. Also, a sauce with chopped veggies would make it healthy too :)
