Creamy Spinach and Avocado Pasta

I'm all about using fresh ingredients and finding ways to eat food that makes me feel like I ate something healthy and nourishing for my body. I've browsed through Pinterest (follow me there) several times looking for such healthy options and I've been amazed at how easy and tasty so many of the meals there look. The first time I made this meal for my kids it was a huge success (yay!). They ended up eating all their food and loving it because it gave them green mustaches.  hahaha If my kids like it, then it is a winner recipe.

Since this is a true and tried recipe, I am about to share how easy it is to cook make Creamy Spinach and Avocado Pasta.

{Free Pattern} How to Crochet a Tic-Tac-Toe Board

Hi Friends! I designed a crochet tic-tac toe board game for my kids so we could have it available at all times. It is an easy crochet game to make in an afternoon to pack for a road-trip or airplane trip. You can also use it to take it with you to a restaurant to have something to do while waiting for the food.  Who doesn't love a game of tic-tac-toe? We store ours in our game cabinet to play once we are done with our homeschool day. 

This reusable tic-tac-toe is made of cotton yarn so that we can save paper. You can customize it to any colors you would like.  You could do reds and pinks, blues and aquas, there are so many possibilities. Let me know in the comments what colors you would choose to do.

You can make this crochet game for yourself, road trips, or to gift for birthday parties. There are so
many possibilities!!!

You could also use the instructions for this board to make a Checkers board and game as well. Just crochet a larger board.
