17 In Misc


We are doing a very quick trip to Tulsa this weekend for some vintage shopping.  I'll see everyone on Monday!  Have a super weekend!  Before I take off, here is my own version of Guacamole.  I don't know what's gotten into me lately, I can't stay out of the kitchen….

Guac ingred. 

There must be thousands of versions of guacamole.  I like mine simple and straightforward with just a little bite.  This is my own recipe that has evolved over the years.

2-3 ripe Hass avocados

1/2 of a medium white onion finely chopped

1 clove of garlic minced 

fresh lime to squeeze

salt and pepper to taste

Peel and mash avocados with a fork, add  onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper to taste, add as much fresh lime juice as you can stand, and serve!

Finished gauc 

Happy 4th!!!!

    i prefer my guacamole chunkier, too (rather than pureed smooth w/ that almost-slimy texture). this looks yummy! i must try your version.
    i’ve been enjoying your recipe and pet posts.

    I have to say that I actually haven’t met a guacamole here at home (ABQ, NM) or in the Southwest that I didn’t like. We add lettuce and garlic powder instead of onion and pepper, but I’m sure yours is delicious!
