A Recipe By Blonde Justice

Start by slicing a little bit of avocado for the tiny salad you're having for dinner.

As you're eating dinner, start to wonder what you should do with the rest of the avocado.

Try googling "how to store avocado" and then "how to store avocado cut."

Find out you need lemon or lime juice to make the avocado not brown. Wonder whether you might have some lemon juice. The bottled kind.

Look through fridge, realize you don't have any lemon juice. How could you? You think there's a lemon juice fairy that would have come and put that in the fridge? Because it's not something you would ever think to buy in the grocery store.

Google guacamole recipes. Realize you don't have cilantro, onions, or tomatoes.

Look through the fridge for anything that might have any kind of citric acid in it.

Find a half jar of peach salsa in the fridge.

Cube up the avocado. Throw it in a tiny bowl. Pour some peach salsa over it.

Stir. Try to use the back of your spoon to smoosh up some of the avocado, but still leave it a little chunky. Toss a pinch of lavender salt on the top, stir that in too.

Throw a piece of flatbread in the toaster oven.

Spoon the peach guacamole on the warm flatbread wedges. Yum, yum, yum.

Congratulate yourself on being a genius in the kitchen. Write about it to your blawg.

  3. I read once that if you leave the pit in the avocado, it won't brown as fast. I usually just eat the whole thing, so I don't know if that's true.

  4. I love avocade, that sounds delicious.

    Another good way to eat avocado is to mix a little soy sauce and wasabi, and dip the chucks of avocado in the soy/wasabi, and just eat them. It's kind of like eating an avocado roll from a good sushi place, only without, you know, the rice or the seaweed.

  5. Here is a salad recipe that would not require you to store your avocado - you can eat it instead:)

    Slice 1 tomato in relatively small cubes. Then, do the same for your avocado. Put both in a bowl, add 1 tb spoon of olive oil, 1 tb spoon of balsamic vinegar. Mix, then add some black pepper.

    If you have more than 1 person eating, increase the tomato / avocado content by 1 each. Goes great with red or white wine.
