Weather: 34 degrees, above freezing(!), wintry mix
What I’m listening to: Bebo Norman, Christmas: From the Realms of Glory
Confession: the California girl in me is having trouble giving up her avocados, especially since it has miraculously warmed up to above-freezing outside. If I come across avocados that are in good condition and are less than $2.50 a piece here in Alaska, I can’t resist buying just one. Then, I find every reason in the world to eat said avocado – sandwiches, salads, tacos, and, of course, guacamole. Perfectly ripe ones don’t need much help to be delicious and a simple guacamole can be made with just a little squeeze of lime and some salt, or stir in a tablespoon of your favorite salsa.
But, it’s the holidays, and everything deserves to be dressed up a bit this time of year. Serve this with chips, or as a topping for your favorite Mexican food dish, like Christmas tamales or enchiladas. And come back in February to make a big batch and serve this for the Superbowl. Life is good.
