Well, we have received quite a dump of snow this past while.....so our first day of Spring is rather white, instead of the hoped for green. Here's to hoping it doesn't snow on Easter....eek!
Anyways, I've been enjoying my month of green things; Kale, smoothies, and now AVOCADOS!!! I'm like totally on a kick with them right now! And when I say kick, I mean I have bought them two grocery shops in a row....I know, I am crazy like that!
I've always liked avocados. I like them plain with lemon juice and salt and pepper, I like them with cottage cheese, and my all-time favorite way to eat them is in dip form, guacamole in fact. Guacamole doesn't have to be complicated at all. It seems we can "doctor things up" a lot and the food gets over-powered by the spices. (I should know, I love to add a dash of this and that...my poor husband - trying to guess what I did to certain dishes....All in the name of Science I say!) Anyways....I like my guacamole simple, to let the goodness of the green things sing for themselves. So here's my recipe.
Oh by the way....I'm still on the hunt for creme de menthe....It may not happen. Can't seem to find a size smaller than a litre. Eek! So, I may be changing up my sweet treat this month. I WILL make the tart someday though.....as soon as find some creme de menthe.. (back to guacamole now.....)
