Well, it was as hot as the dickens today, and I felt like I was melting. I joke about that, but I really felt like it today...I know my limits People...and TODAY, I was there! Anyhow, I digress! I wanted to write to you today about my deep abiding love that I have for avocado, the fruit and the color. I didn't really start enjoying this culinary sensation until my twenties, so I will begin with the color.
|Very similar to mine...except mine was in better condition!|
|Now, isn't that GORGEOUS!|
So, I relocated to Orange County (Huntington mainly), and I started to go to brunch on a regular basis. I would eat at a specific spot on Main St. and there was this omelet that was to die for! It had three (yes, three!) cheeses and one of the other ingredients was avocados. They put so much it there that it was almost sinful. I was hooked. We never really had avocados while I was growing up so tasting them then was as if I was awakened to this THING that defied all that was expected. The creamy texture ALWAYS brought a smile to my face. It did even this morning when Josh made us brunch!!! It is actually food (a fruit, just in case you were wondering) that is a good fat and compliments so many things. I put it in salad (of course), burritos, tacos, on top of enchiladas, on sandwiches, and the list goes on! I have also eaten it right out of the skin. If you like guacamole, if you leave the pits in the dip, it will turn brown at a snails pace, if even at all.

So, there you have it! I love it all. Whether I am devouring it in my meal, or painting my wall with its color. Avocado has, and will always be, one of my FAVORITE things!!!
Til next time,
