Cinco de Mayo isn’t until tomorrow, but I’ve already got Mexican food on my mind. This means, as is usually the case when I have Mexican on the mind, that I’m jones-ing hard for guacamole. Lots and lots of guacamole. Why guacamole? Shall I recite its merits for you? There are too many to list! But for starters, it’s easy to make, it’s relatively healthy, and it’s a satisfying dinner substitute when no one feels like cooking. And, you know…it’s super delicious.
Four large HASS avocados, one tomato, and half a red onion produced a dauntingly gigantic bowl of guacamole, but Dan and I inhaled every last bite. I was sad to see the last smear disappear into Dan’s mouth, but tomorrow is a new day, and that new day will be filled with more guacamole and al pastor pork. Get excited!
