I did it. I swore I’d never have the patience for it… swore it was against my religion to do so… promised myself it needed to happen organically, without an inkling of structure but…
I finally measured out the ingredients for my guacamole mix!!!
Wait ! What did you think I was going to say!? Holy cow people!
Anyways, I did it. In a shot-glass no less, and endured the most judge-y of eye-brow raises from my husband just so I could finally give you guys an accurate description of how I take an avocado and turn it into something undeniably wonderful. Something that not only has to be licked clean from the bowl, but also any surface it touches. Like the fork you’ll use to mash it. I used to mash my avocados with a butter knife. But licking them was a tad dangerous… And here I go again on a lovely tangent.
Jenn and knives: a recipe for disaster. Though lately the bulk of my injuries are from things like running into the frame of my bed, getting overzealous with the scissors, and poking myself in the eye with a mascara wand.
