Happy Guacamole Day!

16 Sep

mmm mmm boy do I love me some guacamole!  I never had it until right before grad school went I went on a trip to Yosemite with my BFF Lisa.  Man, that was a fun trip, eh Lisa?

Bellies probably full of guac

Anywho, after that I used to make it with my roommate all dee time and I looove it.  The only tricky part is figuring out if the avocado is ripe enough.  Go here to learn about the forehead-cheek-nose test.

I am also proud to say that my bf didn’t really eat guacamole before he met me, and he only really likes “my guacamole” (no that’s not innuend0, I just make a good guac).

Here’s how I make guac:

2 avacados pitted and smashed

2 roma tomatoes chopped

a bunch of dashes of Old Bay or Chili Powder

1 garlic clove

a healthy sprinkling of taco shredded cheese

several squirts of lime juice

Combine and enjoy.  Sorry I don’t have accurate measures, but that’s how I roll.  I’m not baking here, people.

Lucky for us, we can celebrate Guacamole Day with some coupons!  Wholly Guacamole, which makes really good pre-made guac, has 3 coupons for us, but act fast!  Go their Facebook page for a $2 coup (go to the left and look for the coupons link; or you can go here for a $1.50 coup;  and finally, if you are new to register, you can get a $1.50 coup here.

Whether you make it from scratch or pick up some Wholly Guacamole, get those “good fats” by celebrating Guacamole Day early and often!
