Thanks to DC Striving, I have learned to embrace my avocado love. Before she came along, I only enjoyed them on salads and (obvi) in my world famous guacamolly.
You see, DC Striving and I used to work together and we live close to each other… so most nights we’d stop by Whole Foods on our walk home. It was a little ritual that I really miss. And she would frequently talk about how she’d be happy with nothing more than a baguette and avocado for dinner. I thought homegirl was crazy, until I actually succumbed – I bought a mini baguette, avocado and fizzy water and set off to try it.
SIDE NOTE: A friend of mine, *cough* TF *cough,* used you make fun of my random dinners that consisted of, say, spinach and marinara sauce… or refried beans and salsa… or garbanzo beans and, um, just garbanzo beans. So I don’t know why the concept of avocado and bread seemed totes ridic. But it did.
Well now, naturally, I’m an avocado, olive oil, and baguette fanatic. It’s the best. Crunchy, creamy, and totally satisfying. I have it about once a week, though I could probably stand to have it at least three times… especially now that I learned that a dash of lime and crushed chili pepper makes it all the better. DUH – why didn’t I think of that? H/t to A Cup of Jo for the tip.
