Yes, I know. This recipe missed the recent challenge... but the sweet potato insisted to be cooked and eaten!

I love salmon and avocado on an "everything" bagel! My recipe has cream cheese, slivered red onion, capers, avocado, and lemon-pepper dill seasoned baked salmon. The combination of flavors is outstanding. If someone had allergies or other issues with the "everything" mixture, a plain bagel...
I had a couple of "misfits" avocados that were almost ripe and really needed using up. They tend to be best used in something rather than eaten as is with them being "seconds" so to speak. There's usually ouly bruising or size issues with them or they have skin problems that just mean people...

At some point, I was in the mood for a snack. And I'd recently shopped at an east Asian market. I didn’t want to wait to cook up the rice (waiting defeats the point of a snack), so I decided, somewhat in the spirit of the Naruto roll (which also comes without rice) to make a rice-free...

Olives are a great way to liven up a salad. Their bitter, tang works particularly well with ingredients such as anchovy, avocado, bacon, celery, cheese (particularly feta and goat’s cheese), chicken, eggs, tomatoes and potatoes. Here are two salads which use some of those ingredients:
We've just had another of those really hot days and combined with the smoke problems, I've not been too well or able to do much at all. So when hubby spotted this recipe I thought why not? After all, the only thing that needed cooking was the brown rice and I could use the microwave for that...
It looked fine from the outside. But cutting into it was difficult and the thin end was so full of these things that it couldn't be eaten. Even eating the blunt end was a challenge to avoid the 'crunchie bits'. It tasted fine.
I washed the skin on the inside carefully to show some of the problem.
I chose this recipe because I was intrigued to see what happens if you replace an egg with half an avocado when making an omelette. Well, I messed up really because I tried to make the omelette in the way I was taught (by a French chef) which is to use a fork to drag the edges of the omelette to...
Uses for Guacamole:
A dip for tortillas.
A dip for a veggie platter.
A dressing/topping for quesadillas.
Use this instead of straight up avocado for avocado toast.
Just spoon it in directly into your mouth. (This time, this was my use!)
Obviously, scale this recipe up for the number...
What do you do with/how do you serve your avocados?
I like to fill them with tuna, crab or shrimp salad, avocado toast, or a strawberry, avocado salad with poppy seed dressing, to name a few. How about you?
Recently came across these long-neck avocados, grown in Florida. That's a lot of Guac &...
