Several of you asked for my guacamole recipe. I never measure anything when I make it, so I’ll do the best I can.
Scoop one ripe avocado out of the skin and put in a bowl. Mash it with a fork, but leave some lumps in.
Add 1 – 2 tablespoons finely diced red onion, 2 tablespoons finely diced tomato (with seeds removed), a couple of teaspoons fresh lime juice, about 1/8 of a teaspoon of garlic powder (not garlic salt), and about 1/2 teaspoon of chili paste, and blend together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour or two for the flavors to blend.
Chili paste — it comes in a tube and looks like this:
You could use chili powder or chopped up jalapeños if you can’t find the chili paste.
Our favorite way to eat guacamole is as a dip for mini salt-free pretzels. Yum!
Thanks for all the New Year wishes. Lucy, the KOARC and I had a nice quiet celebration last night with movies and champagne for us and catnip for Lucy.
I did cook some shrimp plain for Lucy. I cooled, it, cut it up, and offered it to her. She said:
“What? You expect me to eat this?”
Clearly, she is not a fan of the shrimp.
I did a little spinning today on my Good Vibrations roving. Here’s half of it all plied up into sock yarn:
I actually finished that last week. I’m working on the second half now. And that reminds me, I can show you a very cool gift the KOARC gave me for Christmas:
A digital scale. Woo! You can set it to ounces or grams — currently it is set on grams.
Okie doke — I’ll be back tomorrow with the final drawing for the Heifer project. Happy New Year!
