Heh… I’m on a role, aren’t I? It’s been over a year, and I’ve finally made my way back into the blogsphere. I think I need to start keeping myself accountable. I’ve had a lot of things happen within the past year: I got a boyfriend, we went on a lot of vacations, we moved into a new neighborhood, I’m an auntie, we’ve finally settled into our new apartment annnnnd I’m an auntie! (See below for a picture of the cutie patootie.)
As I’ve been getting myself settled, I realized that I haven’t been on my blog in literally* forever. And as I’ve been cooking more and more—our friends have even started a cookbook club that we’re happily a part of—this is the perfect time for a reboot.
*Exaggerated. It’s only been 14 months.
Today, I leave you with a really simple recipe that doesn’t take a lot of brain cells or skill. I make this often when I’m feel guac-y. It’s a serving for one person as a snack, if you’re a food monster like me. It makes about a cup of guacamole… a very fresh and limey guacamole. The best thing is that you only need four ingredients.
Serving(s): 1 person
Time: 10 minutes
What You’ll Need:
- 1 big and ripe avocado
- 1/2 juicy lime
- handful of chopped cilantro
- 2 pinches of salt
How You’ll Do It:
- Cut the avocado in half, take out the pit and use a spoon to scrap all that goodness into your pestle and mortar. You can also use a small bowl. Make sure you’re clear of that stemmy thing that likes to fall out.
- Take you pestle (or spoon) and mash the avocado. I like mine chunky, so I didn’t beat the avocado up too much.
- Once at desired chunkiness, squeeze in lime juice, salt and chopped cilantro, and then mix away until everything has been evenly distributed.
- Go to the couch (bring your fresh guacamole and favorite tortilla chips), turn on your favorite show or movie, and munch-munch-munch away!
Note: I like Late July’s sublime-flavored tortilla chips. Clearly, I love my lime.
