guac that rocks!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend friends. 

Playoff hockey kicked off here in Syracuse and the hubs is now on the road for the weekend.

I am going to head back to Canada to "tie up some loose ends".

Following our 30 week doctors appointment we both realized how fast our due date is arriving and that there are a few things we still need to figure out as well as purchase. To be honest, I am mostly concerned about having a car seat and some diapers ....

My plan is to visit my midwife, naturopath and pre-registering at the hospital as well as purchasing a few items so that we are (mostly) ready.... just in case.

But before I head home I want to share some avocado love - this time in the form of guacamole!

Before friday's first playoff game we did some tailgating. It was a gorgeous warm and sunny evening to be outside and enjoy good eats, drinks and company.

This was my contribution to our little soiree - delicious {+ healthy} guacamole.

Ingredients:

Note:these amounts are based on the batch that I made but obviously feel free to adjust.

  • 5 avocados
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/8 cup cup red onion
  • Handful of fresh cilantro
  • Dash of red chili flakes
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • Sea salt + pepper (to taste)

Method:

  1. Cut, peel + pit your avocados. place the flesh from all of the avocados into a small bowl. Using a fork mash the avocados until they reach your desired consistency. I prefer mine to be a little chunky.
  2. Dice the tomatoes and mince the garlic and red onion.
  3. Add the juice of your limes, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, red chili flakes, cilantro, sea salt + pepper to the avocados and combine well.
  4. Serve with whatever you love to dip into your guacamole!
