I spent my weekend in the kitchen.
Or at the store.
I had this great idea to make guacamole.
I normally get it from Chili's. It's delicious, but expensive. They charge a dollar for a dollop.
A dollop for me is three chips worth. THREE.
I searched the web, found several recipes.
Did you know there is about 100 different way to make guac?
Some use lime juice.
Some use lemon juice.
Some use garlic, others use white onions not red.
Then there is the whole, "is this avocado ripe enough?" thing that I've never even ever bought an avocado much less know when it's ripe or not.
I made a few different batches. None tasted the way I wanted them to taste.
I'm sick of guacamole.
My stomach has turned againest me and refuses to smell, or SEE another green dip in quite some time.
What makes this funny...
Saturday My Mom invites us over for PEA SOUP. (When I say Mom I mean my in-law. I call MY mom; Mother. For the record.)
I love Pea Soup.
I knew Mom had a ham bone and was going to make it soon. It was suppose to rain all day Sat. It didn't, it rained Sunday instead.
Well, she made a big ol'e pot of soup, homemade bread, Gloria brought her lemon bars...
I ate 2 helpings and I lost count on the bread...
Then last night Roo became a joker.
He is SO animated. I mentioned he's going to be another Jim Carrey.
And asked him to say "Let me show you something." (You need to go way back to get this...I'm talking In Living Color.)
He does, and it is JUST like Fire Marshal Bill...
Oh, man did I laugh, and the more I laughed the more he kept saying it, the more he said it the harder I laughed. The whole family was laughing and crying.
My poor stomach took a beating this weekend.
But for some reason I can't let the guacamole thing go.
I need to find a good recipe.
Anyone have any suggestions?
