My new love….

Posted by mandyhuckins on March 4, 2010

Avocado.  Well, this isn’t exactly new….I have been loving them for about a year now.  I can’t believe there was ever a time that I didn’t want to eat them!  My favorite way to consume them is sliced and drizzled with good olive oil and then sprinkled with sea salt and McCormick’s Montreal Steak pepper grinder.  Wow!

That is like heaven on a plate!

Today I made a delicious sandwich for lunch.  I cut a pita in half and then opened it.  I slathered some Hummus in the pocket and then stuffed it with thinly sliced cucumbers and red onions, some of these avocado slices and arugula.  Mmmmmmmm!

Bonus – how green and pretty this is – I will have to make it again on St. Patty’s Day. 

Note: I just realized how health conscious this post sounds – please know that is not true.  Just yesterday I polished off a half a bag of Doritos while I was lounging in bed all afternoon because I didn’t feel well.  For dinner, I had my husband bring home a sourdough Philly cheese(less)steak sandwich and fries for dinner.  AND I ate a pinwheel cookie for dessert.
