I love guacamole. I especially love the guacamole I make. I brought it to my friend’s house to watch the Super Bowl yesterday.
Don’t worry….I will share my guacamole recipe with you because I’m nice like that. But you’ll have to wait until the end of this post. Think you can do that? Good.
I also brought my favorite slow cooker taco dip:
My friend Alicia picked up some of my favorite hot wings from our club. I was ecstatic!
I LOVE HOT WINGS.
Alicia’s husband barbecued some carne asada. I was extra bad….I topped my carne asada with hot sauce, guacamole AND taco dip:
There were only four of us but by the looks of our spread you would have thought many more were coming.
Nope, it was just the four of us. We like to eat. I love hanging out with people who like to eat….I don’t feel like such a freak. :)
The Better than Crack Brownies were a big hit by the way. Dangerous little things.
This morning I grabbed a quick breakfast of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios with almond milk and an orange:
I went to the gym to bust out my half marathon training for the day: 3 miles. I haven’t run on the treadmill in a long time so I thought I’d give it a shot. Plus I only had a certain amount of time before my Cardio Muscle class started. It was tough doing the run and the class back to back. I may have to split them up next time like I did last week.
When I got home, I ate a few dates before changing.
After a bit, I made lunch:
Whole wheat tortilla with leftover guacamole, turkey slices, broccoli slaw and lettuce. I had some grapes on the side. What a fabulous wrap! Have I mentioned that I love guacamole?
I also love my Better than Crack Brownies so I had a small piece:
After picking up the kids from school I had an apple and a Babybel cheese:
Let’s get back to the guacamole shall we? This is my favorite guacamole recipe….it’s always a hit!
My Favorite Guacamole
Recipe from The Barefoot Contessa
- 4 ripe Haas avocados
- 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
- 8 dashes hot pepper sauce (I used Tabasco and probably twice this much)
- 1/2 cup small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced
Cut the avocados in 1/2, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh out of their shells into a large bowl. (I use my hands.) Immediately add the lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
Did you make anything for Super Bowl?
