Default The Avocado Chronicles

Date: July 9th, 2008
Meal: Dinner
Type of avocado consumed: Hass (possibly a Lamb Hass)

Comments: This avocado was the ideal companion to my spicy, South American style rotisserie chicken. A winning combo. I ate with such zeal that I abandoned the fork and knife midway through and finished the meal with my hands.

7/9
Having picked up take out chicken with Yoon earlier, should I be surprised to see such a similarity in how it was eaten at home?
I smeared half a Hass on a couple pieces of oat nut bread and at half the chicken myself. Eating alone, I saw no need for utensils from the start.

How about I downed some avocado oil straight from the green glass bottle?? Maybe I will try that one later....

Seriously, gentleman avocado oil is worthy of invention on all the meat and yeah--our greens too! That and mac nut oil--separately of course!

Incredible timing, Yoon since I have suddenly found myself on avocado avenue.

July 9th:

Lunch: type of avocado unknown
Comments: addition to grilled chicken salad. Clearly the standout in an otherwise tearfully boring meal.

Dinner: type of avocado unknown
Comments: This sushi meal highlighted avocado in all its glorious flexibility: as the thick, silky base for a wasabi guacamole topping to tuna carpaccio, diced up with apples and tucked underneath tuna tar tar, and blended with mayo and goat cheese for a scrumptious dip to fried fish.

After two sapporos, I too dropped my chopsticks and went trolling with my greedy little piglets.

Coming up today at lunch: organic hass avocado sliced up with steamed baby summer squash, beet greens, tomato and salt and pepper chicken.
Comments: I am rolling in monounsaturated fat.

Thanks for reminding me Margie--
I too had my avocado alongside some delicious stirfried greens and grilled salmon for lunch yesterday.

Why yes Allen, avocados are at an all time low in NYC

Messy meals eaten with hands=supremely awesome. I had bits of avocado on my face and under my fingernails.

Thank you for logging Margie! This will be tough to beat.

Apparently so! The grassroots movement to increase global avocado consumption starts here.

There was guacomole on my BBQ Pork Nachos at lunch today.
