I have so many different blog post ideas rolling around in my cluttered brain right now. A recipe for guacamole, pictures of the yard in bloom, my memory quilt for my dad, our weekend so far, etc. One at a time, eh.

My Version of My Mom's Kick-ass Guacamole

2-3 avocados
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 small tomato
1 clove of garlic minced
lime juice
sea salt
jalapeƱos (if you like it spicy!)

This is a completely ish recipe. If you want to add more or use less, it still works. It's very forgiving. You could use garlic powder, add less onion, etc. Mix (with a potato masher) all of the above ingredients together. Use just a little lime juice and salt though. If you live some place awesome (not NJ) then you can find cans of diced jalapeƱos to use. Me, I had to roast mine. I used one in the guacamole and the other two in the home made enchilada sauce. Enchilada sauce is really easy too. (Thanks Said, for teaching me!) Let me know if you want that recipe.

I love the roasting chilies outside. What a good idea!
