a guacamole recipe

i've noticed i haven't been taking many pictures of the kids lately. or writing about the kids lately, but dear older self, don't think that that means nothing has been happening. an entire titanic load of full days have been going on. mostly good, some bad, some really bad, but i have felt so busy (and kind of blah lately) that there hasn't been time to write. but guess what? avocados are in season and i made my favorite guacamole today while everyone napped after church.

 it is such a great recipe i had to share, i've been using it for years:

3 ripe avocados
1/2 juice of a fresh lime (i don't have a juicer so i hand squeeze an entire one)
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (can subsitute dried parsley if you are out of cilantro)
1/2 red or purple onion, minced well (i use whatever onions i have around)
1 garlic clove, pressed
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taster

**ps- ty and i tried to start watching 24 on netflix because of all the rave reviews. but we just don't get it. after 5 episodes we aren't hooked and there is a lot of stuff i would rather not see or think about on there (especially if it isn't based on a true story). i am getting old and boring very quickly.  so we watched Shaun the Sheep instead. have you guys watched those with your kids? HILARIOUS.

I had no idea about the dried parsley instead of cilantro :)
Sometimes I find myself turning to the kids shows....Shaun the Sheep is funny :)We usually end up on our old favorite, the Backyardagains.
