After a week of eating mostly stuffed grape leaves, grilled eggplant salad and hummus I need a change of scenery -- specifically, a change of ethnicity.

Immediately, I thought of Guacamole and Pico De Gallo. What better to much on than Guac and chips when the thermometer outside registers 105?


2 Hass Avocados
1/3 of a large red onion
1 large clove of garlic
2/3 of a jalapeno
1 medium tomato
1/2 a juicy lime
Sea Salt
Fresh Cracked Pepper

The rave reviews:   "Ahh--mazing", " so delicious" " I want more"

In other news:

Life has been occupied by working out, job hunting, spending time with good ol' mom and prepping for my friend's wedding.

Is it just me or is there an insane amount of prep work involved in being a female guest to a wedding??
-- find a dress,  matching shoes, matching accessories ( jewelry, clutch , hairpiece etc), get your hair done, makeup done....

I'm opting to do my own hair and makeup this weekend, hopefully it stands up in comparison to all the girls who will be getting it all done professionally.


  1. What a wonderful, fresh looking guacamole - I love all of the ingredients you use here and wish I could sample it through the computer! :)

  2. I love guacamole...there's nothing better! Great job and good luck with the job hunt!

  3. Guacamole is a wonderful snack, especially when it is sweltering outside. Yours does look awesome with those big chunks of avocados. Yum!
    Have fun at the wedding this weekend!

  4. Great looking guac! Definitely might have to keep this in mind for game day tomorrow =)

  5. Yep a week of Middle Eastern food can take its toll. Next time I'm feeling that way I'll be sure to make some of your fresh and tasty guacamole :-)

  6. Guacamole is so good. I love how it's always the hit of any party!
