Elegant Everyday Eating: Guacamole

Did you know that squeezing an avocado with your fingers to judge if it is ready to eat is a no no?

I didn't and apparently most of us have made this mistake.  Apparently, it is recommended that you cup it in the palm of your hand and squeeze gentle.  It's ready when it's still firm but gives in to a gentle pressure.  Well, I don't know about you, but I learnt something new today.

Did you also know that the humble avocado has been found to contribute to the prevention and control of Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions.

Jeez, am I on a roll with my facts today or what?!

Thank God I love avocados, and thank God I have constant cravings for guacamole - the more lime the better, I say!

You may notice that my guacamole doesn't have any tomato added, but I still think you'll really love it, especially if you're a lover of licking tangy, salty lime off your lips.  I'm telling you, don't be shy with that lime - it's worth the extra squeeze.  Trust me!
