Cinco De Mayo Celebrators!


Heesh here.... "Da biped has promised to share her prize winning Quacamole recipe wif her bloggie friends on Sunday! But in order to make good quacamole you MUST have good, ripe avacados. To ensure (insure) dat your avacados are ripe, da biped says we need to buy them tomorrow. She says to buy da rock hard ones, not the squishy black ones. She says dat da squishy ones have been pinched by mean shoppers (we think its da same shoppers that insist on pinching loaves of bread and tomatoes). If you have a choice, buy da avacado wif da bumpy skin, not the smooth kind. She also says to put your pretty avocados in a plain brown paper sack and close it kinda like a sack lunch. Dat traps in da gas from the avocados and hastens da ripening. Be sure to leave it in a safe place so there are no avocado hockey games. Do not refrigorate.

avacados needed for 2 people ....3 medium/large
for 3 people ....4 medium/large
for 10 or more people ....3 medium/large (if 10 people were to show up at our house we'd be under the sofa wif our quacamole)"

We think avocado pinchers are the same people who pinch cats! Teri said there was a kitty who came into the cat hospital where she works that likes refried beans, cuz he was dumped at a taco bell and that's what they fed him, mol

Thank your Mom for telling our Mom how to find a good avocado and how to make it ripe she didn't know.

PS: How do you tell if it is ripe?

My Mommie loves avocados! And we agree, the bumpy-skinned small ones are much betterer than the big smooth green ones.

In Malaysia, avocado is called 'Lidah Buaya', means, the tongue of alligator!

It takes about four days in a paper sack for a rock hard avocado to ripen. It is tempting to squeeze (pinch) da avocado to see if its soft but not really necessary. When you cut your avocado it should be the consistency of a cube of firm butter. If its a bit hard just put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds and it will soften up.
