Today is Miss Jeanne’s 50th birthday! Fancy that.
I don’t even know what to say except for the fact that over the past few years, she has been a constant source of encouragement to me and she gives me a reason to be homesick for Texas.
Since we can’t all appear on her doorstep today with champagne and pinatas, we’re celebrating around the country, potluck-style. Which is exactly the way that we would be doing it if we were all together.
For this party, I felt that it would only be fitting to bring guacamole. It’s our go-to dip of choice and pretty much everyone is always excited to see you walk in the door with it.
I’ve really had a yen for guacamole sans-tomatoes lately, so I decided that we would post it up that way, instead. If you want our usual recipe, check it out here.
Your grocery store haul:
- 2 avocados
- 1/2 onion
- Lime juice
- Salt and pepper
What to do:
- Hack open the avocados. Remove the skins and the pits, and dump them into a bowl. Bonus points if you pick an aesthetically pleasing bowl.
- Mash those.
- Finely chop an onion and mince the cilantro to a pulp. Incorporate.
- Juice the lime (or rock the bottle of lime juice like we usually do), salt and pepper to taste.
- Stir again and serve! And this is where you run with it.
In our most civilized moments, this has been served with tacos or enchiladas. In the more desperate moments it has appeared on toast, at breakfast with eggs or on a spoon.
You’ll know what to do.
I pinky promise swear that you will be the hit of your party or that it will be the star of your dinner table!
