I don't think I've ever had avocado, all I know is what they look like and that they're full of fat, but the healthy kind. How do you find a good one?

We've planty of avocado here (in fact... we have all type of fruits: the ones that grow here, and the ones that grow in the other side of the planet. For good and for bad). I don't like the avocado on its own... specially the feeling of it: it's like butter. But I like "guacamole" for the nachos (avocado turned into a paste with onion and tomato, and some salt). Yummy!!!  :biggrin:

I don't Markus, I guess I'll have to practice that yet :-) As I never liked to eat avocado before. I started to like it only recently. :)
I used to feel about the avocado same way like Luthy but nowadays I quite enjoy the taste on it's own. Sometimes I add a little bit of salt on it.
But then again, who does.

Thank you both, miladies!

Guess I'll try some avocado: The purist way with bread and salt, and then the guacamole style - but only if I'm allowed to mix in some chillis!

Cheers!

I'm used to buy them in a simple supermarket. Then usually I have to wait some days until they become softer. I saw dark green ones and dark greenish-brownish ones too, and both are fine. :)

I have another recipe for guacamole, my Queen. But that belongs to another topic. ^_^

I had the brownish one and that one was old :)

Please share your recipe, Bee Queen, because I am curious. I am trying to get an "onion" free guacamole recipe that still tastes good. But raw onion does not agree with my stomach :(

Hey folks,

last weekend I tried some avocado. :thumbup: I did an experimental veggie barbecue and barbecued some avovado. Nice, but next time I'll had some acid - lemon juice or such, that should make them perfect. :)

I'm planning to put up a small grill on my birthday celebration with the family that will be reserved for plants exclusively. No more worries about contaminations and lots of barbecued vegetables for me. :wOOt:

Cheers!

Yeah! I always felt uncomfortable about my stuff lying next to the meat or being turned with the same cutlery. (Though I still accept using the same pots, plates and cutlery after washing them. No double kitchens. Yet. :ninja: :lol3:) And I was so happy with the barbecued peppers and eggplants and tofu and whatnot that I decided that I don't want anything else for that feast, not even barbecued cheese. :)

Apart from that it's strawberry time for me. :wOOt:

Cheers!

Right now: Birdfood with fresh garden-flower-petals. And last night we had rolls from fried eggplant-stripes, stuffed with red lentils and sage. :wOOt:

Cheers!

Indeed, it was. :) We had some bread and red wine with it.

Yours sounds extremely tasty, too. :thumbup:

Cheers!

Hey folks,

for a couple of weeks now I've been eating fresh rose-hip-halves as a topping to my daily bird-food. some I harvested at aour cottage, some from other sources - I even found some black ones. :ninja: :wOOt:

Oh, and last Sunday I made a Spanish tortilla for my dad and myself. :biggrin:

Cheers!

No, not at all! only that I think it curious that you made an Spanish tortilla (with kartoffeln and Zweibel, if it's the really Spanish one).

Oh, and I'm sure that the "Spanish tortilla" is well known in other countries, but... what about the "French tortilla"? We call "French" the omelette with nothing else but eggs (and some salt). This "tortilla", I supose only we call it French!  :evil2:

Hehe, yeah, I've read about that. And the German "Bauernfrühstück" ("peasants' breakfast") is quite similar, too. But what I did was really a variation of a Spanish tortilla - with potatoes, onions and eggs. I added a small zucchini from our cottage and some chillis from my roof-deck, but I suppose it still counts. :)

Cheers!
