I love avocados. Especially when it's 10 degrees outside and all covered with snow because avocados taste like summer to me and my family. The photo above is my daughter in a fun apron with great big pockets that declares that avocado love. In her hands are Avocados from Mexico that will be a part of dinner tonight. Even in Alaska we can get gorgeous avocados for that summer flavor!
The apron is from Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store where you can get lots of great merchandise to share the avocado love. The apron has great big pockets, and this one is the Red Hot design under the 2013 I Love Avocados tab. Nice sturdy fabric and the design prints very well.
You can share your love for avocados, give virtual avocado gifts and download screensavers, ringtones and blogger badges from Share the Avocado Love Facebook app. I just sent this note to my friend Susan (last name removed for privacy)
So what are we having with avocados tonight? A family favorite. Chicken sandwiches with what we call "Green mayonnaise" which is a mix of avocados, mayonnaise and garlic. The chicken is cooked with onions, cumin, salt and pepper, topped with cheddar or pepperjack cheese, served with sprouts on toasted whole wheat buns that are spread with the green mayonnaise. It used to be, I'd buy just one avocado and make enough just for dinner, but my family loves the spread so now I make extra for sandwiches the next day. It's easy, and so good!
They are also having a Twitter party on February 7th between 3:pm and 4:pm Eastern which is 12-1pm Pacific and here in Alaska 11 am to noon. I'll be there! Just follow @guacgrl or hashtag #iloveavocados to be part of the fun. There will be over 500 dollars in prizes including gift cards and CafePress gift cards. If you've never been to a Twitter party, here's your chance. I'll be there!
