the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Avocado season!

The avocado is a widely used ingredient in Paleo recipes, and suddenly they dropped in price to $.88. Naturally there are a hundred sitting on the countertop in my kitchen. Subtlety is my strong point.

I put them in salads, on top of grilled chicken, in omelets and wraps, and make huge bowls of guacamole, something both kids will eat. Tonight after homework I’m going to break out the chips and salsa (tortilla chips are my weakness and what prevent me from going full bore Paleo) and whip up some fresh guacamole while the kids talk to me about their days. I just needed some help figuring out which ones are ripe enough. Today Chuck had a very specific job.
