Death by giant avocado sounds somewhat tasty.

How about a guac recipe thread?

Mine:

haas avocados
red onion, diced
cilantro, minced
salt, pepper, little garlic sometimes
splash OJ, splash lime juice
diced tomatoes

Mash everything up except the tomatoes. Once done, fold in the tomatoes to keep them from getting mushy.

You can thank me later.

I've been to all of them.
There's some really beautiful places and people in all of them.
But you be you, assmunch.

It's time for everyone's favorite show! It's....Names of Business that Scotch will NEVER open! The concept is either a Latin American or a hipster restaurant. The name? Avocado's Number...

In all seriousness, be weather aware if you're in those areas. The storm prediction center rarely dishes out chances like that over five days out. The Mayfield, KY tornado happened around the same time last year.

Winter tornadoes are a thing down there now. Alabama had a bad one a few years back.
Found it.

Skip the cilantro - tastes like Palmolive
Use White Onion
Skip tomatoes
Skip OJ but definitely use lime juice
Add:
Splash of Worcestershire
Splash of Soy Souce

;-)

All in areas that constantly complained about people eating avocado toast. Well... now the avocado has no natural predators down there, and it's run amok!
 
2022-11-27 9:22:08 PM  
You can't fool me.  The Rockies will stop anything over on the west coast.  We only ever have weather from the Gulf.  It's just too far.  Besides, weather people are always saying we're going to have something.  It's how they keep their jobs.  Study it out people.

I of course read that as "tomato", which also made sense in the context of this thread.

Here's mine: take an avocado. Halve it. Remove big hard thing from the middle. Sprinkle pepper and/or seasoning. Spoon out and eat.

Younger daughter Pow is flying to the Dallas area on Wednesday from Salt Lake. Gonna have to keep an eye on this one.

Is this the 3rd or 5th 100 year storm this year. I've lost count.

No we're just tired of listening to people firm those states whine and biatch after those storms, when you all do jack to prepare for them. Especially Texas!

Considering that an avacado is also called an alligator pear, you weren't too far off.

/ the alligator part makes even more sense in the Deep South

From your link :  The avocado is native to the tropics and subtropics and its name "abuacatl," is the Nuahtl (Aztec) word for "testicle," which is assumed to be a reference to its shape and to its aphrodisiac properties.

and I restate my case :

tembaarmswide: Balls!
