I always think of that when I use my olive-CBD oil for aches and pains.

We are both major avocado fans in our house, we have them often just as a side to meals with lemon, salt, and pepper. I do love them sliced into sandwiches of any sort. Another favorite is with salmon tacos...we do a tangy slaw, salmon, avocado and tomatoes...yum. I'm ready to try that pasta for sure!

I find that winter time is not the best time to buy avos in the store. Many times, the fruit that I purchase looks great on the outside, but has suffered cold damage on the inside. What a waste of money.

There was a restaurant near me in an old apartment where a burger was prepared and instead of buns there were 2 halves of an avocado. I wanted to say anyhow that this is cool, but it seems to me somehow too satisfying, I usually eat half an avocado

I made this for a friend many years ago and she still talks about how good it was. I cant take the credit. It's not me...just mother nature.

Slice a perfect avocado in half, carefully remove the pit.
Pour a tablespoon of really good olive oil in the pit cavity.
Squeeze a bit of lemon, or lime on the oil.
Sprinkle a dash of salt over it all and serve.

When I make guacamole, I add Picante hot sauce because the preservative it is prepared with help the avocado to stay green! In the event that you have leftovers: If you cover it with plastic (Saran wrap) so that it touches the guacamole and keeps air out, the guac won't turn brown.

What a great duo. I am from Chicago and saw Small Potatoes many times. It has been many years though!
