Avacados mucho!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Yesterday DH and I harvested some avacados from our tree. This is a photo of only one bag full....there were four! We will give them to our help and friends and still have plenty left over. This time of year I eat about one of these per day. They are really good Haas avacado. Yum!
What is your favorite way to eat avacados?
I hope all my sparks buddies have a terrific Oscar Sunday!

    I'm obsessed with avocado. I would eat them with every meal if I could. I especially like them on my sandwiches or in my salad. I'm sooo jealous of your avocado tree. I wish I had one but I live in Illinois :(

    Lucky you! That is a lot of avocados. I know some people like to add them to their smoothies. That is a good way to use them up. Hm my favorite? Hard to pick! But I do love them diced up on top of a good quinoa chicken tortilla soup!

    I love avocados just plain. We are paying $2 each
for just one. My friend gave me 3 from her tree.
I love them and you are so lucky. emoticon

    There's been good prices on avocados from Mexico (for Portland anyway) lately so I've been eating a lot. Would love to have them fresh picked like yours. One of my fast favs is a chopped avocado and tomato with a little mayo and some tiny cooked shrimp.

  I love avocados. I usually eat them with a tortilla, deli meat and shredded cheese.

    Oh, they are GORGEOUS, Sallie! The best avocado I ever ate was in Mexico City eons ago, at La Merced market. I just peeled it and ate it, and the freshness and "avocado-ness" of it - and my resultant bliss! - are still fresh in my mind. That was "only" 44 years ago, LOL!!

To have an avocado tree of your very own and yield a bumper crop like the one reflected in your fabulous pictures...ahhh...a girl can dream! emoticon

    How great that you can just walk out the door and pick away! Four bags full is a lot of avocados!! It's nice that you share with others! Otherwise, you'd be up to your eyes in guacamole. emoticon Enjoy!

    Yummy! My favourite way to eat avocados is to sprinkle them with lime juice and a little salt.

I also like them Italian style with sliced tomatoes, sliced mozzarella cheese, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and basil leaves.

    My daughter introduce me to eating them peeled and sliced with most any meal. Always before it was just in guacamole and I avoided that because of all the calories. Enjoy!

    Oh you are so lucky to have homegrown avocados!
Mind you for 11 pesos/kilo I can't complain :) We love avocados and always have some on our salad, lunch and dinner. They are great stuffed with chevice or cooked shrimp, pureed in soups and then there is of course guacamole :) Enjoy!!

    I love to eat them straight out of their skin with a little chili pepper sprinkled on top.

    Dear lord- can you freeze them?
I could eat one a day, easy, but probably eat 1/4 of one a few times a week.
