Guacamole is simple and fresh to make, and this is my go-to recipe. I can never get enough of it! 


A random Spring-like day – whee!


The high is only supposed to be 30 degrees tomorrow, but for now, we’re rocking nearly 50 degree temps. I celebrated by calling my Mom.


My Mom and I walk nearly every morning that it’s above 30 degrees and not raining during the Spring, Summer and Fall. We’ve been on hiatus since late November, so I called to see if she’d like to make our morning walk an afternoon one and join me on a stroll through my neighborhood after work!


We’re hoping to pick our morning walks back up sometime soon, but for now a chance to catch up and stretch our legs in the sunshine was perfection. We got back to the house where I said goodbye to my Mom, and hello to my husband!


And back out we went. To the neighborhood basketball court to shoot some hoops.


It’s a fact that I semi-loathe basketball…mostly because I suck at it. Hard.


My husband, on the other hand, lives and breathes basketball.


He’d watch it, play it and/or talk about it 24/7 if he could. Plus he’s pretty good!

So I play along. COW, as a matter of fact. Yeah – we play cow instead of horse since it goes faster. 3 letters vs 5. You understand.

As the sun began to set, we wandered home to make a refueling, (hey, chasing after missed baskets is hard work!) protein-packed dinner of Eggs & Avocados.


Have you ever had eggs & avocados? The combo is to die for.

I started by making the guacamole. If you have 5 minutes – make my super simple guacamole. If you have ohhhh 6 minutes – make the version below. It’s got a few more ingredients to kick things up a notch, but is still easy-peasy!


I start with three, ripe avocados. Scooped out and mashed with a potato masher in a big bowl.


In goes a seeded and chopped vine-ripened tomato,


minced, fresh garlic,


chopped, fresh cilantro,


the juice of 1 lime and salt & pepper.


Then – here comes the really tough part – mix! Right?! Super easy!

Best guacamole ever! So fresh, buttery and full of flavor. Fluffy eggs and creamy guac just works.


On the side, I toasted up some…toast!


I popped by Great Harvest this afternoon to pick up some fresh bread in anticipation of tonight’s meal. A loaf of Grandma’s White Bread for Ben, and half a loaf of Honey Wheat for me.


(so add $6 to my grocery total this week. Trust me, this bread is worth the $!)


One slice smeared with butter, the other slice slathered with Polaner All Fruit Apricot Spread…and some butter too. You can’t have jelly without butter.


The saltiness totally brings out the sweet flavor of this spread – which tastes like a fruit roll up. YES!


Mmmm. Quick, easy and delish. My kind of weeknight meal!

Well I’m off to wind down for the evening. I’m going to try this hard to get up for a morning workout tomorrow and need my rest in order to get up by 5am!

See you!


What’s your favorite sport? Least favorite sport?

My favorite sport to watch is college football. It’s just exciting, I think. :) My least favorite is basketball. It’s just so monotonous – back and forth and back and forth and back and forth! AH!!
