Guacamole :)

I have always wanted to make homemade guacamole. :) My mother has always told me that avocados can be expensive, which is true. However, you just need to know where to buy them! I went to Aldi's several weeks ago and bought them for 33 cents each. Then, I went to Walmart and they were 1.25 each. :) I definitely made the better bargain, which is the first sign of becoming a domesticated woman! When picking out the right avocado, you must first decide your purpose. If you are making guacamole choose the softer ones because you are mushing them anyway. If you are putting them in a salad, you may want them a little bit firmer.

4 avocados peeled, pitted, and mashed
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced onion
3 Tablespoons cilantro
2 roma tomatoes diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic

First, you need to pit and peel the avocado. This is actually a very easy task to complete. :) Get a large knife and cut around the pit. Eventually you will have two halves of the avocado and one wil contain the pit. Then, use a spoon and remove the pit into the trash can. Then spoon the avocado out of the skin into a bowl. Then, mash all the avocados with a spoon or fork. Add the lime juice and salt. Mix in the onions, and tomatoes once you have chopped them. Then, add the cilantro and garlic. Refrigerate for one hour to get all the flavors interacting with one another to make GUACAMOLE. :)
