guacamole -5628


Guacamole made from Closet Cooking’s recipe. I’ve loved looking at Kevin’s dripping melty good grilled cheese sandwich photos over the last couple of years. I’m still going to make that grilled cheese with maple syrup sandwich one of these days.

But today I was making guacamole.

I chopped up a tomato and removed the seeds.

Mashed one avocado at a time because I chose a plate that was almost too small.


guacamole -5616


I was careful and managed to get both avocados mashed on one plate.




I chopped up some red onion as fast as I could before I cried.




I didn’t cry. This onion had been in the refrigerator and I think that helped. When it comes to onions I need all the help I can get.




I minced up a very small jalapeño. I was scared to put too much in as these peppers had been very hot. 




Then I tossed everything into a bowl that was almost too small.




I only had half a lemon but it was lemony enough

Added some cumin that wasn’t very fresh and I think I could’ve added more.

A little salt and pepper.

Remembered the tomatoes at the last minute. The cilantro was a scratch since there was none in the garden.

Even though it was missing the cilantro I thought it tasted just as good as I imagined it would when I first looked at the recipe.
