Family cookery

September is birthday month in my family – Mom’s is the 8th, Mark’s is the 9th, and Jen’s is the 12th – and in lieu of an early celebration for Mom, we had dinner with the whole family last night. I made a salad with herbs and veggies from my garden, and Mark made stuffed burgers and an amazing guacamole. For dessert, we went to Dairy Depot.

That is not the important thing.

The important thing is Mark’s guacamole, which just might be better than mine. I’m exceptionally proud of my guacamole, so this is really saying something.

Mark and Jen did all of the prep work, but from what I observed, the guacamole contained:
– ripe avocados, coarsely chopped
– fresh tomatoes, chopped
– red onion, finely chopped
– ripe mangoes, coarsely chopped
– fresh cilantro, chopped
– maybe some salt and pepper?

We ate the guacamole with Scoops chips, though I definitely ate some of it with a spoon straight out of the bowl.

  1. I’ve been hunting for the perfect guacamole recipe for years! Were there no peppers? What about lemon?


    Do mangos magically take the place of the lemon juice? It’s brilliant.


  2. This is what I sent to Soy:

    I usually make mine with the following:

    – ripe avocados
    – red onion
    – lots of fresh cilantro
    – fresh tomatoes
    – lots of salt & pepper
    – juice of at least 1 lemon & 1 lime
    – other stuff if I feel inspired

    I don’t know how well Mark’s stuff would keep since there are no acids to keep the avocado from turning brown, but that didn’t really matter, since we ate almost all of it immediately. 🙂
