I've Won the Lottery...in Avocados

October 31, 2012

I currently have in my possession a grand total of 29 freshly picked avocados. 
You may be saying to yourself, well Jessica, what could you possibly do with 29 freshly picked avocados? 
And true, it does seem a bit...excessive. 
But what would you do if you were invited to a local avocado ranch and a lovely little lady named Carol kept stuffing avocados into your bag like the world depended on it?!
You would gladly take them. :)

Carol is the mother of one of Amanda's classmates up in Seattle, and she is the sweetest. On the last morning of Amanda's visit, Carol and Tenni, her yellow lab, gave us a tour through their 5 acres of avocado trees in the Goleta foothills and it was amazing!

Now begins the great Avocado experiment. 

Any recipe suggestions? 


  1. I am SO jealous of all your avocados! That is my favorite food! I smash it up with salt and pepper and spread it on toast for my morning snack! :)

    1. I love avocado toast - so good! Matthew eats it with honey...something I scoffed at, until I tried it. It's surprisingly good!
