    I really wanted some guac today. Avocados are loaded with carbs. I ended up cooking some ground beef with a bunch of seasoning and having romaine lettuce taco wraps.

    I love it now. Always have a bunch on hand. Take a few out (or ten) chop it up and put it on or in everything.

    So since I made this thread about guac here are some artsy photos of my guac that i made tonight.

    guac is my go to late night snack. Even if I'm too lazy to make quac, I always have an avocado on hand to mash up and eat plain.

    This is a pic of minced garlic, diced tomato, diced tomatillo , diced onion, diced jalepeno

    BTW, it's good to had a sharp knife to dice and mice those vegetables.

    Here is a pic of a scooped out avocado with squeezed lime juice, salt cumin, and cayenne pepper.

    I'm just trying to make him feel good. I don't see the harm in that.
