Re: If You Like Guacamole...

My mother made mashed avocado sandwiches for me ever since I was a little kid and now my daughter makes them AND guacamole at least a couple of times a week.

 

My mom also made onion sandwiches, mild, when I had a child.  They are pretty high in vitamin C.

Re: If You Like Guacamole...

@Moonchilde, I had an aunt from California that had avocado trees and lemon trees in her backyard.   I would be in heaven!

I love guacamole.   I like it chunky with tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro, salt, and fresh lime juice.  

 

We eat avocados probably every day with something.  

 

When my kids were babies, I would mush up avocado and feed it to them.   

 

 


@Bri36, get outta my head.

 

Only fresh, simple guac. Your list is our recipe.

Bob's Big Boy is sure a blast from the past for me.  My Dad loved that place and we ate there often.  Even his grandchildren used to complain they knew the menu by heart.  They had a chef's salad on the menu that was my favorite.  I did not know they were still open.

 

Back to the guacamole.  I make it with garlic, a little tomato, a little jalapeno, and a squeeze of lime.  I like it chunky.  

 

There is a Mexican restaurant near where I go to the movies that makes it table side.  Sometimes we will go get an order of guacamole and tortilla chips for lunch!

There's a local grocery store called Tony's that makes fresh guacamole & pico de gallo in various heats daily. Whenever I'm near there, I stop & pick up 3 containers of mild pico de gallo (love that stuff) & one of their big containers of freshly made guacamole. I use the guac as a dip for carrots, celery sticks, & I put it on sandwiches instead of mayo or mustard.

Re: If You Like Guacamole...

I visited Hawaii three years ago. We were on the Big Island driving through a residential neighborhood filled with huge trees. 

 

We suddenly heard a huge bang and felt something hit the roof of the car. We stopped and found it was a gigantic avocado. About the size of a grapefruit.

 

We took it back, to the resort with us and sliced it up for breakfast the next day. It was delicious!

@Noel7, my grandmother used to make both avocado sandwiches and onion sandwiches for herself. At that age when she was doing it, I wasn't interested. She also used to make, and my mother said she took to school often during the Depression, mashed baked bean sandwiches. Yum!

@DiAnne, Bob's was our HS drive-in and I went there from junior high well into my 20s.

 

As far as I know, the last Bob's is the oldest, in Burbank.

My mother made leftover baked bean sandwiches, too.  In fact... I still make them with picnic leftovers, delicious.

@sgraham30,  I too love mild pico de gallo, and have been known to put some in my guac to save time.
