Gracamole

The kids aren't fans of "gracamole". I'll spare you their descriptions of what they think it actually is (or looks like).

I, on the other hand, really love the stuff. Love it on my sandwiches, quesadillas, chips... you get the idea. However, I find it annoying that I end up throwing most of it away before I can use it.

One day, it occurred to me that if I could freeze my chopped up celery and peppers, I could freeze my guacamole too. I'm sure someone else has thought of this, but just in case YOU (my 5 loyal readers and guac eaters) haven't thought of it... I decided to pass my genius along...


After the guacamole is made (or bought) I separate it into portion sized baggies and then freeze it.

When I want a fancy sandwich, I just pull out a baggie and stick it in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes and voila... guacamole that isn't nasty brown. Not only do I have guacamole whenever I want it, I don't end up wasting a whole batch.

Now I just need to get Heidi to give me her recipe and I'll be good to go...

Let's hope that since guacamole comes from an "apple-codo" as bens would say, that it is healthy. Cause I've had it everyday this week.

Em,
Your kiddos are soooo cute and Zach looks like Danny I think. He is stinkin cute! I sure miss seeing you and the family. Hopefully all is well with you. Mom has told me how crazy your life has been lately moving and all. I just hope you know I am thinking of you and love checking the blog.

I'd say someone should put a call into Oprah -- this is an idea worth sharing, on grand proportions! for reals!
