I was a bit hungry today and since we will be bbq'n up a storm tonight I thought it would be nice to share a nice steak and steamy baked potatoe with you as my featured "Yummy Sketch of the Day"....
I have been taking it easy today...I call it a day to be grateful...I take a moment to enjoy all the wonderful things in my life ....and to refocus on whats important....
I also made some yummy guacamole ... it was so tasty with my lunch today.... I made up this recipe a while back and everyone loves it.... click on my photo to link to some fun facts on Avocados.....
I take a nice ripe avocado, one vine ripened tomatoe (remove the seeds) cut it into a nice dice...chop up 2 green scallions, use a rasp to shred up a small clove of garlic, add the juice of 1 lime, add 2 or so tablespoons of sour cream and salt and pepper to taste...
I use a fork to combine all the ingredients until its nice and creamy.... I enjoy this as lunch by adding it to the top of some kidney beans....I have even use this recipe as an appetizer with wedges of greek style flatbread baked with a little shredded cheese....yummmmmmmmm!
