Grapefruit Guacamole

Grapefruit Guacamole_1

That blinking cursor is causing analysis paralysis again, so I’m forcing this one, my apologies.

House projects are driving me batty. I have to paint, pull weeds, prune back our landscaping, have our fence replaced, and so on and so on. Somedays, I question why on earth I ever left my condo… the upkeep on those suckers is just perfect. They are, however, less than ideal for dogs and my husband who just loves his hammock. I don’t mind getting these things done, the problem I’m having is the limited number of summer days left. Le Sigh.

What I do just love is summer produce – Peaches, Zucchini, Squash, Watermelon, and Nectarines to be specific. So, the other night, Mike had plans with the guys and I decided to have guacamole for dinner. No seriously. I was staring at this grapefruit and I just decided I had to add it into my guacamole. Before I knew it, the whole bowl was gone. I’ve probably lost some of you with this combination, but just trust me.

I kicked it up a notch by roasting the garlic before mashing it into the avocado goodness. On top of that, I made another batch of plantain chips and used them as dippers. Good grief it was delicious. I was oh so satisfied.
