holy guacamole

I have been craving guacamole lately. If you know me at all, you know that I usually do not like that nasty looking green stuff and will happily scoot it right off of my plate to yours. Not anymore. I don't know what triggered this sudden and ginormous love for the guacamole and chips. But I am diving in head first and making up for some lost years.

Saturday before I started feeling REALLY bad, Shawn took me to Branson. Woot woot! We shopped and then went to eat at Cantino Laredo because my man and I love us some Mexican food. Suddenly as we were sitting there, I realized I wanted guacamole. I wanted it bad. I wanted it enough to forget about the hefty $10 price tag and go for it.

The guy, also known as our waiter, brought all the fixins and made the guacamole right there at our table. Oh my goodness, I was salivating as I waited patiently for that first bite. I would have taken a picture of the process, but I had a feeling that might creep him out a bit. Especially when I explained that I was just going to put it on the world wide web and all.

No worries, though - I got an action shot of the first dip

Sure, it is a little dark, but we were going for the action shot. Those aren't always perfect anyway.

My two loves together, Shawn and guacamole:


  1. I know exactly how you feel! I've hated guacamole since I was a kid, but lately I've loved it. Just thought I'd let you know I related to your story.

  2. You are so much fun! Miss you...

  3. You're making me think of trying it... :)

  4. Jen, I can so relate to this. I have never like quacamole but realized I have never tried it :) When I went to Houston, that's all I heard about. When I got home, Eric made me some and I wasn't pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it.
