The Sky is Falling

Most days when I am working at my computer in the studio with the door and windows open, I am serenaded by the birdies singing. Today, though, I am startled from time to time with a thud, crash or splat. It seems the sky is falling outside my door.

You see, it is avocado season and the tree is loaded. There must be thousands of avocados hanging on the boughs and, as a squirrel goes by or the wind blows, these green grenades fall to the ground. It is probably advisable to wear a hard hat as I walk to and from the studio but I haven’t resorted to that as of yet. Rather, I scavenge underneath the tree to find the fruits that will become guacamole versus those destined to become compost.

Here is the quick guacamole recipe we whip up this time of year:

Mix fresh avocado with fresh lemon juice.
Season with garlic powder, ground cumin and sea salt to taste.
