.Table Side Guacamole.

ah! Here it is…my first food post. After careful examination on what i make in the kitchen, everyone’s hands down favorite is my guacamole. I don’t know about you but I love me some guac. It goes good with chips. It tastes delicious on my burgers. Its better than hot sauce on my tacos. Guacamole is a versatile condiment that should smother all foods! I tend to fall in love with restaurants that make a table side version. I love watching it all come together and love to eat it even more! So one day while watching Carrie Bradshaw’s short move to Paris I thought, im gonna make my own! And ever since then it has been a staple in our fridge. I hope that you love it as much as we do!

     .Table Side Guacamole.

  • 3-4 very ripe avocados
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 1 medium tomato diced
  • 1 jalapeno diced (membranes diced if you’re feeling spicy!)
  • 1 bunch of cilantro roughly chopped
  • juice of one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash of cumin

Prepare your avocados. Peel and cut them into medium pieces and place them in a bowl that is big enough to fit all of your ingredients. Add your onion, garlic, tomato and jalapeno. Stir together with a spatula until the avocado pieces start to break down. If you have avocados that are a little unripe, a potato masher may help you to get the consistency you like. After you reach your desired consistency throw in the cilantro and lime juice. Stir until combined and add your seasonings. And then breathe it in. It smells so good!!

Serve with pretty much anything! But tortilla chips seem to be the pairing choice for most, including my fiance!

If you are feeling in a South Western mood I love to add roasted corn and black beans. To die for!!

And there you have it! Thank you for supporting my first blog o food! It was a simple one, I know, but hopefully I can only go up from here!


.happy birthday freddie.

How fitting that the first post is about Freddie! Oh how I love him so…

Freddie’s birthday was this past weekend and with ALL of the wedding things happening and everyone we know being here and there and so busy, I knew that something had to happen to celebrate him and how special he is. So I pitched him a few ideas and he went with the small shindig at home option. I personally was hoping for a night out on the town but that is partially because I didn’t want to clean my house. I’m lazy sometimes. More than sometimes.

But I did clean up our humble abode and I ordered a 5 foot burrito. Yes the five footer from Acapulco Cafe! If you live in Torrance or the surrounding areas you know exactly which one! We kept it as a family affair and just hung out, ate great food and wished my main squeeze many many wishes of happiness for many birthdays to come.

I know this year has been hectic for us and that many days have been a little overlooked in lieu of the Big Day in August, but I hope that he felt amazing at his little home birthday party. There are not enough words to tell him how much he means to me and our family and our extended family. We are lucky to know you Freddie. Hooray! You were born!!
