Will you guacamole me?

August 17, 2010

Whenever I eat an avocado at home, I wish I was married.  It’s been pounded into my head that while the delicious fruit is good for you, chock full of “healthy fat,” it’s also has a high-caloric number.  So what’s a frugal single girl to do when she wants avocado on her salad?  She’s certainly not going to only use part of the food and throw the rest away.  And she’s found no acceptable way to save half for later, as God cruelly dictated that this creation go brown within seconds of touching oxygen.  Of course, I could get a roommate.  But I swore those days were over years ago, after broken, un-replaced wine-glasses, floor-peeing cats, and jerky boyfriends who made your skin crawl and were always splayed on your couch.  And it seems extreme to get a roommate just so I can enjoy avocados.  But marrying for the fruit?  That seems just about right.

Dawns on me that my two reasons for wanting to be married are both produce-based.  Which makes me think I should diversify my matrimonial-desires.  There has to be more to marriage than fruit and veggies.

    Or… leave the pit in the remaining half of the avocado. There is something about the pit that slows the browning effects.

    oh saya – i appreciate your love of the avocado. of course, i hail from the land of the avocado and if i could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be guacamole! my best friend covered some guac with sour cream to store and it was in perfect shape (this may be weird if you were just eating avocado plain). do you ever get wholly guacamole – delish. i even found it once in singe serving packets (genius!). and i feel like trader joe’s sells frozen avocado halves (or did i make that up? it’s possible). these are some of the ways i get around the disaster of the browning avocado 🙂

    As a single girl myself I find that saran wrapping the leftover avocado and then putting it in a baggie keeps it fresh and keeps it from turning brown!
