  1. Up until about 3 months ago, I disliked avocado. Now I can not seem to get enough. Shrimp on the other hand, yeah I have never disliked them.

  2. In the UK it can be hard to get avocados at the right stage of ripeness. They seem to be like cricket balls on Monday, just right Tuesday, and black mush on Wednesday. I’m recently back from Mexico and they eat loads of them, I did too. I also got very fond of pico de gallo.


  3. Haha you aren’t kidding! I find the knobbly skin type are usually a bit more forgiving than the smooth skinned ones.

    Damn and double damn! I just had a prawn curry and realised after I’d finished it that the avocado was still sat on my windowsill. Now I’ll have to have another one. This low carb life can be hard . . .
