The Avocado should have some give under your thumb. But, not mushy.

No sense starting a separate thread, so can I ask here how to buy a ripe avacado? Should it be soft? Should it smell a certain way? First time avacado buyer, too. Just like cantaloupe.
Yes to bacon grease, and yes, avocado should be soft to gentle pressure. No smell test that I know of.

I'm thinking a warm quinoa salad with an oil-vinegar dressing, okra and whatever else I find in the veggie bin. I have honeydew and strawberries for dessert.

It's been a rain filled week for us and today is no different. I can't predict whether it's going to rain so it's indoor cooking for me.

I will be roasting a pork tenderloin and serving it with rice and steamed broccoli.

we'll be doing a version of the show pac mentioned, but ours will be "fish, kill, and cook".

i'm taking the family down the shore today for their first time salt water fishing. so, hopefully dinner wlll be fluke or striped bass.

we'll just be fishing from a pier since the weather is so bad, but i hope something's biting.

Good luck Bucky! I wonder if what happened on my first fishing trip with my Dad and Grandpa when I was about your son's age. I caught three beauties and they didn't catch a thing!

The skeeters will be biting for sure!! LOL Have fun Bucky. We will be going down the shore in about a week or so. We go to Seaside Hghts to the Carousel Arcade on the boardwalk to play then hit the sausage and pepper, clam on 1/2 shell, corn and lemonade venders!! lol We don't swim or fish.

Have a GREAT time Bucky!!

thanks lp, pac, and mofet.

to set the mood, i watched the original "jaws" movie yesterday afternoon with the little guy. i love that movie. it came out during tge summer when i was 10 or so and we were vacationing on long beach island. boy, did i have a hard time swimming in the ocean that year.

dw freaked out a bit about the movie but i made sure to ff past the really gruesome scenes, like when ben gardner's head appears in the hole in the bottom of his boat.

lol, i did happen to forget about the bloody leg that sinks to the bottom in the bay. lol oops.

thanks again. if we catch anything, i'll post pics.
