Fair enough! When it comes to a ripe avocado - it's everyone for themselves I say!

Very retro I know, but why change something that works so well?

Nothing remotely like that, but by gum that looks good! (And I would scoff it in a heartbeat).

I recall a tomato mayo based dressing on them too.

Well, I may just have to go back to London sometime to find the exact recipe.

Would this be a bad time to admit that I have (in desperation), nuked a rock hard Avocado?

Well, if you mix mayo, tomato puree, lemon juice, a tiny bit of Paprika (or if you like some heat - some Cayenne), S&P, with a small amount of cream.... you should have the perfect sauce to coat your lovely prawns and pay due attention to your creamy avocado....

Hmm. Katy, that may be it! Thanks!

Still won't keep me from visiting London again. How's the snorkeling there? Oh, that's right, never mind. The Thames isn't known for that.

No.

It softened. But it did nothing to improve the flavour.

Avocadoes are very delicate.

Bummer. OK, apparently we can freeze prepared guacamole. Costco does it all the time. I did not know this until I saw it here. And apparently it keeps well. I did not know that.
