If you're having a martini, it's fun to use an avocado ball, instead of the traditional olive. You just use a melon baller.

Okay, it's after 12 - I'm up for one :D
Actually, avoballs are really good in gin drinks too, especially citrusy ones.
Very good in grapefruit vodka as well.
I'm lookin like a lush - oh dear! Back to my coffee!

I love avocados any way, shape, or form! To eat them plain, I like to either cut them in half, remove the seed, and sprinkle just a bit of salt on it, or better yet put a couple teaspoons lemon or lime juice on it and then add a little salt. Avocados are wonderful on a green salad, along with tomatoes. Any dressing is good with it, but Thousand Island seems to be made to go with it (I also love Bleu Cheese with it).

Now I am going to give you a recipe for something so wonderful that you will wonder how you lived this long without it! lol

These are served cold and go great with steak.

Stuffed Green Chiles

1 can (4 oz.) whole green chiles
1/4 pound shredded jack cheese
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1 red onion (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste

Mash avocado with salt and pepper. Slit open chiles, remove seeds. Stuff each chile with avocado and cheese. Place stuffed chiles in deep (at least 3") dish. Mix oil and vinegar and pour over chiles. Top with onion slices, if desired.

Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.

Enjoy!

:) Barbara

All I do is split the avocado in two, remove the pit, then pour some canola oil and red wine vinegar into the avocado (leave in the shell), and eat it up!

Avacados

I am happy all of you feel the same way I do about avacados. Amber, you don't mash it before you eat it? Not on crackers or anything? I truly have gotten hungry for them just reading all the comments. I do like grapefruit and vodka too. I don't think vodka is bad for you either. Doesn't seem to affect me but I was told not to drive if I drink. Have you tried raspberry vodka? They say that is good. Any other vodka drinkers here?

avacados

Guess I am thinking of vodka when I have to clean this freezer. Anything to help me with this job. Just as long as I don't fall in and the lid closes.
