For breakfast try some toast with some mashed avocado, bacon and a fried egg(top with a bit of cheese if you like)

I can second the breakfast sandwich! A little tomato too.

Avacados have terrible and expensive the last few months. 2 bucks each and they are hard. I am headed to the Latin side of town this week. Our open air market has some competition so I bet I can do better.

2.00 that is a lot. I get the small one for.79 and the large are 1.49. I refuse to pay more than 99 cents each. So I get some great buy's this way. Yes to the tomato idea. I adore tomatoes.

James and I will definitely be trying this soon! Avocados are pretty expensive here too, but I can often find them on sale for 99 cents. One store was charging $2.00 each, and as much as I love avocados I couldn't bring myself to pay that much. I have to really check the avocados out too. Sometimes they get one kind that gets big black spots and sometimes get stringy inside. Lately though, I have been finding some beautiful avocados!
