Dear Avocado

    Dear Avocado,

    I hate you. You are a terrible fruit or vegetable or whatever the hell you are. You make perfectly good foods taste like air. Also, your children, guacamole, is another awful piece of food. I am requesting your species be eradicated from Earth at the earliest possible convenience. Nachos do not need you. I do not need you.

    I am officially starting the Physics Forum Avocado Eradication Group, or PFAEG. Who would like to be my second in command?

    To point out tht Pengwuinos don't have taste buds?

    I love avocado, but I can't justify the outrageous price except on special occasions. Grocers would rather let them rot than sell them for what they're worth. And that's another issue, most of them ARE rotting when you buy them, even if they don't seem soft, you get them home, cut them open and they're brown and stringy inside.

    As the supreme onion, I feel that I must eliminate all competitor fruits. Consider me part of of the PFAEG.

    I propose that we also eliminate beans, brussels sprouts, grapefruit and lemons.

    Lemons are ok. The lemon flower is very pretty and the fruit is sweet, but the tree of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

    Mix into a bowl:
    avocado
    LOTS of lime juice
    LOTS of cracked black pepper
    soya sauce
    toasted sesame seeds
    salt

    Stuff portions into a snack-sized baggie, seal.
    Ram a plastic knife through the baggie lengthwise.
    Freeze.

    Avocadosicles!

    ee-YUM!

    Took one to work every day for a month. Stopped when I'd gained five pounds.

    What about all the applied mathematicians who became bean counters?

    I love avocado and guacamole, especially when the latter is freshly made, and complemented with a spicy salsa. :tongue2: :biggrin:

    Pengwuinos have taste buds. Like me, Penguinos don't have to pretend that we are thrilled by some avocado or zucchini concoction to try to make ordinary people pretend that cardboard covered with sauce and spices are wonderful dishes that taste great.

    Give me green beans, tomato, garlic and spices of your choice and I will build a meal around it. Throw in tasteless crap like avocado and zucchini (or eggplant), and my meal will collapse. Fresh-picked avocado might be wonderful, but by the time it gets to NE, it is worthless.

    Re: Dear Avacado...

    I thought that was just a local problem. I LOVE avocado, but it's so hard to find a ripe one and not a green or rotting one. There's about one week a year that I can find good, ripe ones in the grocery stores here. Maybe Pengwuino just didn't get a good one. If they're ripe, they taste buttery and nutty...very very very yummy!
