I remember growing up in such a loud house with lots of loud people, I mean this in a good way! Salsa music is huge in my Puerto Rican heritage. Did I mentioned loud? dancing, laughing and eating lots of pork, cow tongue Yuk! and so much more. Now, to our huge table centerpiece, the Avocados! No Pun Intended! Avocados was always an everyday eat. I cant remember a day where an avocado was out of sight in our home or any other hispanic family that we knew. No joke! Its like gold. 😀
“Tata”,(moms nickname for me)”Isn’t she a beauty?” Funny, but shes not talking about me ;’) but that beauty of our huge avocado. So many different varieties, small, large, smooth, sweet and so many that I actually have eaten with pride. The Avacado is my green gem and my weakness and I still love’em!
Oh heck yes!!! In so many ways. I am defin putting this on the menu tonight!:-) If the Queen city had an “avocado queen” I would win…
