Chunky Guac

I’ve been busy the last few weeks which has made me kind of a dead beat blogger. I have at least 4 recipes to post but I haven’t had the time to post them! So enough about that, let’s just get to the food!

This recipe was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. Pretty much every idea I have these days is inspired by Pinterest. If you aren’t on there, you need to be! Sorry this isn’t the best picture. I’m still awful at photographing food, mainly because I lack patience. Every time there’s a good picture on my blog it’s because my husband took it. I was unsupervised here…ugh. You’ll just have to take my word that it is extremely delicious (as is all guacamole, am I right?). I was quite honestly in too big of a hurry to start eating this. I always say, I’m an eater, not a photographer!

The chunks of avocado are pretty fun. I personally don’t care for tomatoes so I didn’t include them in my version of this recipe, but if you like them then by all means, add ’em in! I’ve decided you can really do no wrong with avocados, cilantro, red onion, garlic and lime juice. It’s good no matter what.
I have pretty big plans for this stuff. Mainly, stuffing it in my mouth faster than you can say, “hey, there’s a pug!”.

Ha! Oh that pug…

We got a fence a couple weeks ago! Even though we live in a townhouse, in our community you are allowed to fence in your yard which is rare and exciting. We debated if we should do it or not but in the end decided it will be nice in the winter because we won’t have to go outside with Lilly every time she needs to do her thing. Also, we can have a garden now!

Here’s what the space looks like.

It’s bigger than it looks but it was hard to photograph. That’s my kale plant in that pot. It has been producing more kale than I can eat all summer.

As soon as the fence was installed it took Lilly approximately 10 seconds to figure out she could just crawl under the fence and get to freedom. She doesn’t look like she would be very ambitious or fast with…anything, but she low crawled under that fence so fast I didn’t even see it happen! She’s smarter (and more agile) than she looks I guess 🙂 So we got some of those metal mini-fence things you get from Lowe’s to fill that gap under the fence. She still walks the perimeter every day looking for high spots. I got to witness her escaping once and it was the cutest thing. To be honest, I’m impressed. This is also what makes me terrible at dog discipline.

Chunky Guac
2 ripe avocados, chopped into small dice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
3-4 tablespoons diced red onions
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional but fun)

Combine all the ingredients except for the avocados and pepper in a medium mixing bow. Add the avocados and stir to incorporate everything. Garnish with cayenne pepper. Store in the fridge with plastic wrap smooshing everything down so it doesn’t turn brown.

Alrighty, have a good week and I will have another recipe to post soooooon!
