Roundup and Link Love – Guacamole Edition

After a long week out of town and over 1,200 miles driven between 5 stores in 3 states, I’m home. But it’s a bittersweet return because my wife and children are back home visiting our families and watching my two nephews graduate high school. Congratulations to David and Andrew! I’m proud of you both!

At least I’m able to eat my homemade guacamole with lots of garlic.

Here’s the recipe:
3 ripe avocados, roughly mashed (peel these last to avoid oxidation)
1 roma tomato, coarsely chopped
2 coves of garlic, finely chopped
2 jalapeños, finely chopped
1 Serrano chile, finely chopped
Optional: one finely chopped chipotle pepper
Juice of half of one lime
1-1/2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Kosher salt (more if it needs it)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Mix it all together and enjoy in any Tex-Mex dish, on tortilla chips, or by the spoonful, like me. :D

On to the Roundup!

If the guacamole doesn’t make me famous, maybe I can use one of Steve’s methods for getting famous.

I really enjoy making (and eating) this homemade guacamole. (yeah, it doesn’t take much) Could it be good enough to help me formulate my own plan for a business? I might get become so famous that I CAN turn it into a successful business and have to go through an exit interview like Patrick!

If you decide to make the recipe, you might want to tone down the garlic. At least that’s what my wife says. You might be able to tune out the news, but not the fabulous taste of homemade guacamole! Let the Joneses find out how good it is and THEY will be trying to keep up with YOU.

JLP asks, “Would YOU wait in line 12 hours for $40 in gas?” Maybe not, but if you wait that long for all the flavors in the guacamole to meld, you’ll think it was worth the wait.

SVB has a list of 8 ways to save $1,000. How’ bout adding “make your own guacamole?” Have you seen how much it costs in the grocery store?

Mrs. Micah addresses a common problem: How do you handle lending money to a relative? Lend them guacamole instead! I wouldn’t expect it back though…

Nickel takes a reflective look back at his life from 10 years ago. Let’s not talk about 10 year old guacamole.

Mike at Quest for Four Pillars is considering no more Saturday posts. That means he will have plenty of time to make and eat some homemade guacamole.

Finally, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to SingleGuyMoney who also paid off a financial mistake. Maybe someone can make you some “birthday guacamole!”

I cannot believe I was able to tie guacamole to everything in this post….
