It’s lunchtime, and I just sat down to enjoy a tuna sandwich topped off with Anita’s Guacamole. It’s my first time trying the stuff, and man, is it good! I admit it, I’m a bit of a guacaholic. I think any food tastes better with guacamole on it?(I’ve even been know to dip dark chocolate into fresh guacamole). Yum!
But hey, guacamole is good for you! Research published in the?Journal of the American Heart Association shows that eating avocados can actually reduce cholesterol. So for me, it’s a win-win (well, maybe I should skip the chocolate).
If you are anything like me and love (or even like) guacamole, you owe it to yourself to get down to the Wildwood Farmer’s Market this Saturday and buy a pint of the stuff. It’s good! But don’t take my word for it, try a free sample and see for yourself. if you get there early enough, you can watch Robert & Mel create the guacamole from scratch, using only fresh ingredients. A word of warning: grocery store guacamole just won’t taste the same afterwards. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of places to find Anita’s Guacamole in the area.
