When my heart is heavy, I do things that make me feel good. With my mom in town for a short time, we met a friend at the city market.
I love it that I have now been to the market twice in one month. We tried sheep's milk cheese. We sampled fresh peaches. I bought fresh herbs. The Short Chic wanted blueberries. The Boy got a turkey leg. Oh yeah! The Boy was also interviewed for a documentary on Being an American these days.
After we got home, I do what I do the most when my heart hurts. I cook/bake. Today I made homemade guacamole. My family tells me I have them spoiled when it comes to guacamole. So, today I taught The Boy how to make my version of guacamole.
The Boy helped me peel the avocados and then enjoyed using a potato masher to mash them up. After that, I added chopped tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, jalapeno, and finished it up with some Kosher Salt. I prefer Kosher Salt to table salt and recommend investing in some if you would like to make some of your own guacamole.
