- 5 avocados
- 10 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
- 3-4 scallions, finely sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
- hot sauce to taste
- salt, to taste
Cut avocados in half and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh into a gallon-size zip-top bag and remove most of the air. Squish the avocado until it is mostly smooth—chunks are good!
In a bowl, combine the avocado, bacon, scallions, lime juice, hot sauce, and salt. Gently fold in the blue cheese. Put plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and chill for 2 hours. Serve with tortilla chips and/or carrot sticks.
If you enjoy cake but don't want to make a whole one, make individual servings of cake with the following recipe.
3 2 1 Cake Mix
- 1 box angel food cake mix
- 1 box cake mix (any flavor)
Combine ingredients thoroughly. Store in an airtight container.
3 2 1 Cake
- 3 tablespoons 3 2 1 Cake Mix (see above)
- 2 tablespoons water
Put ingredients in a microwave-safe container such as a coffee cup. Mix to combine. Microwave mixture for one minute. Top with frosting, fruit, whipped cream, jam, or whatever you like.
It's called "3 2 1 cake" because it's 3 tablespoons of mix, 2 tablespoons of water, 1 minute in the microwave. Thanks to my Grandma for sharing this with me!
I made these delicious beauties tonight for dinner:
Roll out your crust. Top it with a couple of tablespoons of Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbecue Sauce. Cover it generously with mozzarella cheese (2 cups per pizza) then lay down a nice layer of thinly sliced red onion. Arrange slices of chicken breast that have been poached in chicken broth and then shake on some McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning. Bake in a 500º oven for 13-14 minutes. When it comes out, sprinkle it with chopped cilantro.
I was at a place called Coffee Talk in Clare, Michigan today and decided to have a salad for lunch. Let me tell you, the Caribbean Salad was delicious, if misnamed. It was romaine lettuce topped with grilled chicken, red onion, pecans, canned peaches, and chevre (goat cheese) with a citrus onion dressing. Fresh peaches would have been better but the salad was still delicious! I want to go back and try all the other stuff on their menu, now!
Polonia Restaurant in Hamtramck, Michigan charges a service fee if you pay your bill with a credit card, in direct violation of Visa's merchant agreement (see page 10, "No Surcharging"). Each check is stamped at the bottom with a message that they'll charge you an extra 3.72% if you pay with a credit card. This is dirty.
