Some say they taste like soap. I consider them to be the best fruit God ever created.

Oh MS, how could you do that to me! I like vinegar or BBQ potato chips! Speaking of potato chips, have you seen the ads for those other flavours? I can't remember them, but I think that there was one for cinaminon. That is the most riduclous thing I have ever heard of (please excuse the spelling). I am having a little problem with the English today, brain is not functioning the way it should. :D

AND, I still do KNOT like those avocadoes either! *Hugs" to you and wildcat who is probably looking for his avocadoes. :D

~~ML, maybe avocados don't make it that far north. ~~

If you find ONE avocado tree in ALL of Quebec, it will be in a temperature-humidity controlled enclosed structure inside a Botanical Garden.

That's about it !!!

One thing to remember is that the Avocado is a fruit not ever a veggie.

And it WILL NOT rippen while in the tree at all, it can stay there for months and it will start the rippening process once removed from the tree.

The ONLY problem is that birds and squirrells love them as much as we do !!! and while in the tree hanging beautifully the critters cannot avoid the temptation,.

I've been going out and having Caldo de Res (Mexican beef vegetable soup) before I try to donate platelets. The restaurant I go to has half of an avocado sitting out on a plate with the bowl of soup. I devour the avocado with gusto!

Making a great salad with avocadoes included, of course for lunch to accompany a seafood pasta I will prepare in an hour.

Shells used to be a fantastic Sea Food Chain Restaurant in Florida, it was a great place, unfortunately it went under 2-3 yrs ago. I got the original recipe for their seafood pasta and it comes out awesome !!!

That and a nice green salad with some chilled chardonnay, who needs more ???
