Happy Cinco de Mayo!

So what are you going to do to celebrate this holiday which has little or no national significance in Mexico? Good thing we can't contract swine flu from cerveza!

And speaking of Mexican food - only on Facebook can one have a conversation with Olivia Newton-John about the price of avocados in Florida vs. Baltimore and New York and favorite ways to eat them...one of hers being guacamole.

I'm going to make some guac, since avocados were a buck apiece. And I have Rick Bayless' Topolo Margarita recipe, which I just had at Frontera Grill in Chicago a few weeks ago. Yum!

Mmmm, guacamole! BTW, the one in your picture looks, well, just wrong (I hope it's stock photo from somewhere). It should be chunkier!

Also, have I ever told you about the Guacamole Nazi who taught me how to make it? Four ingredients only. Or else. (I'm not sure "or else what", I was scared to even ask.)

Yup, stock photo. And no, you never told me about the GuacNazi recipe. I use avocado, lime juice, and salt in my recipe. Sometimes a bit of chopped onion.
