Avocado love

Avocadoes from Malaga have hit the market. This is truly a moment to celebrate. Not that I´m strict at all when it comes to buying only local and seasonal stuff, mind you. Sure, I shun the Brazilian mango and the Peruvian asparagus and Chilean cherry, but I do buy the avocado from Ecuador if need be. The thing is, those are expensive, and it´s tricky to get them just how you want them, and there´s a lot of dissappointment with rock hard or far gone especimens.

But these Malagan babies are perfect. They are so cheap, you can buy a bushel and not mind having to chuck one. NOt that you have to, because they are really easy to pick out in their perfection. Also, they are small, a perfect single serving.
With such bounty, I use them everywhere. Salad or sandwich or breakfast toast or oriental wrap or quick dip, they are the fat of choice. Mayonaise, go away until further notice.

Mi nuevo cuaderno de mesa es un A4 de Windsor&Newton, bastante detestable; tiene las páginas perforadas y además el papel traspasa la tinta cuando uso plumilla. Después de un mes de odio total me estoy empezando a reconciliar. Lo uso con pilots y lápices y para collage y ya está.
