A client keeps on bringing these in to the office. I like avocados and I make damn good guacamole. But how many of these things can we eat? An office of twenty people can't keep up with the constant flow of alligator pears that keep on finding their way into our break area. I don't want to sound like an ingrate, because it's a nice thing to have, and not everyone has access to fresh, good avocados all the time. At the same time, avocados are made of, like, pure fat. Yummy, but you can't make a steady diet of these things. So what do you do with this sort of thing?

Pure fat, but it's the "good" fat. At least that's what I tell myself.

Seriously, I remember when my parents had an avocado tree, we had to give them to everyone we came in contact with. But now, nearly 20 years removed from said tree, I miss it dearly. I miss free avocados. Avocados here on the east coast are rare and expensive, and that makes me sad.

At the risk of sounding like Bubba Gump, there's guacamole, avocado and black bean salsa, shrimp salad in avocados, avocado slices on turkey sandwiches, avocado slices on salad...oh, heck, just look online.

If you go to this website, you can read about the amazing health benefits from avocados. They definitely get a bad rap as far as the fat is concerned, and are very good for you.

Chocolate-coat them, then deep-fry them on a stick.
