Yesterday when I went grocery shopping I was in such hurry that I accidently picked a couple of avocados going on the over ripe side. My checkout girl brought this to my attention and told me I can pick out new avocados and as well as keep the over ripe ones. That’s what I love about Whole Foods in Hillcrest San Diego, always great service. Anyway so suddenly I ended up with a lot of avocados and some that needed to me used ASAP so I made veggie tacos with a bean and mango guacamole.
Bean and Mango Guacamole
The weekend so far all about healing my sick poor little family. Bella and James both have bronchitis and Noah a high fever and he’s teething at the same time. My poor little man is still a happy go little guy but sometimes he just gets frustrated because he’s not feeling good. I’m still healthy and feeling that I might have escaped this curse….knock-on-wood J
