Blogging from A to Z Challenge: A is for… (#AtoZChallenge)
Welcome to my April 2023 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
I’ve revealed my theme (My life in first drafts), but this year, instead of pretending there were ever plans, I am unashamedly blogging my theme letters on the fly. So, here goes nothing!
So, without further ado, A is for the deceptive but always delicious Avocado.
Why begin with avocado, you may ask. My life in first drafts. Well, I had to choose something and this was the first thing that popped into my mind. So there.
We love avocados. We eat them all the time, and I love them plain (with a hint of salt and pepper), as garnish on salads, and of course in guac. But they are deceptive. They are green which makes you think, hey, green…must be like good for you. But they are huge on the caloric front which you can forget really easily because they are a “good” fat, so we are told.
I don’t know when we started eating avocados all the time, but if we don’t have an avocado to add to our dinner plates, disappointment is in the air. Doesn’t matter what else we have on the plate, it just doesn’t quite taste as good.
Avocados are like the one food habit I have, not we cause Kevin has a lot of food habits (same things for breakfast and lunch on workdays for 20 years, whereas I like to mix it up, man). And I never really thought about it that way until writing this post. I guess there are worse things to have as a food habit. But I tell you, if I start carving them, please call someone….

Guess I’m kind of a rebel too…although I do like using the “official” letters…

I like avocados too. I put some Catalina dressing in the center after I take the pit out.
Just had one tonight on a sammie: grilled cheese, tomato, lettuce, avocado. Looking forward to B…
I’m hungry again…
I’m not a fan of avocados, but Mary is. Still, great start to the challenge!
Tell Mary, she is welcome any time!
I love avocado’s too although it is always a gamble as to whether they will be just right or gone over… The only fruit that get less sugar content as they ripen and although they have to reach a certain stage on the tree else they won’t ripen, once they have reached that stage, you can leave them on the tree for months gso no gluts in the market.
You’re right – another avocado deception!
I’ve never seen an avocado in such a close close-up – wow! Wish that avocados were easier to get – in best condition – year-round here. (and I agree that this year’s official A2Z badge is… yeah)
I love the macro setting on the iPhone.
Fun way to start the challenge! Avocados are so good! But, I never remember to buy any, so whenever I do remember, it sure is a treat. 🙂
The days when we can’t find a ripe one in the bin for our dinner are very sad days…
