Guacamole is pretty awesome as long as it doesn't have chopped onion in it. Mole is better though.

She's not trolling. She just started a thread about food.

Give her a break. She's new here and she doesn't necessarily know that we all have a massive (if occasionally justifiable) stick up our asses regarding threads. I'm on three other forums where this thread wouldn't register a single complaint. Ignore it if it offends you that much.

you are clearly a tiny bear and not a troll.
This forum's really not that strict though. My other forum bans people who use chatspeak, commit necromancy, do not use the search engine, or do pretty much do anything even slightly obnoxious. Minor offenses are granted a single warning and all offenses after that are banned.

I am always up for tea parties.

But you can have the guacamole okay, I don't like it.

Cucumber sandwich, anyone?

Lunchy proffers a plate
Title: Re: Avocado
Post by: RobbieOC on 25 Jul 2008, 15:18
Avacadoes are pretty great. They work well in salads, sandwiches, burgers, lots of things! Aside from guacamole. I would also be interested in seeing some folks recipes which feature avacado. Unfortunately, I don't have any as I'm pretty lousy at preparing food...

And if this thread is trolling, it's pretty well disguised as not trolling.

And yes please to the cucumber sandwiches!

Anyone ever have an avocado bubble tea? those things are outrageously delicious

After posting it, I took a quick look at your post history... Sorry.

Back on to the unnecessary topic, avocado is nature's butter and avocado oil is almost as awesome as rice bran oil when it comes to cooking.

*May I join you?*

Yeah, I've had that. It's pretty popular here, actually. Because my small suburban town likes to think that it's L.A. or something.

But, it is delicious. I can get behind any trend that supports something worth being supported. Yep. Tea party it is!

Avocados are pretty great. Guacamole is delicious. Bubble tea is pretty cool, if you don't eat the bubbles.

I don't know why, but I am not a fan of guacamole.  Maybe looking at it for the past year while making sandwiches has turned me off.
Title: Re: Avocado
Post by: usmcnavgeek on 25 Jul 2008, 19:17
I am a recent convert to guacamole and avocados in general.  I'm not sure what triggered it, but all of a sudden I was like 'Hey, this green stuff is good on mexican food!  And this fruit-vegetable thing, it is good on sandwiches!'.   

It was a watershed moment, I tell you.

Anyone remember that drink Orbits? I still kind of miss it. It was like carbonated bubble tea, sort of.

I once had a Chipotle burrito with guacamole. It felt like I was eating mush. To say the least, I did not enjoy it.
Title: Re: Avocado

That actually sounds pretty delicious. Guacamole is also pretty durn good on burgers
Title: Re: Avocado
Post by: Darkbluerabbit on 25 Jul 2008, 21:06
Scrambled tofu with avocado is my favorite thing to cook when hungover, because it is ridiculously easy and nutritious.  Served with dry toast and big glass of cold water, it's like a goddamn miracle cure. 

I always assumed bubble tea was carbonated tea.  The bubbles are solid?  Now I am very intrigued. 

Added: I love avocado in burritos and on burgers (Boca, in my case.)  Chipotle burritos can be good or bad depending on how stoned the employees are.

Post by: ViolentDove on 25 Jul 2008, 23:03
Yeah, the bubbles are made out of tapioca or something? Ever since I decided they looked like massive fish eggs, I kinda got put off them.

I used to eat avocado with balsamic vinegar and tomatao on toast as a ritzy breakfast (Avo's are pretty pricey here, most of the time). It's pretty goddamn tasty.

it's not slimey and the fat is all unsaturated and omega, making it far more healthy than most things you probably have in your diet.

Man you know what's good
the AVOCADO BATIDO

1 ripe Haas avocado
1 cup of milk or soy milk or so iunno I always sort of eyeball it
1/2 cup of crushed ice
2 tablespoons of sugar

Blend all ingredients until smooth.  Awesome.

Hop on over to Chinatown. That is actually where I experienced bubble tea for the first time. That is, where I first learned of my deep-seated disgust for it. All experiences since have done nothing but confirm that first impression. The texture makes me nauseous.

As for avocados, cut in half, eaten with a spoon, a little seasoning or just salt. Perfect for lunches.

Coconut Milk Tea with coconut lychee jelly is what I was introduced to bubble tea with, and it's all I drink; I get some as much as possible in summer, nom nom nom!


Avocado is good a number of ways:

1. Chicken schnitzel with avocado, semi-dried tomato and melted cheese on top,
2. Three layer dip - mashed avocado, salsa (normally mild, but that's because I am a wuss) and sour cream layered on top of each other. Favourites at parties! Looks pretty gross after a few people have had some, though.
3. uh, I'm sure I'll think of more later

I've always liked avocado, but a few months ago I became almost obsessed with it. It's now my favourite edible green thing.

Guacamole's nice, but my preferred method is to just cut the avocado in half, fill it with something a bit salty and/or sour (like salted/smoked roe) and munch it up with a spoon. Yummy yummy texture <3 best appetizer, snack, and meal.

I never really got the thing about bubble tea... those tapioca balls kept distracting me from enjoying the experience.

I was once served rice pilaf in half an avocado.  It was excellent.

I am going to agree with everyone who has praised guacamole, and especially the people who recognize how incredible it is on (in my case veggie) burgers.
