As I said before, the ant was still alive… but it wasn't my chip anyway, wait staff took it back to the kitchen, we all wound up with small glasses of port for the trouble.

Trade ant for port? Sounds like a good deal!

… you just hope the restaurant owners don't up the ante on you trying to pull that vial stunt. ;-)

It's just the top layer of guacamole molecules (guacamolecules?), if you lay saran down on top of it it'll stay green.

Second this, and also suggest a light spritz of lime juice before the saran wrap.

But yes, the saran wrap thing works so well that I use it from time to time to "save" a half an avocado for the the next morning's cheap avocado toast. (and I still can't believe there is a "market" for something so damn cheap and easy to make... but then fools pay bucks for pre-made coffee drinks too...)

Just how many $9.00 avotoasts does it take to equal a decent toaster?

New York City: $10

It’s no surprise NYC has one of the most expensive toast prices on average. And you can spend way above the average price with gourmet choices such as the $18 pomegranate avocado toast at While We Were Young.

Dallas: $8

Avocado toast is literally the first thing on the menu at the Dallas coffee shop Toasted. The “AVO-CA-DAMN” for $6.25 features both red and green sriracha.

San Francisco: $9

The steep price seems fitting since the tech capital has one of the highest rent rates in the world. But, if you’re rent poor in San Francisco, you can find filling and cheap avocado toast at La Capra Coffee. The unique baguette bread version is only $5.50.

Miami: $10

We’re actually shocked that the average price isn’t higher because everything is expensive in Miami. For a total splurge, head to B Bistro and Bakery The $15 Mexican Avocado Toast is piled high with jalapeno crema, cotija, charred corn and pickled Fresnos.
https://www.travelchannel.com/intere...ss-the-country

Even during the winter, and the superbowl rush to coat things in green dip... Avocados only tend to run as high as 2.50 apiece... a loaf of bread might be as high as 6.00 if you get something really tasty... and the toaster uses what, 50 cents worth of electricity (and can still be used to warm up your waffles and poptarts).

So half an avo: ................1.25
One slice of bread: ...........0.50
electricity: .......................0.50
Amortized cost of toaster: ..0.50
.
Total:................................ 2.75
.
Eating warm avo toast while still in your jammies: Priceless!

I've heard of avocado toast as an epitome of hipsterness, never tried it myself, and not sure the appeal. Do you spread the avocado like butter?

I came to avocados late in life, always thought they were just slimy and disgusting. Then one day I had an epiphany with a mango-avocado salsa, and that opened up guac for me. But straight up avocado, naw. Seems like it needs to be an unctuous base layer for something more.

Heck, I eat the damn things with a spoon... right out of the skin... sort of like a mini cantaloupe. Just a touch of pepper or a dash of some hot sauce.

Yeah, the reaction to Avocados is all over the map... some folks just find them disgusting, I tend to eat a 1/2 one every day.

I went nuts in Hawaii a few years ago... we were on the Big Island, and the Tennis pro apparently had Avos and Papayas growing on his property and would bring several into the hotel where we were staying. Now I don't play Tennis, but we were parked out near the Tennis courts, and as we left each day to go out and explore the island we went right past the office of the pro... and saw these big baskets of fruit. He said, "take one, enjoy... I bring them in for all..."

These things were huge mind you. The wife and I would grab an Avo and Papaya as we headed out to the beach, and the fruit would become our lunch... just add spoon. The only thing is the giant Hawaii Avos (also available in Florida) were not nearly as tasty as the smaller Haas from Mexico. But hey... the price was right.

In San Diego, I often was able to get the Haas from one of two neighbors that had trees... so again... the price was right. My wife makes a great chunky guacamole... and no, there is no mayo or sour cream in it... (blasphemous) . Just Avocado, onion, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro and lime and a pinch of salt... but she leaves the avo a bit chunky, not smooth. (yeah, pico d' gallo and avo... pretty damn easy)

My issue with avocadoes is the ones we get up here are always picked early and chemically ripened, so they're either rock hard or overdone and taste soapy more often than not. If you get a good one though...

Totally with you, I have a recipe copied from a friend that also mentions something like 'no sour cream -- wrong!'. And what you list is basically the same recipe, except adding also a skosh of cumin

My wife adds that from time to time too...

Heck we use a lot of cumin... we both have recipes for beans that call for cumin... I do pintos in a slow cooker (or instapot), she does black beans out of a can. Both are quite tasty. All depends on what we are in the mood for.

I panicked the other day... we were down to several tablespoons of ground cumin... so on a store run I got some cumin out of the expensive "organic" bins. The spice area indicated a delay in shipping of regular spices. Two days later, back in the same store, and lo and behold... the giant bottles of cumin are back on the shelves. Whoo Hoo!

The other night, while out at this Chinese restaurant for a music gig... this plate of something very strong, spicy and obviously "blackened" went by... The band had to halt for a second to catch their breath. Turns out it was something called "Cumin Beef." Wow. Now that was Cumin!

My wife had the genius idea to add cumin to tuna salad (i.e. tuna+mayo for sandwiches) it's fantastic! (also a little crunch from diced celery is good)

My new favorite spice that I add to many things (probably too many) is smoked sweet Spanish paprika. Adds a smoky, earthy undertone to just about anything. So good. And yes, it goes into most avocado dishes I make.

Back around 5th grade or so, I did some sort of report on paprika... and became familiar with it.

My mom wasn't much of a cook, so it wasn't in abundance in our house. (She was from the era of '50s cooking that included such wonders as Mac and Cheese from a blue box, Shake and Bake, Jello molds, and Stuff cooked with Campbell cream of mushroom soup.)

We have both smoked and unsmoked paprika in my house. The smoked is especially nice... but I will admit that cumin is used far more often here.

I have to laugh as when we go camping, it is always a bit of a chore to pack the spices in a camping box so yes, even over an open fire, we have "the magic stuff."

I tried it once, since I like avocados. I was at work. A coworker walked up: "Um, I think your bread has gone moldy."

I like to eat my avocados mashed with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. In the Philippines they eat them for breakfast with sugar and milk on top. At a Vietnamese restaurant I once had an avocado shake with avocado, milk, and sugar; it grew on you and I went from being unsure at first to having the thing on my mind for days after. In Bangkok I had avocado with ice cream on top, which was pretty good (especially since the ice cream was excellent).
