Guacamole

There are very few people in the world who don’t like avocado, and the only benefit of knowing people who don’t love this creamy, green delight of a fruit is that there is more for you!

Guacamole, is obviously a firm favourite for most avocado lovers. It is amazing on basically  everything ranging from Mexican tacos, toast, nachos to roast veg.

Popcorn Prawn Tacos

As I have mentioned previously, Doug and I went through a taco phase.  Out of all the tacos I made these Popcorn Prawn tacos were a favourite.  My brothers polished off what I made and begged me to make another batch.  I obliged and that batch was scoffed up just as quickly.  This is a real winner.

Avocado and Jalapeño Dressing

I am back from the most relaxing and chilled holiday in Mauritius.  I basically just read my book in the sun, swam in the crystal clear water and just did nothing stressful for 8 days.  I also got to swim in dolphins which was absolutely amazing! It’s one of those experiences that really lives up to expectations.  The bottle-nose dolphins were super friendly and the spinners kept us entertained by playing around and jumping out the water.
