Sunday Food Thread 6/3

Well I was kind of low on ideas this week and then saw that avocado in a pride scarf image. One of my earliest threads was about avocados but it was long ago enough that I’m ready to bring them up again.

First off do you like avocados or are you some kind of unfortunate soul who doesn’t like them? Tell us your favorite way to eat an avocado, maybe your first encounter with the alligator pear. I have to confess that the first time I tried an avocado  I didn’t know what to make of it and walked away more confused than anything. I was about 12 years old and just remember some mushy blandness. As I got older and came back to the fruit I discovered more nuance to the flavor (likely enhanced by a dose of salt). These days I mostly eat them in salads or just plain with the aforementioned salt. Slice one onto a grilled cheese sandwich and I’m a very happy eater, or on top of a bagel under a slice of melted cheese.
