We’re half way through the week. Thank-goodness! I’ve got a lovely little recipe to share with you all today. It’s easy-peasy, and I hate that I don’t make it more often because we demolish it every. single. time!
But first, let’s get caught up on our workouts this week thus far!
Sunday: 4 HIIT miles on the treadmill at the gym, followed by a 1 mile walk with Miss Truckee
Monday: Nada. Unless you count another quick walk with Miss Truckee.
Tuesday: Not a dang thing! Girl’s night! Hey, sometimes girl time is more important.
Tonight: Weights! I’m planning on sticking with my “weights on Wednesday” plan! And maybe a quick run at the gym, especially after pigging out last night.
Tomorrow I’ll hit the treadmill again for another ~5 maybe 6, then hopefully I’ll have time again this weekend to get in a good long run and really kick off my training.
How are your workouts going? I’m playing my next half marathon training plan by ear, and running what feels right. It’s my 6th one, and I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. And what doesn’t? Having a strict-written-in-blood plan! Although, I did I make out my long run “schedule” for weekend planning purposes.
And now, let’s get down to important matters!
Easy Homemade Guacamole Recipe
and holy guacamole, it is tast-yyy!
I started with 4 fresh avocados, and scooped everything out into a bowl. If you want to keep one of the seeds in the bowl while you prepare everything, it will help keep it from browning. Or you can dowse it with a lemon, which I do a bit later 🙂
Add 1 decent sized tomato, diced
1 diced onion, everyone is a little different on their onion preferences, but we both love it so I used about 3/4 of a small/med red onion
1 finely chopped jalapeno
a clove of fresh garlic OR a spoonful of minced garlic OR a sprinkle of garlic powder
don’t forget to spritz everything with lemon or lime to keep your avocados from browning!
add salt to taste, and optional- cilantro
I forgot to add my cilantro this time, even though it’s one of my favorite ingredients! Still good either way!
Mash everything together with a potato masher or a fork
Voila! Homemade guacamole ready to eat!
Guacamole is one of my absolute favorite year-round treats. I could eat spoonfuls and spoonfuls, and not even think twice.
It stored well overnight, covered tightly with aluminum foil and spritzed with some extra lemon.
