I read A LOT of blogs. I read them for enjoyment, I read them for inspiration and some I hate-read to remind myself of everything I don’t want to be as a blogger (truth!). There are trends and cliques and a bajillion surveys. Sometimes I feel like I’m in high school again. Good thing I loved high school….
A common trend amongst bloggers is talking about how a recipe they’ve posted is actually something they eat very frequently, and they don’t know why it’s taken them so long to post it. This is precisely what I am doing today. This avocado tuna salad recipe is made at least once a week in my home. I love it, C loves it, it’s delicious and easy and CHEAP.
Well, minus the avocados which for some reason tend to be pricey around here (#CanadaProblems). And here’s the thing, if I’m gonna be spending a whole $3.00 on an avo it better be perfect. This means it is necessary that I touch every single avocado until I’ve found one which I am prepared to buy. Apparently this is a no-no with my homeboys at the grocery store. Not once, but twice I have been told to “stop feeling up all the avocados.” I’m pretty sure the second time he was joking (same guy) but I was not laughing. If I wanna molest all the damn avocados then let me!
When Lee is busy, I find myself co-workerless so sometimes I pretend my “friends” at the grocery store are actually my co-workers. I probably chat them up a little too much and definitely come across to the cashier as being slightly over-enthusiastic about my produce. It’s not my fault I live on the internet and have no human interaction!!!! <–jeeeeze I’m dramatic.
So in order to make this avocado tuna salad recipe in my household, I am forced to hide from the avocado police and check their ripeness in secret. It’s a stressful experience but worth it for this absolutely scrumptious avocado tuna salad.
