Recently a lovely friend of my son's dropped off a load of avocados from his parent's orchard. After spreading them around the neighbourhood, there were still plenty to indulge. I cut one in half, scooped the stone out, filled the stone-hole with mayonnaise, and ate, straight from the shell. Yum. Decadence!


  1. I'd fill with cottage cheese rather than mayo but you've just made my mouth water. Time for some blue cheese!

  2. Well Geeb, actually, the mayo was a bit fat-overload, not you mention it. Cottage cheese a very good substitute.
