Guacamole

Holy Guacamole !  Food Network’s Alton Brown of Good Eat’s fame has a really good recipe for Game Day !  Great with The Better Chip Beets and Sea Salt tortilla chips.  Spinach & Kale and Jalapeno are good choices too.

I didn’t change the recipe one iota.  But if you want to double or triple the recipe, just click on this guacamole link to download a PDF.

To prevent browning, use barely ripe Avocados and press saran wrap on the surface of the dip and seal around the edges.  The Good Eat’s Guy says to let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature before serving.  Good Luck with that, I’m diggin’ in.

Zucchini Latkes

When zucchini’s are plentiful,  it’s time to make Zucchini Latkes as a side dish or Chocolate Zucchini Muffins for a snack.  The original Latke recipe has two parts zucchini to one part potato.  Tasty Yukon Gold potatoes with a 1:1 ratio works too.  For extra OOMPH, I add cayenne and chopped  jalapeno.  It’s nice to have roast garlic in olive oil on hand.  I  put extra garlic in the veggie mixture.  Then I brush the frying pan with the infused oil.   Fried food is a real treat once in a while.  See Comment below for a healthy shortcut.

If you have any leftovers, they go great with eggs the next morning.
