Some things never change. This weekend I met up with some of my best friends from college for our Alma Mater’s homecoming game. It’s officially been a decade since we graduated, which does not seem possible. I learned that although a lot of time has passed, some things just don’t change. Like Danielle’s hair.
Can you tell which one is Danielle? (I love you, Dani)
Although we have a few more crow’s feet and smile lines, some things don’t change. Like how no matter how long it’s been, there are some people you will always turn to.
Judging by the food I brought to our tailgate, some things do change. Like the way I eat. I would have stuffed my face with much greasier, much more artery-clogging grub when I was in college.
Instead I brought a batch of veggie burgers (which I did get teased for), some roasted red pepper hummus with homemade crackers, and football game guacamole.
Every last bit of the guacamole was eaten and my friends demanded I post the recipe, so even though there are a bazillion recipes for guacamole on the Internet, here’s one more. I promise this will be the last recipe you ever try. It’s that good!
I’ve made a lot of different guacamole recipes, and THIS is the PERFECT guacamole. You will love it!
