Aldi had a sale for 19 cent avocados last week. I've been waiting for them to thouroughly ripen before trying all the awesome avocado recipes I found on Pinterest. This was supposed to count as Recipe 3 for number 11 on my 25 before 25 project.
I had a great idea to plan a meal entirely around one ingredient: avocado.
Unfortunately, right as I was about to embark on this intense cornucopia of avocado deliciousness, I discovered that all of my avocados were squishy and moldy. My thorough ripening had turned into thorough rottening. Major sad face. Next time there is an avocado sale, I will make sure I watch those puppies closely before I ruin my chances of having a full meal of avocado delight. Have you ever had a major ingredient fall through at the last minute? Did you end up eating cereal like I did? Can anything substitute for the perfection of a fresh ripe avocado?
