Winter Blues Guacamole

This is the time of year that everyone starts feeling those winter doldrums.  Even with the non-existent winter like the one we have had this year, I am itching to go somewhere warm.  And I am in luck. In a few days I leave for the sunny, beautiful beaches of Mexico.  That’s right, soon I will be lolling on a beach chair, pina colada in hand watching the gentle waves of the Atlantic roll over the white beaches of Playa del Carmen. Don’t worry though, I will be thinking of you as I drink my cerveza and munch on some guacamole. 

And for those of you that are not as lucky as I and stuck here in the city while I am suntanning at the beach, try this easy guacamole recipe and sip a corona while you do.
