Yesterday's Harvest



Hey, two are missing...

It was a windy day yesterday. But even with the strong wind going in every direction, the unwavering avocado tree is resilient from the winds' pressure. It would also rain or shine a few times during the day but we were able to gather eight avocados. We have now a total of forty-three and we're still counting.

We're all crazy about avocados. I don't know anyone who does not like them. I'm not surprised why David Wolfe inserted "Avocado" as his middle name. I hope there's enough avocados to make a pasta dish, a few sandwiches, a smoothie, a fruit salad with nut milk, more salads, maybe some dressings and salsas and of course ice cream.

  1. I am intrigued by avocado and ice-cream. As a fruit, I shouldn't be surprised of its use in a 'sweet'. I always have an avocado on hand. They are just delicious!

  2. You are so lucky. I cannot imagine having an avocado tree! And I can't wait to read about your dishes. I love avocado soup and of course, guacamole, but ice cream??! I'm game.

  3. Oh, those look lovely. I have a wonderful recipe for Chocolado Pudding made with avocado and dates and a whole assortment of other healthy, delicous things. No one who eats it has a clue it's made with avocado, at all. Seeing your beautiful harvest makes me want to whip up a batch!!

  5. I hope you'll be posting your pasta dish with avocado. That sounds delicious and I don't think I've seen a pasta recipe with avocado. The fruit salad with nut milk sounds really interesting, too:)

  9. Hi Divina Pe!
    I really love the photo of the avocados lined up on what looks to be a stone street. May I use this photo for my blog? I would credit you and your blog, of course.
