Russian-Style Guacamole

Filed under: blogging, parenting — edge of the sandbox @ 7:51 am

I hate to be the blogger who announces that I’m not going to blog much in the nearest future only to, you know, keep blogging as usual.  I’ve been relatively busy since Ivan the Terrible Threes dropped his nap, but, I guess, not too busy.  We are however, leaving for SoCal this Friday, so I doubt I’ll be online much — unless something highly bloggable happens.

Our trip has nothing to do with Russian style guacamole, but I noticed that kids who don’t like the avocado texture gobble up this one.  I learned it from my grandmother who found it in a health food section of a Russian American paper.  Not to complicate things for the seniors trying to master English, it was called “avocado salad”.  You will need:

One large avocado;

One hard-boiled egg;

One small ripe tomato, cut in small pieces;

Salt, mayo and sour cream to taste.

Mush up your egg.  Add avocado, mush it up together with slat, mayo and sour cream.  Add tomato, and you are done.

I highly recommend adding hard-boiled egg to your tuna sandwich as well.  My proportions are one egg for two cans of Trader Joe’s tuna.  Finely chopped white onion is another nice touch.



  1. Have a great trip my friend.
