Since I’m not a huge drinker, I prefer to celebrate Guactober Fest, or any excuse to eat an avocado!
This is the guac recipe that my Grandpa Bert made probably weekly and it is so good! The flavors take me back to the afternoons growing up, where I would sit in his kitchen and help him cook.Jump to Recipe
God I miss him, But I am so grateful to have had him for 37 years filled with so many wonderful memories.
My grandfather was the true definition of a foodie. He always kept a cooler in his trunk and would drive to sometimes 3 different restaurants to get exactly what he was craving on his way home from work.
He was such a fantastic human, and I could spend all day sharing about him, but I have seen the memes about shutting up and sharing the recipes. So here it is:
- Large mixing bowl
- Chef's knife
- 4 Avocados
- 1/4 Chopped onion
- 1 Small lemon
- 1 Small Roma tomato chopped
- 1/3 Cup Sour Cream
- Dash Hot Sauce
- Dash Lawry's Season Salt
- In a large bowl, mash together the avocados, lemon juice, chopped onion, and sour cream.
- Mix in sour cream, hot sauce, and season salt.
- Lastly, mix in chopped tomato. Let sit in fridge for an hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
P.S. to get the full experience he always paired his guacamole with ruffles potato chips!
Here is an awesome Taco round up you can serve up with the guac!
But if you are still here and wanna know about the man who raised me; here it is…
My birth father took off when my mom was pregnant with me and my grandfather Bert stepped in to fill that role.
He was the kindest, smartest, most gentle man. When you were having a conversation with him he could make you feel like you were the only person in the world.
He worked night and day to provide a comfortable life for his family and instilled the same values of hard work and discipline into all 5 of his grand kids.
And we my boys were so blessed to get to know their great grandfather.
The man loved food, which is probably where I got it from!
He had the most eclectic taste. I remember he would get a craving for popcorn. He would drive to our neighborhood theater (where everyone knew him), same as at the grocery store. He would walk right in, buy a huge tub of popcorn and head home and eat it in front of the tv while watching a western.
He was the kind of person who treated everyone equally from the stock boy at the grocery to a ceo. And they all loved him.
He was also the OG when it came to avo toast. We have been eating avo on rye since the 1980’s!?
Do you have any family recipes that can transport you back in time?
and always, be bold friend!
