I almost didn't ;)

The avocado's are ripe on the outside and hard on the inside.  I didn't make much.


Do you have any cornmeal?



Why?  To make tortillas?


No, to ripen the avocados

The best ways to ripen an avocado are to put them in a paper bag, cover them with cornmeal, and then close up the bag.  They will usually ripen overnight.

OR

Put the avocados in a paper bag with half an apple.  Close up the bag and put it in a dry dark place - Do not put in the frig!


I have never heard of this!  Clever, that's you!!

The Gin Game






I only saw THE GIN GAME once, about a hundred years ago.  So, when I was asked to play the part, I said Yes.  But when I went back and read the play I found myself offended by the last few pages of the show.  So, I  called them up and turned them down.  They thought I was being an ass.

I guess I just don't like the use of the F word.  I don't find it funny.

I don't remember how it ended now --- I saw it many many years ago(when I was in College)  when it played on  Broadway and  starred  Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn

Ahh...then you must've hated "Four Weddings and a Funeral"...if you've seen it.

Deep-fried avocado wedges? a.k.a. "avocado fries"?

Hmmm.  Have you ever had this?

I'm familiar with the paper bag method of ripening avocado's, not to use cornmeal or apples.  None of these will work anyway.  The outer section of the avocado's are very ripe.  The inside shouldn't be so hard.  I doubt they were good to begin with.

Top two small cast plays - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Long Day's Journey Into Night.

Also like Two for the Seesaw, Rattle of a Simple Man (both two person plays), The Only Game in Town and Luv.

There's also the musical version of Luv, called What About Luv?  Judy Kaye (and her husband) are in this. :)
I have that CD. I don't find all that much to call me back for repeated listenings, though.

Yum. But  then again, we had better-than-average Tex-Mex tonight with many slabs of avocado and guacamole. So I was quite happy and enjoy all things avocado.

There's a dish popular here where they take a half of an avocado, stuff it with shrimp or crab or cheese, then bread it and deep-fry it. Also quite good.
