~~Once upon a time, I didn’t like avocados. Now, as it happens, I do. ~~

The End.


That gripping narrative tells it all, really, but it is a puzzling thing. What strange chemical changes are brewing in my body? What brain-switch has been flipped? I’ve been making fish tacos about once a month. Last time, in a fit of madness, I popped a few slices of avocado (which are always on the side since Don likes them, even if I do not. or rather, did not). I was not repulsed, but neither did I go into raptures.

This Saturday past we had rehearsal at our place. Since I am incapable of placing food in front of expected guests, I made a few appetizers. For some odd reason, I was compelled to make guacamole. Let me tell you, my friends, it was delicious. Now I can’t stop thinking about avocados. I had fresh guacamole for lunch. I’m thinking of fish tacos or a salad with avocado ranch dressing for dinner. It’s madness, I tell you! I can’t stop!

Mmm, avocado. It's always fun when your tastes change like that, I think.

Now, me, I never know whether I will like shrimp or find it repulsive. I've spent my whole life waffling on that issue.

Fresh made makes all the difference. Now try putting it a taco salad!

Probably you got a really good avocado...it can make all the difference.

I could slice and avocado and eat on crackers with a bit of salt. All of the other ideas sound yummy as well.

But I can't think of a time when my tastes changed that completely and quickly!

I love an omelet with avocado, bacon, & cheese, topped with sour cream and sometimes salsa.... MMMMMMMMM.
