Veggie Wednesday

Way back in 2000 a bunch of us from AOL Food Chat got together at the home of my friends Nancy and Len (aka mom and dad) on Long Island to meet and EAT. We had a blast meeting each other, most of us for the first time. I'm not on AOL any longer and I miss my friends dearly!

Katie's hubby, Ivan, brought this dip~it was awesome.

Ivan's Guacamole

2 ripe avocado's scooped out and mashed
1/2 red pepper chopped fine
1/2 green pepper chopped fine
1 medium onion chopped fine
5 stalk of scallion w/green part chopped fine
2 cloves of garlic chopped fine
1 jalapeno pepper chopped extra fine-seeded
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime or three tablespoons
salt and pepper to taste
a pinch of sugar

Add all veggies together including garlic, jalapeno and
cilantro. Add avocado LAST to prevent browning.
Add the lime juice and season with salt, pepper & sugar.
Decorate with sliced lime rounds and cilantro.

*NOTE: How could I forget?? Today is the first day of spring! This isn't a "veggie recipe", but I posted a really FAB recipe for Spring Chicken over at it out!

Did you know that AOL is free now? Don't have to pay for it if you have another Internet provider. Hope your kids are feeling better!
