Avocado Failures + Not Skyrim
November 15, 2011 Leave a comment
This week’s been pretty uninspired, and I’m going to blame it on the fact that everyone but me is playing Skyrim and I’m stuck playing Sims 3. Jerks.
It didn’t start off that way– earlier in the week, motivated by the strange abundance of recipes involving avocados floating around the internet, I picked up a few of them and decided that my weekly post would definitely involve avocados. First, though, it seemed imperative that I actually try avocado myself. My only prior experience with the fruit was in guacamole, which I have only ever eaten once.
So I made a smoothie. A banana and avocado smoothie. It was the most disgusting smoothie I’d ever had, though when my parents questioned what the fuck I’d just concocted I insisted that it wasn’t as bad as it looked. It was. I’m stubborn like that. Remember when I posted about Green Monsters? Smoothies seemed so incorruptible then. Those were the good old days.
I stayed away from the avocados for a few days, but today was blogging day and I’d yet to make anything special. The avocados were threatening to go bad if I didn’t use them soon, as was the enormous amount of potatoes we’ve got lying around for some reason. I found something that called for both– baked potato chips and avocado dip. Chips and dip! Homemade! Surely I couldn’t go wrong with that.
Except it went terribly, horrifically wrong. Avocado dip is an awful thing sent by Dagoth Ur, like the blight, to turn everyone into Ash Vampires and drive the Imperials out of Morrowind. Oh, and I made a silly rookie error and ruined my potato chips by forgetting to grease my baking sheet.
So this week hasn’t been a good week for my kitchen. Unfortunately, this time I did not rise valiantly from my cooking failures and successfully make something delicious. I just had oatmeal instead. I promise to prepare a recipe worth posting about later in the week, and I’ll have more to talk about games-wise then too.
Update: I ended up unexpectedly working all week, so I didn’t get much of a chance to post! As of now, 11/22, I’m feeling like rather than forcing myself to post a recipe every week, I should probably just post ‘em when I have ‘em. And right now, I don’t have ‘em. I’m at a little bit of a loss as far as what to cook or bake that’s worthy of being posted on the internet. Suggest things?
