Yes, there truly is a day for each and every thing!
Today (Sunday) is "National Guacamole Day".
If you have never made guacamole - it's really pretty easy and very tasty and also quite good for you! It's a lower calorie dip than your average onion or ranch dip because avocados have way less fat than mayonaise or sour cream. (Plus - it's the "good" kind of fat.)
That said - here is the simpliest recipe:
2 ripe avocados - smash them (with the skin off, and no pits)
sprinkle of lime or lemon juice
sprinkle of salt
Eat with tortilla chips
You can elaborate from there! Most people have their "secret" recipe - and will add tomatoes, cilantro, onions, garlic, etc.
