Whack A Mole

Too cute, right??
Ha! That caught your eye didn't it! What I'm actually talking about is guacamole. But the first time Alex ever heard that word, he was probably about 3, he thought I said "whack a mole" and was very confused as to why Mommy was eating his game. LOL Avocados are one of my favorite vegetables. I can eat them sliced, w/ a little salt, I always have them in my sushi, or on Mexican food, I add them to salads when I can (Adam and Alex aren't fans, so I eat theirs too!), and in of course I love guacamole. I can make a whole meal out of a bowl of "guac" and some chips. I love having it for lunch w/ some crackers or chips.  I have come up w/ my "perfect" recipe including all the flavors I love w/ things I usually have on hand. Not to mention now, thanks to my lovely friends, Coupon Loving Chicks, I have an adorable serving bowl for it! Plus it can be mixed up in no time at all, so it's great when I get that late night craving, or for that last minute party or backyard barbecue invitation.  So if you like "whack a mole" as much as I do, this is a great one to try!

Easy Guacamole
2 avocados, chopped (I like to smash mine w/ a potato masher)
1/2 lemon juiced
2 TBS chopped onion
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 TBS olive oil
Pepper to taste
1/4 tomato chopped

Mix all together and chill for 1 hour for best taste.
