It's avacado season here, so I decided today was the day I would make guacamole. I'll be the first to admit, I have no culinary skills whatsoever, and I'm a much better eater than cook. But I mean it's guacamole... how hard can it be to whip that up?

So, I got on the bus, and bought all the avacados, tomatos, onions, and whatever else google told me I'd need to make it, and then I got to thinking... what do you eat guacamole with when you don't have Tostitos? This is when my amazingness kicks in. I decide to buy the the spring roll wrappers in the market, which are basically really thin tortillas. They will be perfect once I toast them in the toaster oven...score for creative thinking.

So I get back to the house, and find out the avacados are practically rotten, yeah, this is where my amazingness was not kicking in, and i had to figure out what to do. I get my host mom, who finds some people in town that have an avacado tree, crisis diverted. Plus now I have my host mom there to help me make the guacamole.

Guacamole isn't really made here, because they tend to only use avacados as a dessert. There are avacado shakes, and my host mom said she loves eating them out of the peel with just sugar sprinkled on them. So, that being said, she kept wanting to add sugar to the guacamole... but I had a feeling that was just not right. :)

It was all super delicious.
