Happy Friday everyone! I was listening to the radio this morning when I heard this hilarious story about guacamole. I myself am a HUGE guacamole fan, and yes I will pay extra for it when I’m out at a restaurant. I also love making it at home; I either make a really simple version (just avocados, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and lime juice) or actually add diced tomatoes, garlic, onions and cilantro. You really can’t go wrong. Or can you?!
Well, apparently you can! The New York Times posted to Twitter a guacamole recipe … that included peas. Yes, peas. Guacamole with peas?! I don’t know, it sounded weird to me — and apparently I’m not the only one! The New York Times received HUGE outrage online in response to their ‘pea post’, and even President Obama spoke up tweeting:
You must read the articles about the guacamole-pea outrage (here’s one about how some people are defending the pea addition). It’s a great Friday Find and a great reminder that you should probably make guacamole tonight (with or without peas, that’s up to you!).
Happy Friday and Long Live Guacamole!
