    I saw a recipe on Epicurious recently that I've wanted to try. Avocado, take out the pit, fill it with crab meat. I like crabs and I like avocado. Bi-winning.
    Try this. (Their oils are fabulous, by the way.) http://www.latourangelle.com/recipes...o_crab_stuffed

    I have to admit that I really do not like avocado.

    Me neither. I don't get the adoration.

    I wonder if you would have felt the need to mention this is Matt hadn't done so first.

    Would not even taste an avacado until my mid 20s but now I like the really nice creamy ones. I like them to add richness and fatty mouthfeel to things since I do not eat much in the way of bread, etc. So I can have a nice, say chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, and the sliced avacados somehow compensate for no bread.

    but incidentally, avocado on toast with a bit of S+P is one of life's great simple pleasures [​IMG]

    We'll stamp that on your one-way ticket out of California.

    Where are you shopping?
    Depends. I buy organic produce from a few stands at the Hollywood Farmer's Market, other produce and EVOO at Jons, an Armenian Supermarket. Meat is from the HFM, or a local butcher, or Seafood City (thanks Russ), or some supermarket. Herbs never cost me more than a dollar, or a buck fifty. Hey impolyt, I got you a present. It's in the California thread.

    What a disappointment you are.

    I love guacamole, but otherwise, no thanks.
