Mostly about food, this blog is just a place for me to throw things that are of interest to me. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by an look around. This represents just some of the stops on the various pathways that this amateur home cook finds himself.

You may find that these foods tend toward protein and away from carbohydrates - this is due to diabetic issues, so I try to only sparingly use carbs, and good ones at that. Of course, sometimes I forget....

Feel free to drop me a line with any suggestions or just to let me know what you think. Thanks!

Avocado Crema

Okay, this isn't my idea originally, but it's a really good garnish topping. Very classy looking and a great final garnish on things pork and chicken.

1 ripe avocado, peeled and pit removed
1/2 cup buttermilk (or cream, but add extra T of lime)
3 tablespoons lime juice (from about 1 1/2 limes)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt

Puree all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pour into a small squeeze bottle. It should be a good consistency for squirting without being runny. If not, add a little more lime juice or cream. Cap the bottle and chill until read to use. It only keeps a few days, so use it well!

Yield: 1 1/3 cup

The crema was excellent on my crispy fried chicken thights today.
