THANK YOU SCARBELLY !!!
I got a care package from my Buddy "Scarbelly" last week---What a guy !!!!
Gary sent me a bag of his Awesome Smoked Mixed Nuts. They didn't last long, as my Son helped devour them during the Penn State game.
He also sent me some Avocados!!!
I never had Avocados before, and I tried just tasting it fresh, but it didn't thrill me.
However, Gary also sent me a couple of Avocado recipe links, so I had all kinds of options to use these beautiful California Avos with.
As you will see below, my favorite was the Avocado-Cornbread Muffins. They were very good, and even better after I poured a little real maple syrup on them, and nuked them up a little!!!
I also stirred up a mixture of Salsa & Avocado for a pretty tasty Dip to use on some "Scoops".
I didn't take any pictures of the nuts, but here is a link to a great thread.

I did take some pics of my Muffin making (Below), and the Salsa.
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup whole milk
1 large ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, mashed
1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 12-muffin tray.
2) Sift together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in eggs and milk until smooth. Add avocado and mix until just smooth.
3) Pour mixture into prepared muffin tray. Bake until tops turn golden, about 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in tray; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

BTW: I didn't have any "Whole Milk", so I used 2 ounces of Butter Milk, and one ounce of 2% Milk---Worked Great !
Thanks A Lot Gary----You're the Greatest !!!
