Imitation Guacamole

Hi folks, I’m running a little late today as we went out to beat the turkey shoppers of next week and I call them turkeys for a reason, who in their right mind would fight the crowds in the grocery stores next week? I hope I didn’t offend anyone out there, but I like to get my shopping done early and avoid the crowds, so I can spend time in my kitchen getting everything ready for the big day! It’s bad enough I have to go renew my driver’s license next Tuesday before it expires on Friday and it’s been crazy around here trying to find all the things required to renew! Last time you just showed up with your old license and that was it. Now you have to have all sorts of documents proving who you are, where you live and a marriage license to prove your change of name, INSANITY to say the least! Well today is National Guacamole Day and I thought I’d share this recipe for those who don’t like avocado or for those who can’t buy them fresh, so on with the shoe!

Imitation Guacamole
  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen English peas
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp chopped green chilies
  • 1 teas lime juice
  • ½ teas cumin
  • ¼ teas salt
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded, chopped tomato
  • Fresh chopped cilantro
  1. Cook peas just until tender, drain well.
  2. Puree peas in blender; add the next 6 ingredients and process until well blended.
  3. Chill mixture until serving time, mixing in the onion and tomato at that time.
  4. Top with the fresh cilantro.


You know how to serve them, get out the tortilla chips and enjoy!

Country Farmers Breakfast

Since it’s almost the end of the All American Breakfast month, I thought I’d add another recipe that has everything but the kitchen sink, all whooped up into one pan, easy clean up for the cook! Tomorrow will be the last day of the month for me and that means more crazy holidays to share and I have a couple of recipes I’d like to get in before October marks the calender, so here we go…

Country Farmers Breakfast
  • ½ cup shredded American cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1-1/2 tbsp chopped onion (I use scallions)
  • ½ medium tomato, chopped
  • 3 boiled small potatoes (Boil some extra potatoes the night before and keep them for breakfast)
  • ½ teas salt
  • ¼ teas fresh ground black pepper
  1. Cook bacon until crisp, let drain on paper towels and break into small pieces.
  2. Reserve one tablespoon of the bacon drippings in the skillet and add the onions, tomato, potatoes (that have been diced) and seasonings.
  3. Saute until potatoes start to brown nicely.
  4. Add the eggs and stir mixture, cooking to desired doneness of the eggs.
  5. Add cheese and mix well.
  6. Serve nice and hot!


I hope you enjoy!
