Mama comes for a visit

Got a visit from my mama today.  And she brought goodies. 

Lots of avocados means lots of guac.  I made a few batches and gave some away.








Holy, canoly, guacamole!

My mama also brought me some of her guava marmalade.  I’m going to have to watch myself with this one.

Treat # 3 is her fish croquettes….OMG these ROCK!  It’s actually a long process to make these that I’m not quite ready for but the end result is delish.  They’re spicy and would go great with a nice cold beer.  I heated some olive oil (super hot), fried them for a couple of minutes and they’re done!  YES I said fried, but I really didn’t use that much oil.

I served up 2 croquettes with some avocado for lunch. So good.

Later in the afternoon I enjoyed a cup of mango/spinach/smoothie and then in the early evening I went for a 30 minute walk around the neighborhood.  It was so muggy out tonight. 

I’m going to catch up on Biggest Looser.   I didn’t like it when Jillian grabbed Shay’s shirt last week and dragged her like she’s a dog on a leash.  I know they need tough love but that was a bit much.  I like Bob.

What do you think of Bob n Jillian’s tough love?
