Homemade Guacamole

Everyone has their own version of guacamole. I have tried multiple friend’s recipes as well as multiple restaurants and never had the same guac twice. Although they all have their own unique twist, I enjoy them all! We love guacamole as a snack accompanied with tortilla chips as well as on burritos!

Here is my version. Feel free to alter and make it your own!

Ingredients:
4 avocados (soft enough you can make an indent in them but not ripe enough that they are mush)
1/4 cup of diced red onion
1/2 cup of diced tomato
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. of minced garlic
1/4 tsp. cilantro leaves
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. creole seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Begin by peeling, pitting and mashing the avocados in a large bowl. Finely dice the red onion and tomato and add to the bowl. Add the spices, lime juice and use a potato masher to mash everything together, then use a fork to mix the ingredients well. Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve immediately at room temperature with your favourite chips or as a topping for burritos or another meal of your choosing! Enjoy!

Autumn Outings

A few weeks ago on a chilly but sunny October day, my husband and I spent the afternoon driving around the local countryside. Not really having a plan in mind we stumbled across Primitive Designs and had to stop to check it out! 

Primitive Designs is a unique shop that sells exotic and hand crafted pieces from around the world.

This amazing shop has an abundance of carvings, tiki huts, furniture, pottery, jewellery, clothing and pretty much anything and everything unique you could possibly be looking for!

And of course if that doesn’t draw you in, the massive hand-built Transformers guarding the entrance will!
After doing some shopping, we continued on to Otonabee River to do some hiking.
Along the way we met this adorable but quite nosey donkey…
…and a very curious emu! It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday!
