Avocados, Mangoes, And The Olympics




Is your husband a sports addict?  Mine is, and now with the olympics going on, he records every single sport 24 hours a day.  He'll probably be watching until Thanksgiving.
It's avocado and mango season and as I have mentioned previously, it's not unusual there is a bag outside my door, thanks to my lovely neighbors.  Last night, I cooked Enchilado de Camarones (Shrimp in a special sauce.)  This is one of my favorite savory dishes. You can serve them as an appetizer or main dish.  The sauce is amazing and if your gluttonous self takes over, take a piece of bread and clean the pot!
