This Week's Appetizing News

In This Week's Appetizing News, we wish to offer our humble congratulations to the New Orleans Saints, for their Super Bowl XLIV victory last Sunday!

Now, let's consider that ...

  • their prestigious championship deserves an honorary recipe,
  • last Friday was - surprise! - World Nutella Day,
  • Di is working on a new concept for us called "French Fridays",
  • next Tuesday is Mardi Gras (New Orleans is so busy this month!) and,
  • we love our French tour merchants and, our fans in France (hence the baguettes)!

With great pride and joy, Di offers her New Orleans-inspired guacamole recipe. It was originally developed for the Chilean Avocado Board, in 2004 for the Sugar Bowl game. Served with toasted baguette slices, admittedly it seems quite strange and unusual ... until you get a taste and, can't stop eating it! Try it for a Mardi Gras celebration or anytime you have occasion for boasting a fantastic new appetizer!

Just enjoy! On behalf of my lovely sister Lisa, you are wished delicious hours around the table this week, especially with those you love!

Until next time, I remain,

Diane Scalia
