________________
My food anthology of 2005 featured baby spinach, butternut squash, dried cranberries, and goat cheese. So far 2006 has multi-colored carrots, pre-seasoned tofu, avocado*, and white asparagus. Nothing that new, just preparing them in new ways (which sounds a bit like some ways to think or not think about poetry).

*I tended to avoid avocado in the past, but now I'm more agnostic about the fat content ("good fat"), and the nearby Trader Joes sells a price-friendly bag of four that is too tempting to pass up.

avocado is the food of the gods.
they just tell you it's nectar so that you won't steal their avocados.

yep, yum yum. sliced avocado on top of salads, esp with the aforementioned baby spinach.

Concurring. Avocados are not to be avoided.

Kap -- may I? -- avocado is official SUPERFOOD (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=
/chronicle/archive/2006/01/04/FDGQBGG57F1.DTL)
& if combined with tomato? SUPERABSORBING.

okay, avocados forever. i don't know how i ever had a suspicion of them. do the makers of salsa have a campaign against guacamole? maybe i sneered at the price tag
(1$/avocado at grocery stores except trader joe's).

anyway good to see blueberries & dark chocolate on the list. i am in the clear with those. and brussels sprouts too, as long as they are cooked in butter and garlic. (well actually i'd eat anything including my tennis shoe if it was cooked in butter and garlic.) now if i can just get a car that runs on switchgrass, then i will be smoking.
