Avocado Red

The market had bags of small avocados for sale, and I couldn't resist!  After-all a girl has to eat lunch... and avocados  are packed full of delicious nutrients, making them a perfect 'fast' food... in a slow food kind of way.
I was reading on-line that avocados are perfect for homemade baby food.  The article says that the avocado's smooth, creamy consistency makes it one of the first fresh fruits a baby can enjoy.  They can be mashed and served in a variety of ways and do not require cooking.  For variety, avocados can be mixed with apple or pear sauce, cooked squash or sweet potatoes.  Hey, wait a minute!  I think some of these mixes sound rather yummy for adults too!  Move over guacamole.

wowie - these are lovely! the colors together are really popping, and you've really caught the creaminess of the avocados - and even the texture of the empty space from the pit! thank you!

Avocados make such a scrumptious painting subject! Nice work.
