It Isn't Always Sunny In Florida

Tuesday night is taco night in our house.  I have been craving avocado so,  I thought that I would procure one for tonight's dinner.  It so happens that I also had a coupon for $1 Hass avocados at Mariano's.  Sounds perfect, right?  Well, I got to Mariano's and there were no Hass avocadoes to be had.  In their place, I found nice, shiny, green Florida avocados.  I picked one up and thought that I would give it a try.  Well, after trying the avocado tonight, I have found that Florida avocados really pale in comparison to Hass avocados.  I found that the flavor was way too mild and that the avocado lacked the creaminess I love.  I did make a red cabbage slaw to go on our tacos.  I threw some of the avocado into the slaw and it did blend in well.   I have found some recipes for avocado deviled eggs, so I am going to try the remainder of the avocado in a deviled egg connoction.  We will see what happens!  However, when I am reaching for a stand-alone avocado, I am going to grab a Hass avocado!
