May Easy Reader Beach 2010

Cook & Be Merry in the May 2010 issue of the Easy Reader Beach magazine was devoted to the California Avocado. Not only is May the beginning of the avocado season, it is kicked off by the Cinco de Mayo festivities, during which the California Avocado Commission estimates 84.1 million pounds of avocados were consumed in the U.S. this year.

My own recipe in the Beach was Exquisite Salad ~ Rice, Chicken, Asparagus, Avocado with Cilantro Vinaigrette. I have been making this recipe since about 1990, and every time I take it to a potluck, people ask me for the recipe. I was also filmed making this dish for the Torrance Cable Network in 1991. I think the recipe is still on their website. That cracks me up.

I also went to a Food Blogger Lunch at Ciudad restaurant with Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, which was put on by the California Avocado Commission. The Crispy California Avocado Taco recipe in the Beach came from the Ciudad Day, along with Chicken and Avocado Skillet Chilaquiles and the California Avocado and Mango Desert.

The Salmon with Avocado and Sweet Chili Sauce recipe in the Beach came from Grace-Marie’s Kitchen, the Cooking School at Bristol Farms in Manhattan Beach. I think of all the new avocado dishes I ate this month, this was my favorite one. Just awesome. Grace-Marie’s Cinco de Mayo class also included a marvelous Fiesta Papaya, Pineapple and Avocado Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing. Oh, and by the way, Grace-Marie’s Salmon recipe and my photo are going to be featured on the California Avocado Commission’s website in the very near future. I’m so excited about that!

Thank you, Easy Reader Beach Magazine and your artists who take my words and photographs and turn them into such a beautiful creation. You’re the best.

I saw your write up this week. How great is that! Is this a weekly or monthly contribution?

Thanks for all the avocado recipes. I’m such a fan of avocados, I can just eat ’em out of the skin. I’ve whimsically had thoughts of moving to a more temperate place so I could have an avocado and mango tree.

Patti ~ Once a month, second Thursday of each month, the Easy Reader is the glossy Beach Magazine. The other weeks, on Thursday, it is a newspaper on newsprint.

I adore avocados and I think it’s so cool that your recipe was featured in this! I am going to have to check out all the others because there are never too many avocado recipes in my repertoire.

So impressive. I love Avocado. Looks like the lunch was an exploration of that fruit, too much fun.
