Best ever guacamole!!!!!!!

The blond likes guacamole, he’s Californian after all so it’s hardly surprising. He told me that I make Mexican food far too well for someone that comes from London…I’ll take that as a complement. Now this guacamole is super simple – 4 mushed avocado, a pinch of salt, juice from half a lime, 1-2 small […]
