Chaya's Guacamolesource: Corey Seeman

I got this guacamole from a young friend of mine. Chaya got the recipe from her mom, and I haven’t been able to trace back the source beyond that. If anyone knows, please let me know.

Ingredients

1 ripe avocado, peed removed and mashed

1 medium tomato, chopped

1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise

1/8 teaspoon garlic

2 squeezes fresh lemon

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

Directions

Mix all ingredients together. Chill if time allows.

Serve with crackers.

Note: The guacamole came out very good,  but I believe some onion would make this recipe even more delicious. I will try adding a tablespoon or two of chopped red onion the next time I make this.

Stracciatella Soupsource: roboppy

I wanted something nice and healthy for lunch today so I decided to make a pot of Stracciatella Soup. With a slice of bread, this soup makes a good all-in-one meal. The original recipe came from Joy of Cooking, but I made so many changes that it now looks nothing like the original.

Ingredients:

1 single serving envelope of onion bouillon soup

1 4 serving envelope of chicken bouillon soup

3/4 cup frozen baby carrots

3 oz. frozen spinach

1 egg

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp. Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon dry breadcrumbs

Directions:

Bring 5 cups of water to boil in a medium pot. Add the envelopes of soup mix and the vegetables and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Combine the egg, garlic, Parmesan and breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Stir well.

Pour the egg mixture into the pot of soup and stir. Let simmer for one more minute and serve immediately.

Makes 4-5 servings.
