Alligator Pear

*Breaking News*

alton and avocado

Food Network now comes in HD! And the first show 80P taped for me – an Alton Brown “Good Eats” special on **avocados** !!!

So, there I am, working on a blog post and thinking to myself, “I’m the avocado queen, I can surely show Big A a thing or two…”

Yea, um, what he did with the “alligator pear” is way beyond my capabilities. Although, this has forced me to think about my dedication to the lovely fruit, and I’m in. Alton – it’s a challenge. I will think of something so crazy, so out there, so fucking delicious, you’ll just beg me to guest star on your next avocado themed show.

Mr. Brown’s avocado creations:

avocado butter

Avocado Compound Butter

serve with grilled corn on the cob, burgers, steaks, fish…

Avocado Ice Cream

who has an ice cream maker I can borrow?!?!
and who knew that subbing an egg for an avocado is a totally kosher endeavor

Avocado Buttercream Frosting

the first time I’m agreeing with a trekkie

    LOL..I can’t believe avocado means testicle…also, I’m never eating regular butter again – I can’t wait to go to a restaurant and ask them to bring me avocado butter

    Comcast…ehh not sure the exact channel, somewhere in the mid 200’s, where the other HD channels are. It just showed up last week or so. It’s not even listed on the Comcast website.
