Foodie Friday {Guacamole & White Sangria}…

Have you missed Foodie Fridays?

I have missed cooking.  We decided to forgo the grocery store this week and use up what we had in the refrigerator and pantry.  It is Friday and I am going a little crazy.  I like planned menus and planned meals.  This “use what we have” nonsense is better left for those fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants kinda person.  And that ain’t me. 😉

Summer is drawing to a close {I hope sooner rather than later}, but if you want to get more out of those tomatoes and veggies…


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1-2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper
  1. Mash avocado in a bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  3. Season with salt & pepper.
  4. Serve immediately.


  • 1 bottle white wine (I prefer Sauv Blanc)
  • 1/2 bottle Sprite or Sierra Mist (don’t get the Diet version)
  • 1-2 lemons, sliced
  • 1-2 limes, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon
  • Peaches
  • Pineapple (canned or fresh)
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher.
  2. Serve chilled.

You can mix and match the fruit.  I add whatever is in the refrigerator.  The more the merrier.  Cheers! 🙂

Until next time…
