So, the flavor of the week seems to be avocado. Avocado hummus, avocado smoothies... avocado cupcakes?
And I'm cringing just as much now, as I did when I took my first taste of avocado ice cream back in 1984, at a 4-H convention... well, at least when it comes to the sweet stuff.
Guess even in food, everything old is new again.
But, it's been fun watching the food trends over the last 5 months that I've been blogging.
First Nutella (wonder if Giada is getting royalties?) Then the healthier snacks, like kale chips and roasted chick peas. The rice and pizza crust replacer, cauliflower (you all are just finally trying this?) Grains made good again, like quinoa and the newly touted super grain farro (my vegan friends are smiling). And don't forget Srirach, which like the white sauce at a Japanese Hibachi Grill... is "good on everything," or at least the bloggers have told me so. Sorry people, spice wimp here.
