Default Avocado Festival

Just wanted to put this on everyone's radar. California Avocado Festival Oct 2, 3, 4 in Carpinteria California. Aside from me being an Avocado freak I'll be renting a lens for the event so In hopes for some impressive photos.

Nope, but they will have Avocado Ice Cream at the festival. I'll have to try it with Vanilla. Another good, yet weird, combo is eating Avocado with a Dill Pickle lol.

Try it. You'll like it!

And I will agree with the pita pocket picklings, though the term boiled chicken sounds funny.

Seriously Tom... A veggie with ice cream ? I just don't know about that... Perhaps I will be brave enough to try it someday. Well. technically it is a fruit... I will give ya that...

Boiled chicken... you just buy chicken tenders and boil them in water, then chop it up and throw it in the pita.. or you can pan fry and that taste good too..

Just think of it as avocado smoothie but real thick, OK? And yes, it's a fruit - kind of like the tomato.

I was just teasing about boiled chicken. We boil it some times then separate the meat and simmer the rest to make broth.

There's a town in California south of San Jose called Gilroy where they hold annual festival with everything related to garlic. I haven't been by there at the right time but I believe my sister said they even have garlic ice cream. I don't know if she'd ever tried it. I would have.
