I like guacamole - that is my preferred way to eat avocados.

Today is National avocado day. How do you like to eat them?

In salads but mostly just peel, halve and eat.

They're really fattening, so I'll just have 1/8 of an avocado on a salad, which is the equivalent of a teaspoon of oil.

I am from the Detroit area and it is famous for the two downtown restaurants that fight over who makes the best Coney Island Hot Dogs. The battle has been on the Travel Network and Food Network. American Coney Island vs. Lafayette Coney Island. I have been to both and can not pick a clear cut winner. They are soooooo good! Coney Island hot dogs are served by many restaurants in the Detroit Area. I usually have about 10 a year. I like mine with "light" chilly and mustard. In Tucson they have the famous Sonoran Dog. It is a bacon wrapped dog in a traditional bun with a variety of toppings, usually refried beans, cheese, onions, tomato, quacamole and or salsa verde. I prefer the Detroit Coney Island Dog.

It is much easier to make time for myself now that I am retired and away from my immediate family back in Michigan. I enjoy my golf, cooking and continuing to make improvements to our new home.
