Sometimes guacamole should be trashed up.

I'm fully in favor of adding bacon, garlic, tomato, pine nuts, pineapple, and mango among other ingredients to make a festive guacamole.  But then there are the times when you return home from the grocery store with an avocado and a lime, and you think, yesss, Guac.

That's pretty much all this recipe is: lime and avocado and salt.  But somehow it's perfect.  Low stress, full flavor.  And if you have stress coming from other areas of life {read: obsessive house hunt, final weeks of masters program, trying to imagine all the things in your home in boxes, and how exactly will that happen?}, then three ingredients is all you need for anything.

Well, also chips.  Don't forget those.

Purist Guacamole
I'm almost ashamed that this is a recipe, but just in case it hadn't already crossed your mind...

1 ripe avocado
1 whole lime
1/8 teaspoon salt

Mash up the avocado and squeeze in the juice from the whole lime.  Stir well and add a pinch of salt.

Just in case you need some resolution: we found our new home, I'm one exam away from being a Master, and my mother promised to help me pack :) Deep breaths, everyone.  {Personally, I've also been wafting lavender like it's a controlled substance}
