When I lived in California we had an Avocado tree in the back yard that produced enough for the whole neighborhood and my favorite way to eat them is still just sprinkle on a little salt and pepper and dig in with a spoon.

I worry about what will happen if the President closes the border as well.  I love avocados and the fact that they are so healthy for you.  I didn't realize until recently that they have more potassium than bananas ant that they can help to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I like avocados too prepared in a lot of ways I doubt that's the only way we can get them though lol there's such a supply and demand for them.

Avocados are creamy and yummy!  My husband actually disliked them for a long time, but it's something he's warmed up to since we got married.  He makes a mean avocado toast  ;)

The only think I use avocado for is I blend a small amount in my green smoothie. (Kiwi-green grape) .. It doesn't seem to change the taste at all and I feel like I'm eating just a little bit healthier.

America has really taken to Mexican foods.  I also love avocados and will miss them.  I assume we can get them from somewhere, but the cost may be higher.

Probably cheaper. They have them in California. And the boarder will never close any way.

I think it is hilarious that all anybody is worried about is not having avocados . lol  They come from California as well.

I like Avocado's just about any way you make them. Just wish we had a decent store here to buy them.  And when they finally get some in  they go bad in just a few days and are very expensive. A coupe of weeks ago I  stopped at Kroger's on the way home and bout several for  50cents apiece large ones too. I had bought  4 a week or so ago before I bought the good ones and they were $1.50  each here.  Their trouble is they want to make a fortune on them so try to sell them high and then when they start to get way to soft ant turn black inside they lower the price. and no one will buy them. Seems to me there  could be a middle ground and  they could sell most of them without losing any. Oh well their problem.

My favorite way to eat an avocado is to slice it and put it on toast.  Sometimes I will add a slice of swiss cheese and tomato slice.  My daughter will grill that combination like a grilled cheese. 
Either way is delicious.

I love avocados and if the President closes the border, we won't have them here. I love guac.  :(

California grows avocados.... you'll be fine.
Here in California avocados were .39cents each at ALDI's last week when supposedly the prices of avocado went up because of the closing the border scare.   

Stop believing the lies on MSM, it's just propaganda.
