The avocado does look beautiful. And delicious! I've never tried to grill avocados. I don't see why not though. Although, they are really tasty just by themselves!

I've never heard of grilling an avocado. I wonder how it would work with an electric grill or a stovetop grilling pan? I'd rather fill it with something other than salsa. Any ideas?

My easy vegetarian dish for the week was pickled eggs and beets. I cheated this time and used already pickled beets from a jar. I usually use a can of sliced beets and add my own vinegar and sugar.

My find of the week was the CVS store brand (Gold Emblem) Asian Blend Trail Mix. It has rice crackers, wasabi peas, sesame sticks, peanuts, almonds, and cashews. Yum! I loved the hot spiciness of the wasabi and was glad to find a trail mix that didn't have raisins or other dried fruit for a change of pace.
