Stavanger and Guacamole

I found this little gem while going thru some old stuff on my computer. Dinesh had been on a flying visit to Norway with Guruji. One little adventure from that trip πŸ™‚

Guruji, me (dinesh) and a few others reached Stavanger (Norway) in the early morning to a spirited welcome by the volunteers and teachers. We then drove through lovely countryside to a beautiful room with the most amazing view at the Radisson hotel. Guruji gave everyone Indian sweets and Savories and then we went for a walk by the lake and on the streets of Stavanger.

As we were strolling by the lake, couple of pristinely elegant white swans saw Guruji and they got pulled towards Him on the shore. Guruji got some bread and fed them as a mother bird feeds her little baby in the nest. Fred and I were gymnasticking to get good shots of this wonderful sight.

Guruji and the Swans

As we were walking along, there were some extremely cute pictures of various animals on the sidewalk. Guruji liked one very much, not surprisingly, that of the elephants. He asked Fred to go back and get a picture of the picture πŸ™‚

In the conversation, Guruji was told that the volunteers were staying at Hogne’s place, He said, β€œlets go there!”. Now what would you not give to get a surprise like that – answering your door bell and see none other than Guruji at your doorstep?!

So we enter Hogne’s home and Guruji announces that he was hungry. So He took a few Avocados and involved me in making Gaucomole. Here is what we did!

3 ripe avocados

freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Grace πŸ™‚

Cut the avocados into half. Discard the big seed inside.

Cleanly scoop up the green stuff (oxidation may turn it brownish, it is still ok to eat).

Mash into a paste the green stuff of 2 avocados and chop into very small pieces the green stuff of the third one.

Add lemon juice and a dash of olive oil.

Season with salt and pepper to taste (cayenne pepper can pack quite a punch) and mix it throughly with a few Om Namah Shivayas.

Serve cold with warm fuzzy love. Dip bread sticks or raw carrot into it. Spread it on some salty biscuit like krackjack. Spread on your finger and lick πŸ™‚

Jai Gurudeva!
