If habanero peppers are the taste of Evil, then avocados are the taste of Love. Wonderful, delicious, love. They are one of only two foods I can think of that go with any other food - meat, fish, fruit, any vegetable, dairy, and chocolate. The only other food that can do this is bacon. Cheese? Maybe. I'll have to ponder that...
Can you think of a food avocado doesn't go with? I didn't think so.
Avocado paintings are quick paintings, because it doesn't take long for them to turn color after they're open. Always a good idea to paint them first. No one wants a grey avocado.
