The Best Guacamole

My parents are rockstars. My registration for my not so new car finally came in the mail so they hopped in the car and took a trip down to visit us for the afternoon. Before they hopped in the car my mother made a pit stop at the market to load us up on fresh veggies, made us sauce, pesto and roasted red pepper pesto, brought fixings for paninis for lunch for us and Tay, Teresa and Emily and got stuff to hang all our things on the walls since we were sick of staring at white walls.

No more white walls!
 The project  Tess and I did back in June...
Among other things so it now looks more like a home than a prison!

I asked my mother if she would make us lunch because who doesn't love a home cooked meal by their momma? She said of course, and even brought everything to make the food. We decided to make queso and guacamole (aka guac) for the sides because who doesn't love those things?

Guac is a personal fav of Tess, Al and myself and we found such a good recipe I shared it last year and got Mariah and Emily hooked so it seemed appropriate.
