dressing up the fridge

I made a simple fabric pocket and put some strong magnets in the back for a coupon holder for the fridge--- rather than having them scattered across the whole fridge... so i've cleaned it up a bit. woohoo!

Also I added some color using this idea from d*S and I think it looks pretty awesome.

I picked up a "green skinned avocado" at the grocery store - it was HUGE and same price as the other avocados. It was hard as a rock and when I got home I noticed that the sticker said "Slimcado-half the fat of regular avocados" OK.....

I waited four days until it had softened
It looked pretty normal on the inside - tasted it and it was pretty blah.
But I jazzed it up with some home grown tomatoes, serrano, cilantro, salt and garlic for really really good guacamole. BUT it was more liquidy than normal because the slimcado has a high water content. One avocado made a pretty large amount of guac. Will stick with my normal avocados though.
