We figured that tacos are about as American as apple pie and a fitting dinner for a patriotic holiday. We were going to grill the shrimp and eat outside but it got very windy so we ended up cooking and eating inside. In addition to these yummy tacos we also had tortilla chips and guacamole and spicy black beans. We were lucky that our mango and avocado were ripe at the right moment. I put them in a paper bag with an apple to speed up ripening.
Speaking of ripe avocados I read an article saying that you can hold a ripened avocado if you submerge it in water and refrigerate it. With further investigation I also read that the FDA says this is a big NO because it promotes growth of listeria and salmonella. So don’t assume that everything you read on the internet is true!
Hope everyone had a thoughtful, reflective Memorial Day honoring those who died in service to our country.
