Is it strange that I decided to do my first post on Avocados?.. probably. I know they aren't indigenous to here, they are actually from Mexico where I probably had my first avocado when I was young. However, when I think of avocados, I think of here. Maybe because Roger grows them here? and I did live on the farm for a while? Maybe!

I LOVE Avocados. Avocados in salad, avocados on toast, just plain-ol-avo with salt, pepper and lemon juice. They are fantastic... except they may possibly be the cause of my weight gain?

I love food! I love FRESH food, and a huge part of what makes me enjoy South Africa is how accessible fresh food is. From Roger growing fresh fruit & vegetables on the farm, to buying meat at the local butcher, to buying butternut squash on the side of the road - the fresh local options are endless. My tastebuds are satisfied!
