You may notice that one of the main stars of this combination is goat cheese. For any of you who have been pregnant or are just a wealth of knowledge - yes, I ate goat cheese while I was pregnant. I'll address that a little later. First, let's get down to guacamole business.
What you'll need:
3 Ripe, Haas Avocados
1/3 C crumbled goat cheese
1 ear of roasted corn (stick it in your broiler on 500 degrees until it gets nice and brown)
1/4 C. chives
the juice of a lemon
the juice of a lime
sea salt and pepper
a dash of cumin
Roast the ear of corn, set aside and allow to cool. Halve up the avocados and scoop out the guts into a bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients by smashing it up with a fork and season to taste with the salt, pepper and cumin. Fold in the roasted corn and serve with Tortilla chips or my personal favorite Terra Chips (trust the blogger).
Tip: Leave the avocado seeds in the mix to delay browning of the avocados. Although, I'm not gonna lie...it's hard to keep this stuff lying around in excess.
And now...onto a topic that may or may not have readers giving me the stink eye through the computer screen. The truth is...I cheat on my pregnancy sometimes. Let's start with the acknowledgement that everything out there could possibly be bad for you while you are pregnant. Don't eat sushi, because it may have bacteria that could turn your baby into a toad. Don't drink more than 100 mg. of caffeine a day or else your baby will have ADHD. Don't sleep on your back because your baby will have better circulation if you are on your side. It's enough to make me want to stay in a constant state of hibernation until my perfectly made goat cheese-less baby comes on out. Whoever said pregnancy was 9 months long was a man. It's actually 10 months of acting as a incubator for the most precious, important thing in your life. And yes, it is beautiful but I'm on my second wack at this pregnancy thing and it is damn hard. The restrictions, the emotional swings and yes, even the changing of your once toned mini dress wearing bod. It's really hard. In fact, it's the hardest thing I've ever done. Twice now. (Pats self on back)
I'm not going to lie - there are things I'm pretty smitten with about pregnancy - giving up alcohol for me is a breeze, having someone else carry in my groceries is quite nice and wearing a constant rotation of the most comfortable elastic waist pants is a welcomed one. I'm pretty good at being pregnant, but sometimes when I can't stand water any longer, I will have a very small amount of coca cola and on occasion, I will mix in some goat cheese with my guacamole. For these small indiscretions, I digress. I hope the baby doesn't mind.
