Avocado & Lime Sauce





I have to report that due to the time change, general location, and the suns new freakish position in accordance with my window I am now the proud owner of a soon to be here photo box…Can’t wait till it arrives...and I figure it out (non instruction reader in da'house).


Speaking of this Photo box, I am sitting here envisioning stuffing Indigo in there for good lighting! LOL, not sure if she would cooperate.


More speaking, my husband helped me whip this up for a snazzy dinner last night and we we’re quite happy with the results. This sauce would be mighty good on no less than 3,942.1 things. No, really – we counted!






Delightfully borrowed from the one and only FOR THE LOVE OF COOKING


INGREDIENTS


1 ripe avocado
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
3 cloves of garlic
Sea Salt & Pepper for taste
1-2 tbs of Olive Oil
½ tbs red wine vinegar
Juice from 2 limes







DIRECTIONS

Mix all of your ingredients in a food processor, or like me….I do not have one. I simply chopped it all up and mashed with a potato masher, then transferred to my blender.






Now, time to put hubby to work.. We served this great sauce with sliced sirloin and a side dish of black beans, chopped roma tomatoes, and cheddar cheese.

SO excited to see the results of your photo box! I got a new lens a few months ago to help photograph when I can't use natural light...and I've had mixed results.

Avocado lime sounds like the perfect flavor combination. I could slather than on just about anything.

I just left this long comment about lighting and oops forgot to put the password in. Duh. I am just too tired. What I was going to say... Despite your frustration with the lighting. I thought your pics here were cool. And I did not know about photo boxes so I am off to check em out.

My Dad is working on a light box for me too - I hate it getting dark so early! I like your pictures here - they look mysterious and kind of sexy. Your dinner is crazy delicious looking!

Faith said...

aaagh! Im in the PacnW and the constant rain+dark nights has hubs building me a light box too!!! Mmm your sauce looks amazing, and I think that I could come up with AT LEAST 4,000 uses!

scrambledhenfruit said...

I'm wanting a light box! Can't wait to see what you think of yours. That sauce is delish!

Sue said...

Sounds delicious! We would both love it!

girlichef said...

This sounds so tasty! And I actually love the darkness in the photos...it's fun- 'specially w/ your cool table and the black flower...love it! But I am jealous that you're getting a light box. I have to put the hubs to work making me one....

Jenn said...

I saw this recipe on Pam's site too....now here...it must be a sign that I need to make this!!
How exciting about the photo box too... I'll just tell you know, I'm totally envious!! :)

Clements Family said...

What a great sauce...and amazing flavors.
PS...what is a photo box?

Jennifurla said...

C Family - A Photo box is a great way to *light* your pics. It is an enclosed white box with side lighting to really enhance pictures with quality lighting. You place and object inside of it and it gives great lighting even if pitch black surrounds it.

Raina said...

I have been wanting to get a photo box...someday.

Your sauce sounds so yummy. Love, love that you put it on sirloin. I think even my kiddies would love this. I have been trying to think of things to fix for dinner for the rest of the week. Thanks for giving me dinner number one:)

Georgia (The Comfort of Cooking) said...

Your light box will no doubt help you a great deal, Jen! I'd explain to you what I do for good lighting at night, but it might take a while - Good news is that it's CHEAP and it works! This lime sauce, however, still looks absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Ingrid said...

Great another sauce to get addicted to! lol

Did I tell you I made the Chimichurri Sauce and served it over london broil? We loved it. The kids mixed it into their mash potatoes & dipped focaccia into it! They're pretty smart aren't they?

I always feel welcomed when I come to a blog for the first time and see a picture of a grill.

Excellent looking plate, even without a light box....just yet:)

You know I owe my newfound love of avocados to you, right? You created avocado monsters in my house. LOVE. And photo box?? Amazing. I never thought to get one. But that would be pretty sweet. Report back on how it works!!

Kim said...

Okay...this sauce sounds like some addictive stuff! Love it.

Congrats on the photo box. I'm going through a similiar situation with the time change, change in lighting, etc. Been thinking about ordering a photo box myself.

Deborah said...

I hear you - the sun kind of messes up food photography this time of year, doesn't it? This sauce is something we'd love - and I can think of so many great things it could go on!
