I find myself having sad moments just about every day even though it is two years since I lost Peter. However…there are one or two things in my life that are better. I get the front page of the newspaper every morning AND I can buy avocados.
Since 2000 avocados have been mainstream, but not in my house. Peter found them inedible, and I didn’t buy them. One measure of their increasing popularity is that in 2018 over 2.4 million social media posts were avocado-related. And in 2021, 3,220 million lbs. were sold (according to Statistica).
And now they are a staple on my grocery list. It did take a while for me to figure out the perfect moment to refrigerate them. Now, my almost-daily salad never lacks a half of one of those delicious delicacies.
In these troubled times, an avocado can make one's day.
