Lions Plate: Homemade guacamole

I am lucky that I can say that all the students on my freshman floor were really friendly, and we quickly formed a bond. One of our favorite activities was you guessed it eating, however, the lack of ovens in the freshmen dorms made cooking a challenge. Eventually, my friend cracked the code. He threw his door open, blasted music through his amplifier and started making guacamole.

It took him forever to mash the avocados and there were cilantro stems smushed into the floor, but it was worth spending time with friends. Despite our busy schedules, homemade guacamole brought us together.

I encourage you to grab these convenient ingredients from the C-Store or the local grocery store and reward yourself and your friends for all of your hard work.
