I love love love chips.  And I like all kinds really – potato, corn, rice, etc.   I blame my childhood for my love affair with chips.  I grew up eating mostly homemade food for meals and snacks. We had chips like once or twice a month! So as I got older and started getting daily allowance, my first visit after school was to a convenience store to spend my money on those forbidden chips!  Arkadi is not a chip person, he’d rather munch on radishes for his snack!  So to please us both, we like to make guacamole and have it with chips and salad.  This way, both of us get what we want  – I get my chip craving satisfied and Arkadi gets to snack on something healthy!  This guacamole recipe is so fast and easy to make and you likely already have some, if not most, of the ingredients at home anyway! So here’s the recipe for you to try out:

    Haha me too!!! We grew up a little differently though. My love affair with chips started as my parents fed us chips whenever we wanted. Evil parents ;p Ah well.
    Guacamole and bean chips is my favourite snack right now – so yummy!
    Love the nailpolish in the pic btw – I think I just bought the exact same colour =)
