I was an adult the first time I tried an avocado. Maybe my lack of exposure to avocados was due to a sheltered childhood, or maybe it was because I didn't live in CA, or maybe I thought they looked weird. I can't remember. But when I did try an avocado for the first time I was hooked. Smooth, creamy, nutty, and good for you. Lately, my favorite use for avocados is on top of an egg sandwich (really, try it!).
