I am a fantastic sister, and I dare my siblings to tell me otherwise. (One of the perks of being oldest is making dramatic claims that no one can counter.) Being a fantastic sister gives me leave to brag, though, so brag I will. Today, you are treated to one brag for each sibling, because it’s a little busy on the peds floor, and I don’t have time to write an encyclopedia.

I do have two questions for you – what have you always wanted to know about life as a medical student and/or what questions do you have for me? I’d love to fill you in a little bit more on my adventures in med school.
So what is avocado cream? It’s a pudding from the Southern Hemisphere, where they often treat avocado as the fruit that it is. Basically, you whirl together creamy avocado, your favorite citrus and a little bit of sweetener, and then you eat it off the spoon and say it counts as lunch, because it’s a vegetable (which it is not) or breakfast, because it’s a fruit (which it is), or dessert, because it’s called cream (although not in the usual sense.)
I’m sure recipes for this exist, but it’s very common across the Southern Hemisphere, and people just know how to make it. Although there is citrus in it, the cream can still discolor, so make it soon before you plan to serve it.
Makes 4 servings. Allow 10 minutes.
3 tablespoons honey
Cut the avocado from its pit and peel and blend it well (or mash it in a mortar and pestle.) Juice the grapefruit and add the juice to the avocado, then puree til smooth. Add juice from the lemon and one lime to taste, then adjust sweetness with the honey. Slice the other lime to serve as garnish. Best served immediately.
