Apparently watching the tv show “Girls” makes me want to eat green dips. I wrote a post a couple months ago about the spinach dip I made for an evening of “Girls”-viewing with friends, and when we had “Girls”-night Part 2, I begged my friend Liora to make her famous gaucamole.
This is truly the BEST guacamole I’ve ever had. And I have eaten a fair share of guac in my day. Liora was kind enough to figure out the measurements, but she said they can vary depending on your taste preferences.
Liora’s AMAZING Gaucamole
3 avocados (ripe)
1 diced tomato (medium)
1/2 finely diced red onion
1/2 finely chopped jalapeno
1 handful chopped cilantro
1 and a 1/2 limes juiced
salt to taste
Mash avocado, add in veggies, juice, and salt. Mix. Serve.
So what’s our verdict on the show? Well, the group of women I watch with are a bunch of queer and/or feminist grad students (and some, specifically critical media studies grad students). That is to say: we have opinions. The show is problematic in a lot of ways—(once again there is a show set in New York that is entirely white)—-but potentially important in a lot of ways, too—(something interesting is happening with the non-normative body type of our protagonist, for example).
But this is not a blog about critical media studies. (If you’re interested in those things, you can visit my other blog.)
What you really want to know is the verdict on the guac. And trust me when I say: Best. Guacamole. Ever.
Do you like guacamole? Have you seen “Girls”? Do you like analyzing TV shows or just watching them for entertainment?
