Life Lessons

I've been in Portland the past few days, and I've learned a few things while I've been here. I'd thought I'd take the opportunity to share some of them with you:

1. Don't shoplift, even on accident, which leads me to #2
2. If you're holding clothes for your friend while she is in the fitting room, DO NOT put said clothes under your jacket and then forget about them until you're out of the store and things start falling on the ground and everybody is looking at you and thinking that you're a criminal.
3. Graciously return said items and realize that you nearly started a career as a small time theif.
4. Do NOT buy a denim onesie, just don't.
5. Do NOT buy a yellow polyester onesie.
6. Enjoy your friends - they provide nice memories...and shoplifting stories. :)

Allow Me To Change Your Life...

4 small vine ripened tomatoes
2 large avocados
1 lemon
4 small radishes
2-3 inches cilantro (from bunch)
¼ onion
Salt to taste

Finely chop tomatoes, onion, radishes and cilantro and place in medium bowl. Slice avocadoes into 1/2 chunks (larger pieces keep your pico from turning into guac) and place into bowl. Roll lemon with your hand to loosen juices, cut in half and squeeze juice into mixture. Add salt to taste.

Tip: Before placing chopped tomatoes in bowl, put them in a strainer and run some cold water over them and drain well. This keeps the pico from getting too soupy.

That's it! Have your whole life changed! You're welcome. :)
P.S. Photo above is not how it should look, but I am unable to take pictures of food without it looking gross to me.

This one is mine. See?
