When two people from different continents live under one roof it creates a unique set of challenges. Some people refer to them as "cultural differences". There are the big ones like family dynamics and how to celebrate holidays and the day-to-day ones that mostly involve (at least at our house) food! When I first started dating Anderson I was downright annoyed with him. I mean seriously, who doesn't like pecan pie…or vegetables? And yeah, sure beans and rice are okay, but who eats them everyday? How boring. Even though we've been together for several years now, we still disagree on the food thing. He won't taste my cheese grits or casseroles, and I think his quindim is rather bland. So there! And you all know how I feel about red meat-the 6th major food group if you ask a Brazilian!

We've even brought our friends in on the great food debate from time to time. Anderson has been telling me and our buds, Ben and Audrey, about a delicious Brazilian avocado shake for the longest time. He brings it up every time the three of us eat guacamole. (Naturally, he doesn't like guacamole.) So we finally challenged him to PROVE IT!

So here you have it friends…the great avocado shake tutorial.

  1. Liquifier? Loved it! Sometimes I mix it up and said like that to…blender =liquidificador. But wait… coffee in avocado shake?! Weird! hahaha..
    The beans we eat in Brazil everyday have nothing to do with the canned beans.. gross! yuck! But I understand, it's kind of boring! My luck is that I really like food so I don't have a problem here in Canada…and yeah, I'm vegetarian!

  2. I wish you could see the unfortunate face I am making at the thought of eating avocado "liquified" with condensed milk. There's a place here [probably a few] where they have that insanity concoction…I'll have to see if there's one close to the airport.

  3. I love that you said cultural differences – that is the topic of my bachelor thesis that I am currently writing 😀
    This is so funny!!
    xo

  4. This cracks me up! I am pretty open and love variety but not sure about this shake! 🙂 I love that Anderson is so sure of it though. Billy and I share "cultural differences" in the food dept. as well…and he just grew up across the state line! 🙂

  5. Bacon aftertaste? LOL ewww. The only ingredient I liked was the sweet and condensed milk. I can eat that by the spoonful! I'm Cuban and we use A LOT of sweet & condensed milk in our flans we make. DELICIOUS!
