I am running out the door to buy some avocados for my Super bowl family party.
We can not have a party without some guacamole dip and some avocado pieces in our salad. Avocados are one of the only fruits with mono saturated fats, a healthy fat found to help lower our cholesterol. It is also NO salt (sodium), cholesterol or trans fats. Super healthy and tasty. You don't need a lot since it is higher in calories but you get a lot of nutrition in those calories!

You can buy hard avocados and let them ripen at home (at room temperature) for a few days. A really hard avocado can take up to 4 days to ripen. When it has softened, it is ripe and ready.
