This LA Weekly Flickr pool photo comes to you from photographer averagebetty, a lovely shot of a bowl of guacamole. If you don't make guacamole on a regular basis — which you really should, given the fact that there are avocado trees all over this town — you can check out her blog for a recipe. It's a great dish to make with kids: use a potato masher, a molcajete or your hands. It's also perfect nosh food now that the NFL preseason is finally here. (No lockout! Something to watch instead of CNN!) A reminder that if you have any brilliant shots of food you've taken around town recently, you might consider uploading them on our Flickr pool. Never know where they might show up.
