AVOCADO WITH OVENBAKED HONEY ONIONS, GRILLED CORN AND BARLEY

Avocado

It’s about time that I post my entry for this month’s HotM, this month the theme is A, anything that starts with an A or a dish with an established name that starts with A or any other creative interpretation of the letter A. If you are interested in knowing more and get the details, see here for more information.
I decided to go for A as in Avocado, I like it so much, it has a great texture and that mild flavour is delicious with almost anything which opens up a wide horizon of possibilities. I wonder if that is a acceptable metaphor but I hope you get the drift anyway.
