Guacamole Dip

This summer I have been investigating the possibility of becoming more domestic. With that possible telos in mind, I have designed a recipe (this is, they say, I vital step in becoming domesticated). Fear not, this recipe involves a plethora of manly things: knives, peppers, eating, squeezing limes, etc. And I don’t give a damn what the pixies think.

Bloch-o-mole Dip
3 Avocados – Cut open Avocados (Jerry recommends listening to Slipknot). Scoop out the guts and put in a bowl. Smile your work to see.
1 Tomato -Dice this tomato and put it into the bowl. (Remember, shorter on the sides and put everything in the bowl hereafter)
2 cloves of Garlic – Dice this garlic. (Vampires? No, you need it to keep those cougars away!)
1/4 Onion – Dice this quarter onion (If you’re Misko, or just that way, use whole onion)
1 Jalapeno – Dice this Ja-lap-in-o. (Just do it)
1 Scoop (small) of sour cream – (optional)
Add salt, squeeze juice of 1/2 a lime, and I feel like I’m missing something…
Mix it up and enjoy with tortilla chips.

If you have things that you like in your guac, I’d like to hear about it.

    You might run that garlic and onion in a pan for just a bit with some oil. Getcho sautee on.

  2. Lord Bloch says:

    That is an idea, which sounds better when you say "Getcho sautee on;" however, I would add that there is a time for sautee and a time for the refreshing crunch of a raw onion among the softness of avocado.

  3. Paul K Gautier, Jr says:

    Well, you don't need to liquefy the onion. Just do it a little to get the onions to start releasing their flavor and combining with the garlic. It's the legittest.

  4. Lord Bloch says:

    Fair 'nough.

    (I'm gonna have to start using that word "legittest")

    okay, I do not condone this as a blog post, but I can't help but inform you that if you are not using Chile Powder, you are really missing out.

    Um…not to be pedantic, but can the act of making blochamole dip have a merely possible telos, rather than an actual telos? And for that matter, is a possible telos possible? I guess it depends on whether we mean the term "possible" as a synonym for potential in the act/potency distinction or if we mean "possible" as part of modal logic. So I guess we need to make this distinction if we are going to discuss the possibility of a possible telos or the possibility of a potential telos, whichever Peter intended.

  7. Lord Bloch says:

    Well, not to acknowledge your pedantry, but I guess I used the words "possible telos" improperly or imprecisely. What I wanted to convey was this: I might be interested in pursuing domestic things as a means of achieving yummy foods. I used possible rather than optional or voluntary. I used telos instead of end or goal (in the general non-precise-philosophical way).
    But, just curious, what is a "possible telos?" Is this some sort of analytic philosophy clandestine concept?
