The election is less than two weeks away, and the candidates are making their final push. Both candidates are spending extra time in Florida; Donald Trump, who needs to win the state but probably won’t, held a rally in Tallahassee. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is making a final push to reach out to Latino voters. So naturally, she went to Univision’s top gossip show “El Gordo Y La Flaca.” Surprisingly, Lili Estefan and Raul De Molina asked complex and insightful questions.
Nah, I’m just playing. They embarrassed themselves.
Aside from the gimme immigration reform questions, the majority of the conversation focused on Hillary’s preferred cuisine (she said she loves Mexican food because of course) and how her granddaughter is learning Spanish (fun fact: Hillary Clinton’s granddaughter is named Xochitl.*).
I hope you’ve got avocados stockpiled. This week, Mexican avocado farmers went on strike, creating a possible shortage in the U.S. Prices are expected to quadruple in the next few days, if not already, and everyone is freaking out. And why not? Considering we consume nearly 45 million pounds of avocados every week, it’s safe to say our way of life is *threatened* by this news. Let’s take a look at what your world might look like with out avocados. Warning, if you’re a food blogger or a fan of cultural appropriation, this might be difficult to digest.
Without avocado, guacamole would just be pico de gallo.
