O-week Day 2 recap

Yesterday marked one of my favourite events of orientation week and med school life in general: Progressive Dinner. It's a great way to get to know people and bond over a delicious meal. It also gives a chance for the Med I's to ask people in my class about anything and everything.

It was my first time hosting and I had a blast. On the menu was homemade guacamole and brie cheese/crackers for appetizers, build-your-own-fajita for dinner and ice cream sandwich squares. Ok, please bear with me as I talk about this guacamole for a sec. It was amazing, as in if I had one more day to live I would make this guacamole. I got the recipe from Michael Buble. Ok, ok...not the real Michael Buble. His look-alike gave it to me :).

To make Buble's guacamole, you will need:
  • 4 avocados, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • chopped onions
  • cilantro, chopped
  • lime juice
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chili flakes (optional)
All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and voila! You have guacamole! I didn't put a quantity for the onions and cilantro because it really depends on preference. I probably used about 1 cup of chopped onions and 3 springs of cilantro.

And once again, my stomach's willpower was stronger than my camera's. This won't be the last time I blog about these though :).

Dessert was ice cream deliciousness that I first experienced last week. It was incredibly easy to make as well and our guests loved it.

What is your "staple dish" to serve friends or bring to potlucks?
