the last of the moves...

During this weekend last year, I wrapped up a great job at American University and left DC, headed to PA for our wedding and then Nashville a few weeks later. I can't believe I have been gone from DC for a year. During the last weekend in May in 2010, I had just graduated from GW and moved into an apartment in Woodley Park with my girlfriend, Jordan. I have moved every spring since 2003 - well that is over as of this year.
After a long week, Vance and I have finally moved into our new house! There are still boxes to be unpacked and pictures to be hung, but at least we are home. We wanted a relaxing comfort meal tonight so in addition to Habanero Tabasco turkey burgers, we had fresh watermelon and guacamole! Everyone loves guac - if they don't, they just haven't tried it.
4 ripe Haas avocados
1 small purple onion
1 small jalapeno pepper
1 clove minced garlic
2 ripe tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Kosher salt
Black pepper
Everything (minus avocado) is a delicious salsa. Add mashed avocado and it gets even better. 
New recipes coming in the weeks ahead; I have to break in the kitchen! 
Happy Memorial Day!
