celebrating vegetables: avocado

Avocados are a wonderful, manly vegetable (large seeds).  Keep them in a brown paper bag outside of the refrigerator until they are soft to the touch.  With a dull dinner knife, cut the avocado in half.  Then run the knife between the flesh and the rind to extract the flesh and the seed.  Cut up the avocado into a lunch-sized canning jar, and pile on top Italian pearled farro (cooked by boiling).  With a couple of mini-cucumbers and a fresh pepper in a paper lunch bag (reusable), you've got a fine lunch.
