Well, my avocados ripened and the "unholy guacamole" was a success! I think I need to tweak things a little though - like try to perfect my mixing technique and get a spicier salsa - but all in all I was happy. :-)
I actually decided to try another recipe! This one is called "Potatoes in Paradise" and involves cubing a cooked potato, dicing an avocado (as long as it is ripe like your nose), and wrapping this mixture plus some shredded lettuce into a tortilla. Maybe someone can explain the difference between cubing and dicing?! Anyway, it worked out quite well even though I substituted "broccoli slaw" for the shredded lettuce. I enjoyed it immensely and will make it again.
However, my next venture will be to make a fruit smoothie using soy milk, strawberries and banana. Having just purchased a mini-blender for the purpose, it will be another first!
If you know me, you will know that food preparation is something I view with horror so this turn of events is quite extraordinary. Of course, since I am now becoming much more vegan in my food choices (and restaurants have not caught on to this lifestyle as much as I would like), eating in becomes more of a necessity.
